The Man In London Town
A cover for you...
k.d. lang said about this video: "I think it's great. I love your narrative read on the lyrics!!! Good job."
This made for a very happy Holly!
Thank you for coming to my website, it's nice to meet you. ;)
I'm Holly Kirby, a singer-songwriter from the Isle of Wight, England, UK. I write and perform songs and produce my own music videos.
My music is mainly pop/celtic/folk and I sing, play the guitar, piano, ukulele and Appalachian Dulcimer. People who have influenced my music include Enya, Loreena McKennitt, Joni Mitchell, k.d.lang, Amy MacDonald, Texas/Sharleen Spiteri, Dido. The folks over at Bestival describe my music like this, which I think it rather lovely!
"Her songs are intelligently written tales of love and loss held together by her wondrously heartbreaking vocals."
I've played lots of private functions, gigs, and festivals, including the Isle of Wight Festival (acoustic and Kashmir stages), the Wickham Festival (main stage), and Bestival. You can see videos of some of these events on my news page. A couple of years ago I also entered and won a UK video competition, the prize of which was to play live on stage with Scottish singer-songwriter Amy MacDonald, which was brilliant!
I've just graduated from the University of Surrey with a BMus (Creative Music Technology) and am concentrating on my music - writing and recording, releasing and gigging! If you would like me to perform at your event, or you would like to use my music for any purpose, please contact me here. :)
