2017's Performers

Freya Josephine Hollick

Freya Josephine Hollickfreya is an Old-Timey, Country, Folk singer/songwriter from the Victorian Goldfields. Hollick has written and performed for many years in different styles, though has always had her roots in folk music, coming to earlier 20th Century folk, blues and country music through a hunger for knowledge of how and from where modern music evolved. Well versed in all kinds of music, Freya has followed a path back to a time that holds true to her voice, her songwriting and her story. Hollick's voice has been described as haunting, as both powerful and fragile, it is truly a voice unlike any other, and one that is of another time.

Many conversations with Hollick centre around her uncertainty as to where her songs and stories come from, "They seem to fall out of the sky at any time of day, and they pester you 'til you sit down and write it out... makes for a pretty disorganised life". Hollick has said she often wakes late in the night, with a melody, or a line and, as commanded, stays up with the song until it is all out and whole. When asked about her process, she is certain that there isn't really a process, that any time she tries to write, without it coming to her "as an apparition of sorts", that the effort is audible in the song, and "that sure doesn't make for easy listening" which is what she is all about.
If you like country music including acts like The Carter Family, Dolly Parton, Gillian Welch, Patsy Cline and old-time Appalachian music, then Freya Josephine Hollick's music is for you. Her voice and songs are some of the most authentic country getting around, and will certainly take you back through time to the front porches of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.
