Biography

“I was driving around listening to Wrecking Ball by Emmylou Harris. That was it. That was my moment of clarity… that was when I decided what I was gonna do with my life.”

Not two years from that day, Holly Nelson was named Best Female Performer at the 2003 Orange County Music Awards, where her song Masterpiece was also nominated for Best Song. That was six months before her debut record was set to be released. She would later go on to win Best Female Performer the next year as well.

Her critically-acclaimed debut, Leaving The Yard, is highlighted by Holly’s beautiful voice, insightful lyrics, and the impressive musicianship of Andrew D. Prickett on guitar, Elijah Thomson on bass, Richard Swift on keys, and Frank Lenz on drums.

Holly is currently writing songs in preparation for her long-awaited second album.
