Holly's sophomore E.P "Slow Down" was released in August 2018, reaching #6 in the iTunes charts, with her amazing talented vocals, well crafted songwriting, and amazing melodic music she continues to receive support from BBC Introducing as well as global radio play in Europe and the U.S.A
When "Stick Around" was released in December, Holly was joined by a full band at her biggest headline show to date. Still hungry to go further 2019 see's Holly releasing her full band "Live" E.P AND she is taking her show to the next level by going international and taking her solo show on the road across Canada this year for the "Canada tour"
Not only that but Holly has also been invited to play at "Canadian Music Week". Making the dream happen for Holly has taken her a lot of time and hard work that isn't going un-noticed. Intending to fufill her dream of completing this tour of Canada, she has launched an Indie-Go-Go Campaign to help raise the funding.

"I was listening to a girl from the North East the other day, Holly Rees, and her track ‘Toast’ and it floored me. It was so brave and created by someone who was really, truly, being themselves. Don’t believe anyone who tells you there is no future in music. There is. All you have to be is good." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
"Charmingly goofy and engaging, she has that knack of captivating an audience with her storytelling and effortless patter between songs." - NARC. Magazine
