Stay A Little Longer with Lots Holloway

Lots Holloway is a budding artist who likes to take steer her own destiny as Producer, Singer, Writer and Creative Director of her own music videos. Originally from Cornwall, Lots traded in life in the Cornish Riviera for the hustle and bustle of London. Lots was also featured on the 2012 series of X-Factor and is now working on her debut EP due to be released this year. We share with you five facts about Lots Holloway from Lots herself.

Lots first realised she wanted to sing when…

I don’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be on stage playing music. Although I originally wanted to be a drummer in a band; I was a very good drummer… but I could never sit still for long enough. I wanted to interact with the audience, I wanted to tell the story – I never thought my voice was that good, but I didn’t care.

Lots’ music is like…

I make an alternative style of pop, based on indie ideals. I love trashy guitars, I love big loud drums, but I also love a catchy melody. I like to be creative, I record sounds and experiment with instruments until I can make a sonic that I’ve not heard before, something that might catch your ear. I listened to a lot of 70s music growing up, and I liked how experimental a lot of the artists were.

Lots is so excited about the release of her debut EP because…

A few of the songs on the EP were written over a year ago but have had to wait until now to be heard. I am also excited because I’ve produced this EP as well as writing it; I’ve grown a lot and learnt a lot since I first started making music, I’m proud to be putting my work out there.
