Local artist, Miss Holiday Swing (Holly Chambers) popped into the CSRfm studios recently for a chat with Jazz Jams presenter Konstantin Nicholas-Rega giving listeners the chance to be amongst the first to hear her latest releases “What are You Doing New Years Eve?” & “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm”.
Konstantin said, “I just loved the vintage vibe ringing through these two tracks. There is a warmth that reminds me of Ella Fitzgerald and Peggy Lee. Holly’s voice is strong and controlled; she gives her all, yet does so in gentle lines, pulling the listener forward, easing them as if a warm fire. These songs are not the “popular” Christmas songs, and this only adds to their unique qualities. Having her in the studio, I was struck by her love of 20’s, 30’s. 40’s style and also her own personal take on singers such as Billie Holiday, Ruth Brown, and contemporaries such as The Jive Aces and Van Morrison. A wonderful voice and a true passion for the essence and the potential of/for jazz music, Miss Holiday Swing is a singer to keep your eye on!”
