Friday Night

Playing after the Daft Punk Launch is the Jess Holland Band to read more about Jess and her band click here

With reviews like ‘a voice that could peel the paint off walls’ [Mike McClellan] it’s evident that starlet Jess Holland is one of those musicians to watch out for. Stepping out of the shadows of her band to record her debut solo release, this 2011 Voice of Urban Country winner is only just beginning to warm up. But that’s only part of her story…

Jess kicked off 2011 with a great start to her solo career, being chosen as a Top 20 Finalist for the Toyota Star Maker. With the experience of Star Maker behind her, Jess began to establish herself as a an artist, playing along side acts such as Ladies of Jazz (Paulini, Christine Anu and Grace Knight), Luke Dickens, Uncle Bobs Jug Band and Adam Kilpatrick. 

Earning the title of 2011 Voice of Urban Country at the 2011 Urban Country Music Festival in Caboolture was a great step forwards for Jess. This accolade allowed her to not only record her debut album, but also star in her debut video clip for My Kinda Town on CMC. Facebook Page
