Album Notes
This is the first release from the founder of Indiegrrl and Indiegrrl Records. Holly started playing guitar in July 1999, and in her first year on the acoustic music circuit, was wowing national audiences at listening rooms from the Bitter End and Living Room in NYC, to Club Passim in Boston, to the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in 2000, to the Tractor Tavern in Seattle. She has toured extensively throughout the US, greeting fans everywhere with her refreshing style of hybrid folk and blues, usually with her 6 year old daughter in tow.

Kevin Allen

this cd rocks!
I just saw Holly and her band at Madison's in Seattle, and I bought her CD there, and I was looking through her website and found this place to say how GREAT I think the CD is. The songs are all different. She's got every genre down. If you can see her live, do it! If you can't, get this CD. Holly, I can't wait for your next one!

I have been waiting for a great new soulful talent as Holly is. Great !!!!!!!
It gets you in the groove and takes you away. Great soulful voice. Her voice is more like an instrument. The musicians add to the heart of the songs making you get into the music. Thank you. It's hard for me to find music that I can feel, like yours.

Scott Mclennan, Worcester (ma) Telegram, Datebookjuly, 1999

"Charmingly blunt..."
"Three Chord Plea" is charmingly blunt, as on "What I Miss", to harrowing, mood evoked on "A Thousand Times." She cuts through with a
smoky, after midnight feel that ensures this (Indiegrrl) ringleader will not be confused with Lilith's white bread leading lady, Sarah McLachlan.

The Seattle Rocket (seattle Wa)

"Spirited and Edgy"
...On an album where the studio tracks are as spirited and edgy as the live tracks, Figueroa
proves that she can cut loose vocally no matter where she is.

The Worcester Phoenix, Laura Kiritsy, July 1999

"...stunning debut album..."
"Three Chord Plea" is a stunning debut album, complete with haunting folk storytelling,
emotionally charged a cappella, bluesy semi acoustic alt-rock, and down and dirty blues that
will knock you over.

Richard Fox, Wcuw 91.3 Fm Worcester Ma

"...earthy passion..."
...Holly Figueroa Band's release Three Chord Plea is a mix of bluesy folk with a fine edge,
delivered with earthy passion.

The Washington Blues Society, May 1999

...blatently erotic...a masterwork
...Blatantly erotic, unadulterated honesty and raw emotion, Three Chord Plea is a superb
offering of euphonic passion expressed in acoustic format that should not be filed into any one
distinct music category...a masterwork...

Amy Jeffries Wrtc 89.3fm, Hartford Ct

... terrific! (three chord plea) has the edginess of rock with the provocative lyrics of folk.

Doug Tucker, Kwva, 88.1/ Krvm, 91.9 Eugene, Or

from jazz to blues with a NW focus, Holly delivers spirited performances on her disc...worth a
listen to see if it is your cup of plea
