The Hollands! craft handmade music with an Avant-garde folk/punk blend. Weaving delicate lyrics wrapped in brawny rhythms, their message is both visionary and authentic. Their passion for music and each other comes out in every show.
Jana Holland is driven by her personal need to be and feel connected to others. She openly and honestly shares her life journey, offering an emotional, intellectual and spiritual response to deeply moving issues. Holland’s deep minor tones and angelic voice offer solace to any who listen. In honor of her late grandmother, Grace, Jana has become a representative of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of her 2007 release, ONE, go to support the NBCF.
Craig Holland hails from Melbourne, Australia. Growing up in a culture of music and diversity, his musical roots take him back to the mid-90's punk scene. His most recent project was with national touring band, Ballydowse, a 9 piece Celtic punk band. Craig brings his quietly powerful presence to the duo that is The Hollands!
Over the past year they have toured in the Midwest, down the East Coast to Florida, and as far away as Australia.
"To Holland, With Love", their first joint effort, released April 14, 2009, has Jana’s signature soul and sound, adding banjo and mandolin to her mix, while Craig demonstrates his penchant for the power of slides and riffs on a well played guitar.
Together – marvelous!
