Holly Macve

Raised in Galway and Yorkshire, Brighton-based singer and songwriter Holly Macve transcends those Irish-English roots for the pastoral hills of Tennessee on her debut album, Golden Eagle. Just 21, Macve sings as if she's known country and bluegrass music all of her life and she has, listening to Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline and jazz singers like Billie Holiday as a child.

With a catch in her voice and heartbreak on her mind, Macve's songs, like "Timbuktu" or "Fear," are brooding, beautiful and overcast.
