"The Vintage Jazz Vocalist of Today"

Miss Holiday Swing, or Holly as she's more commonly known, is a Jazz & Swing Vocalist from the heart of Kent, in England. Her latest album, "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" reached Number 6 in the iTunes Jazz Charts (quite the achievement for an unsigned artist) and she was also voted "Best Live Stream Performance" for the whole of the UK through the Book Entertainment Awards 2021. 

If you're thinking that you recognise Holly's face, you most probably do! She is an esteemed performer amongst the Vintage scene, not because she is old, but simply because she started out at a very young age. Her career began in her early teenage years as 1/3 of vocal harmony group, The Clover Sisters. These gals performed up and down the country as part of a USO reenactment troupe and even had the opportunity to perform in France! 

Holly then went on to Study Musical Theatre first at The Southern Theatre Arts Centre and then at The American Musical Theatre Academy in London. A degree that she feels gives her the extra pizzazz in her performances today! She's often told she performs from head to toe. After college, Holly joined one of the show teams aboard Aida Cruises. A real career highlight and where Miss Holiday Swing found her (sea) legs! As one of the lead vocalist on board she had to create a solo show and she could think of nothing better than showcasing her talents as a Vintage Style Singer. 

When she came back to dry land she decided to pursue the act Miss Holiday Swing further and firmly secured her place as a Wartime tribute singer across the UK. Fast forward 7 years and she has now expanded her repertoire immensely, dedicating her career to the music from the 1920's to the 2020's, but always performing with her retro flare! She's been lucky enough to sing at prestigious events and venues such as The War & Peace Revival, The Twinwood Festival, Cahoots, Mr Fogg's, Saga Cruises and for The Belmond British Pullman! Not to mention she created her own online show during the 2020 lockdown called "Tea, Chat & Songs" which not only won her an award, but also led her to livestream a performance for Google in China!  

Miss Holiday Swing is so pleased to be out performing again after the pandemic and looks set to have a busy year! She has been thrilled to release an album entitled "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" dedicated to everyone who tuned in to her online shows and their requests, and she hopes to release more music very soon.
