Inspired by English and Appalachian folk blended with alternative pop music, Amy Hollinrake draws on womens stories within folklore and mythology and fuses them with a contemporary sound placing her at the forefront of the new era of feminist neo-folk. Described as "absolutely haunting";, BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour and "Both timeless and utterly contemporary"; Songwriting Magazine. Her recent EP Sad Lady Songs Vol.1. reimagines
traditional folk songs and tales, combining them with dulcimers and synthesizers to create a head spinning mix of yesterday and today.
She has garnered attention from the likes of BBC 6 Musics Marc Riley and Tom Robinson, BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 4 Womans Hour. She also gained prestigious awards from EFDSS, Help Musicians and the Bert Jansch Foundation for her work. She also recently appeared on projects for Disney (The Little Mermaid) 20th Century Fox (The Boogyman) and Don Broco.
