Here at LCM we are big fans of Bob's Harris' 'Under The Apple Tree Sessions' and our very talented LCM featured artist today Holly Rose Webber Band recently performed a great session for them. Holly is from Harrogate in North Yorkshire and is another of our wonderful group of UK Country music artists, who we hope will have a great 2017. Our LCM #TrackOfTheDay 'Love Ain't Enough' is taken from her Sparkle & Fade album.
Born in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England in 1987, Holly Rose Webber fell under the influence of bands such as Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, the Small Faces and The Rolling Stones from a very early age. This, coupled with the influence of her Father (he was the singer in the psychedelic rock band Wally in the 1970s who were signed to Atlantic Records) meant it was no surprise that these voices influenced her decision to become a singer.
Being the only girl out of six brothers, she was raised and educated on rock and roll, soul, country, blues and everything in between. She spent her adolescence in and out of the studio dabbling in her own songwriting, producing a couple of EPs. After finishing school and graduating from Leeds University with honours in Law, she decided to try her luck with the property market in Central London and moved to Notting Hill, selling multi-million pound properties throughout the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. In 2012 she began writing songs for her debut album. Although sales is a passion, it always came second to her love of making music and in 2013 she left her career in London and moved back to the beloved motherland of Harrogate.
Surrounding herself with some of Harrogate’s most talented musicians, all of whom are life long friends, she continued to write and build material for her album. It started off as a project, a bit of fun, but having played the demos to some very influential people in the music industry it became clear that it was a real opportunity to showcase her talent and Holly Rose Webber was born.
She shot her first music videos for the single “Love Ain't Enough” and her cover of the ever-popular Elvis Presley’s “Suspicious Minds”. Having previously made a couple of visits to Nashville, Tennessee she built relationships with local artists and songwriters in the hope of getting her music in front of the right people…
