Win tickets to see Hollie Cook
This competition is now closed
Lady of the moment, Hollie Cook, was born and bred in West London in a household dominated by music. She gravitated to the sounds of Marc Bolan, David Bowie and The Cure. With Sex Pistol Paul Cook as her dad, music was always around.
Entering professional acting, singing and modelling at a young age; Hollie soon rejected her performance arts schooling for a musical path truer to her influences. Family friend and Slits singer Ari Up persuaded Hollie to sing backing vocals for a new EP Revenge of the Killer Slits, which she followed by ditching school to join the band on a six week tour. Hollie was now an official Slit - Ari referred to Hollie as the 'Second Singer' - so when it came to record a new Slits album in LA, Hollie's vocals, keyboards and even her song Cry all featured.
More collaborations followed: a duet with Jamie T on his Chaka Demus EP, with Ian Brown on The World Is Yours, and most significantly as featured vocalist on Mike Pellanconi / Prince Fatty's underground reggae hit Milk and Honey.
Hollie's passion for reggae singers Janet Kay and Phyllis Dillon combined with classic 60s girl groups formed the basis for her new solo work of self coined 'tropical pop'.
