Born in the heart of the American desert, in Santa Fe, New Mexico and raised in the mountains of Southern New Zealand, Holly Arrowsmith is a songwriter on the rise locally and internationally, a strong forerunner in New Zealand’s current folk revivalist movement.
With sound comparisons to the likes of Joni Mitchell, Gillian Welch and Nick Drake, Holly touches upon the earnest matters of life, wrapped in metaphors of nature and the soothing mountain environment that raised her.
'A Dawn I Remember' Arrowsmith's second full length album was crowdfunded and released June 22nd 2018. Recorded between a cottage in the coastal town of Colac Bay and The Sitting Room recording studio in Lyttelton, New Zealand with renowned producer Ben Edwards (Marlon Williams, Nadia Reid, Aldous Harding, Tami Neilson.)
Arrowsmith's first album 'For The Weary Traveller' received the VNZMA Tui Award for 'Best Folk Album of 2016', and with it she supported Sixto Rodrigues, Jessica Pratt, Tiny Ruins and Nadia Reid.
'This is by far Holly Arrowsmith's best work to date. She has crafted an evocative ’big sky’ album that acknowledges and honours its influences without wasting too much time being reverential. Over this whole collection there is a fine musical sensibility, with melodic and lyrical strength, sensitive and intelligent arrangement /production, and clear creative vision. It is music that draws you back for another listen and offers fresh reward every time.'
/Trevor Faville
