As a prolific classical contemporary solo piano composer and artist, Holly writes from a place of deep authenticity and transports her audiences into a receptive atmosphere of meditative calm. Holly's fourth album, "Art On The Piano," is set to be released May, 2019. 

"Art On The Piano" is a collection of light, quiet transcendental melodies with gentle chordal accompaniment; a neoclassical impressionistic study that is relaxing and healing for the listener. 

 

Born in western Kentucky, Holly began studying violin at age three, piano at eight, and creating compositions on the piano by nine.  Her training includes many years of private study, as well as private piano and composition study at Indiana University.  

 

Holly's solo piano debut album, "Traveler" was released in 2003.  Her second album "Storyteller" was released in 2016, followed by the orchestrated version of "Storyteller" in 2017, by Ludek Drizhal, featuring Holly at the piano and the Prague Metropolitan Orchestra.

 

As a physical therapist, Holly has an inherent understanding of the healing power of music, and enjoys the art of creating pieces that are "good for the neurology."  She lives with her husband Fred, and beloved dog, Darbie,  in Edmond, OK and loves playing in StudioJones, the self-proclaimed "best practice room in the world."

A common theme Holly hears about her music is how healing it is to others.  One fan shared  a personal account of her losing battle with

C. Diff., a very serious bacterial infection of the gut that can become fatal.  She was taken to the hospital with a blood pressure of 80/40 and described herself as dying, afraid to go to sleep because she might not awaken.  Her attuning father brought her a Walkman with Holly's CD "Traveler" and told her "just go where the music takes you".  In her dream, the Lord's hand came down to cradle her.  When she awakened, her fever was gone, and she was discharged as fully recovered the next day. 

 

"I wish for my music to reach the truth in each person listening...to help them take pause in the busyness of life and to bring them peace and clarity. I envision that it is most likely played as background music...it provides a setting of peace...but when one listens closer, it can 'take them away'...and always to the best place..."
