Freya Josephine Hollick
Cosmic Country Queen Freya Josephine Hollick delivers her warmest and most deeply intimate performances in duo mode backed by Australian band member and guitarist extraordinaire Tommy Brooks.
Featuring songs from throughout her career, and from her long-awaited forthcoming album The Real World, Freya paints vivid pictures of love, loss and the cheating outlaw heart, spotlighting the craft that has won her a reputation among peers and critics as a leader in the new country inspired movement.
Freya brings her audience in close and strips down her most memorable songs and presents them much as they were original written as she picks out delicate acoustic patterns for her incredible voice to soar above, Brookes adds the punctuations of crying guitar and nimble country movement he is so admired for.
A chance to witness a rare talent in an environment that encourages spiritual connection with an artist who continues to manifest her ultimate destiny.
