NEWS: HOLLY MCNARLAND RELEASES RUN BODY RUN - MAY 15TH



INDEPENDENTLY RELEASED ALBUM OUT DIGITALLY
ON MAY 15th

PERFORMANCE IN TORONTO DURING NXNE

CONTEST FOR HER FANS RUNNING IN PREVIEW OF
ALBUM’S RELEASE AND NXNE SHOW



With her signature whisper-to-a-scream voice, Holly McNarland returns with her first independent release, Run Body Run, to be released digitally on May 15th. A collection of ten new songs, the album is the result of over a year’s work in and out of the studio, and for Holly, represents a move to become closer to her fans. Check out the driving first track Alone’s Just Fine for a taste of what’s to come on the new album, and don’t miss Holly in Toronto on June 16th during NXNE, to hear her new songs live (details below).

Since moving back to Toronto with her family, the JUNO winning singer-songwriter and mother of two has been busy writing for other artists, and composing her own songs. Bridging the gap between the country music she grew up singing with her mom, and the rock her voice leans towards, Holly is ready to share some of her favourite songs that have been in the works for the past five years. Writing whenever the mood strikes, she is often triggered by the things around her – people, places, film and other media. Title track, Run Body Run, was inspired by her daughter, who was 3 years old when Holly wrote the song, and the inspiration she felt hearing her child tell herself that she can do anything.

This is the first time that Holly will be releasing an album independently and she feels that she is now free to make music when she wants, how she wants and with whom she wants. “When I was with a label, I felt very far from and separated from my fans outside of playing shows,” she says. “Now there’s no separation—I am working on my career without a manager, or a record label. I’m going to my fans directly for support via social networking and it’s been amazing. Seeing how much people will back something up when they truly believe in it, and feel connected has made me want to be a part of the music world again.”

Holly is reaching out to her fans by running an exciting contest in preview of the album release and upcoming show at NXNE. Fans are asked to write in or submit a short YouTube video to tell a story about one of Holly’s songs that changed their life, or day, or provided some inspiration. The grand prize winner will receive a NXNE package that includes transportation to and from Toronto for the festival, passes to NXNE, the very first signed copy of Run Body Run, and a meet and greet with Holly, as well as other great prizes! Details about the contest can be found here.
