NEWs: Lydia Hol Release Debut Album "Boats" @ Economy ShoeShop

Press Release provided by SpinCount

Boats is the debut EP from Vancouver based songstress and raconteur Lydia Hol, and like a decadent dark chocolate or rich rye whiskey, the six songs it entails benefit both sonically and lyrically from a perfect balance of bitter and sweet. This young poet, storyteller, and multi-instrumentalist has a dynamic yet delicate voice that’s instantly engaging; that draws you in like a smoking chimney on a crisp winter’s night.

With her elegant vocals and a few chords at the core of each, Hol’s songs incorporate elements from traditional and contemporary styles; from folk to pop with plenty in between. Some feature lush arrangements with additional instrumentation from members of her touring band, The Barefoot Boys. Others, like the title track, are stripped down to just singing and strings, bringing her narratives to the very forefront.

When shared from the stage, Hol’s stories and inviting banter will capture imaginations and create a relationship that reaches well beyond that of audience and balladeer – a musical friendship like no other.
