Update Stevie Holland + Follow

Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Stevie Holland continues to chart her own path as a completely original artist and unique song stylist. A dynamic performer and intelligent lyricist, she’s traversed many musical worlds, headlining at major concert halls, jazz clubs and cabaret rooms, developing an unusually eclectic fan base.

Her current project is a one-woman theatrical adventure entitled LOVE, LINDA: THE LIFE OF MRS. COLE PORTER. With music and lyrics by Cole Porter and book by Stevie with Gary William Friedman, LOVE, LINDA stars Stevie as Linda Lee Thomas, the Southern beauty who married and was a driving force behind legendary songwriter Cole Porter at the dawn of the roaring twenties.

The cast album was recorded and released February 2010. After 2 successful runs off-Broadway at the Triad Theater, LOVE, LINDA is currently touring regionally....
