Holly Holmes

Jazz vocalist and musicologist Holly Holmes began singing as a young girl growing up in Wisconsin. Through the good fortune of an excellent high school music program, Holly developed a lifelong love for jazz and Brazilian music. She earned a degree in jazz studies from Western Michigan University and following graduation in 2000 was awarded an internship with the jazz programming department at Washington DC's prestigious Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. There she assisted with the Dr. Billy Taylor radio series as well as working as an audio engineer for other live performances featuring Nnenna Freelon, Kurt Elling, Freddy Cole, and several others.
