Info

Hollie Cook

Hollie Cook was born and bred in West London, in a household dominated by music. She gravitated to the sounds of Marc Bolan, David Bowie and The Cure. With Sex Pistols’ Paul Cook as her dad, music was always around.

Hollie left school and joined the re-formed Slits and performed on their 2006 EP Revenge of the Killer Slits.  She went on to join the band on a six week US tour. Hollie was now an official Slit – Ari referred to her as the 'second singer' – so when it came to record a new Slits album in L.A., Hollie's vocals, keyboards and even her song Cry all featured.

She went on to collaborate with Ian Brown and Jamie T, before starting to work with our very own Mike "Prince Fatty" Pelanconi. Hollie’s passion for reggae singers Janet Kay and Phyllis Dillon combined with classic 60s girl groups formed the basis for her new solo work of self-coined ‘tropical pop’. The two locked themselves in the studio to record her self-titled debut album, released on Mr Bongo in the summer of 2011, followed by a dub version in 2012.  Work has also begun on Hollie's next solo album scheduled for early 2013.

Hollie has appeared on Later... with Jools Holland, supported The Stone Roses at their Heaton Park shows in Manchester.

They appeared at Sol Festival, Galtres Festival and The Gomad Festival in Ooty (India). Their release last year of “The Dubby Rock EP” received strong radio airplay support across the UK and reached number 4 in the Itunes Reggae Charts, they are also in a new documentary - "Manchester: Beyond Oasis" and recently won a slot at the One Love festival the UK's biggest Reggae festival. 2014 saw them playing The Willowman Festival with The Wailers and Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show.Support slots with Madness and UB40 are booked for November.
