Pure and unfettered but not lacking in power or force, New Zealand's Holly Arrowsmith bares her soul to enlighten those of her listeners. Her earthy, timeless vocals serve as a catalyst for stories of crystalline prose, offering comfort in their unique and profound delivery. This songbird's gentle plea for the hearts of humanity is infused with wisdom and strung together in a hopeful and uplifting account of existence.
Recipient of the TUI Award for 'Best Folk Album of 2016' and recent nominee for the 2016 'Silver Scroll Award', Arrowsmith is clearly here to stay. With a voice that cannot be disregarded, and a refreshing writing style, hear tales of life and times encased in lucid reverie of the natural world.
Since the 2015 release of her debut album 'For The Weary Traveller', Holly has toured New Zealand, Australia and the United States. She has graced the stage at New Zealand's largest music Festivals, supported internationally acclaimed folk artist 'Sixto Rodriguez' and toured with 'Fly My Pretties'.
'A lovely voice and an ancient script add up to a stunning folk interpretation of New Zealand'.

'There’s something about Arrowsmith’s presence that is a different kind of alchemy altogether – in the unusual quality of her delivery and her enchanting voice, which swings between being light and free, before turning into a growl or lilting into a sweet head voice.'
