  Holly Figueroa
Holly Figueroa " an upcoming, break out, soon to be known artist…" - Seventeen Magazine

Recently featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered”, native Ohioan Holly Figueroa started playing guitar in July 1999, when during her first tour, her guitar player broke his hip while pitching the tent before their first festival show…in front of ten thousand people. Not knowing a thing about playing guitar, she learned three chords in three days and finished her tour by herself. This type of tenacity has always been evident in Holly's career and personal life. In her first year solo on the acoustic music circuit, she was wowing national audiences in listening rooms from The Bitter End in New York City, to Club Passim in Boston, to the Tractor Tavern in Seattle and Genghis Cohen in Los Angeles. Seattle based Figueroa has toured extensively throughout the US, greeting fans everywhere with her refreshing style of hybrid folk and blues, usually with her six year old daughter in tow.

Her new record, "Dream in Red", was produced and recorded by Evan Brubaker (Laura Love/Darryl Purpose/David LaMotte), and Troy Glessner (Joel RL Phelps/Sky Cries Mary) at Spectre Studios in Seattle, WA. The record is graced by musicians Keith Lowe (Fiona Apple/Duffy Bishop), Dan Tyack (Asleep at the Wheel/Danny Barnes) Jonathan Kingham, Stacey Board, Sean Halley, Dan White, and Kym Tuvim. What started out as a bare bones, acoustic record recorded in a living room studio quickly turned into a lush but sparingly produced record some have called "Jonatha Brooke meets Ani DiFranco". (Susanne Millsaps, KRCL, Salt Lake City, Utah). Holly is the founder of Indiegrrl (a 1400 member international organization for women in the independent music industry) and Indiegrrl Records, which was recently picked up by national distributors, All Indie. (Valley Media Group). She also recently signed with Hacate Entertainment Group in New York, a licensing/publishing company, and has had music licensed through Oxygen Media, MTV, and the WB Network for various shows.

"From traditional tunes like "Turn Around" to excellent original songs, Holly shows she has a depth of talent
and collaborative power to make it all happen...an up and coming star on the rise." - Ruby Brown, 103.7 KMTT Seattle
"...an incredibly exciting live performer, I had goosebumps the entire time she was on stage." -Deborah Semer, National Acadamy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS/Grammy's©)
"With songwriting ranging from sweet to searing, and vocals that range from mellow richness to earthy blues growls, this CD really shows what Holly is capable of" - Susanne Milsapps, KRCL, Salt Lake City, UT
“with blistering vocals, lush arrangements, and haunting lyrics, Figueroa once again proves she… is a powerful musical force to be reckoned with…” - Carla DeSantis, Rockrgrl Magazine, October 2001
