DUTCH HOLLY – INDIE POP DUO
Jen and Tres are the inseparable dynamic duo of Dutch Holly. Both found their way to Phoenix, AZ and met one night by sheer coincidence or fate depending on who you ask. Jen’s band, Perspehone’s Picnic, was opening for Tres’ band, Dalmatian Car, in a bar that was open for one night only – that night – and then closed. When Jen finished her set, she pondered aloud from the stage, “Who’s gonna buy me a beer?” “That’d be me” replied Tres. She hasn’t bought a beer since.
Dutch Holly’s smart, quirky songwriting employs equal parts modern folk-tronica and retro psychedelia under lush harmonies. Their live show is mesmerizing and energetic as they live-loop multiple instruments and vocals to produce huge psychedelic soundscapes and danceable grooves. They garner friends and fans everywhere they play.
Watch the Cloud 44-A’s in action on trumpet and vocals! With its switchable response settings for Voice and Music, the 2014 TEC Award Nominated Cloud 44-A active ribbon mic excels at both.
“Georgia on My Mind” by RED was recorded Live at “iCanStudioLive” in Jakarta, Indonesia.
