Hollie Cook released her debut album last year through independent world music label Mr Bongo Records. Daughter of Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook, Hollie was a member of the reformed Slits, having been introduced by a family friend, and has also more recently collaborated with Ian Brown and Jamie T.
Entering professional acting, singing and modeling at a young age, she soon rejected her performance arts schooling for a music path truer to her influences, with reggae forming the basis for her solo work. Her recent collaboration with the legendary record producer Prince Fatty (Lily, Allen, Graham Coxon, Gregory Isaacs) see’s Cook explore the dub arena on ‘Prince Fatty Presents Hollie Cook In Dub’, an alternative version of her debut.
Hollie will release her new album early next year, with a new single expected this October.
