Holly Penfield releases a brand new single La Recoleta

London, 31 October 2019

San Franciscan singer/songwriter Holly Penfield releases her single ‘La Recoleta' from her new album ‘Tree Woman’ on October the thirty-first. It has been a long time coming! The new album is her first self penned release since her debut album ‘Full Grown Child‘ (1982) and ‘Parts Of My Privacy’ (1990). The first was produced by renowned record producers Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn (of Blondie, Suzi Quatro, and The Knack fame). The second by Ian Ritchie (Roger Waters, Laurie Anderson, Pete Wylie and Hugh Cornwell ). 

The gap between then and now has been filled by Holly touring the world, playing over 3000 concerts. She has supported the likes of Dr John, Mike Bloomfield, John Mellencamp, Taj Mahal, John Lee Hooker and John Mayall. She has performed for Prince Charles and Princess Diana as well as appearing onstage at the infamous 1996 Brit Awards with Michael Jackson.

Holly has received outstanding recognition for her outrageous cabaret career (or as she calls it, performing as her evil twin) which included a three year residency at London's Savoy hotel. "Holly Penfield knows exactly what she is doing and she is 'an original'. If I had to make comparisons, I'd say she is like David Bowie meets Liza Minnelli" quipped Simon Cowell of Holly’s cabaret persona. 

‘Tree Woman’ marks a return to Holly's rock and roll roots.
