Holly Throsby is a musician from Sydney, Australia. She has released five solo albums: On Night (2004), Under the Town (2006), A Loud Call (2008), a children’s album called See! (2010), and Team (2011). Most of Holly’s albums were recorded with experimental producer Tony Dupé in NSW (in a house on Saddleback Mountain, a house in the Kangaroo Valley, and a 19th Century church in Wildes Meadow). A Loud Call was recorded with Mark Nevers (Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Lambchop) at his house in Nashville.
Holly has been nominated for four ARIA Awards – two for Best Female Artist, one for Best Children’s Album, and one as part of Seeker Lover Keeper, her band with Sally Seltmann & Sarah Blasko. Seeker Lover Keeper’s debut album was recorded in New York with Jim White (Dirty Three, Cat Power) on drums. It was released in Australia in 2011, debuted at #3 on the ARIA chart, and has received gold accreditation.
Holly has toured Australia, and the world, many times. She mostly travels with her long-time band, The Hello Tigers (Bree van Reyk & Jens Birchall), and has toured with artists such as Bill Callahan, Joanna Newsom, Paul Kelly, Andrew Bird, The Tallest Man On Earth, Devendra Banhart, Mark Kozelek & The Handsome Family. She has recorded duets with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Hayden & Josh Pyke.
Holly has an ongoing role as a peer at The Australia Council; has served as a judge for the Australian Music Prize; and is a council member for the animal protection institute, Voiceless. She is interested in literature, cryptic crosswords, small towns and dogs.
