Holly Rees - 'Magpie'
Originally hailing from the rolling landscape of the Durham Dales, there's an undeniable folksy element to North-East based singer songwriter Holly Rees. Her talent for sewing together simple, immediately memorable melodies with an honest confessional lyrical style has helped Rees become one of the hottest tipped talents to emerge from her region (Supported by the likes of BBC6 Music's Tom Robinson).
Today Rees has revealed her new single 'Magpie'. A charming, unabashed pop song about a young singer who finds them self broke and homesick, having squandered their last penny on a guitar they love but have no audience to justify its playing. This kind of candid, approach to songwriting, gives Rees' songs at wit that is at once sweet yet strangely heartbreaking.
