The Hollands! with J Lind

It's time for gardening again! Yay! And concerts in the garden! YAY!!! We are starting the season off in a big way. Tell your friends, invite your neighbors, bring the kids and the dogs. The Hollands! Jana Holland, originally a Michigander, has traveled between 4 continents, with an interest in songs of old and desire for the laymen to experience community through song. Her willingness to give any instrument "a go" has lead to offerings on the Mandolin, Banjo and Guitar. Jana's deep minor tones and angelic voice extend solace to all who listen. She sets the mood and embraces your mind with her poetic yet ground level lyrics. ​ Songwriter in her own right, delicate and natural harmonies are added by daughter and gifted vocalist, Graciana Holland. This little darling is stunning and immediately evokes a desire to hear more. She is also accomplished on the Ukulele, Piano and Guitar. ​ Craig, a native of Australia, began his music career playing punk rock, including a 7 year stint in Ballydowse, a Chicago-based Celtic Punk band recorded by famed indie producer, Steve Albini. Craig offers a hypnotic and unique sound to The Hollands! When Craig is playing the Taylor acoustic, the rhythms are almost Celtic by nature. ​ Named after the infamous Australia bush Poet, Banjo Patterson, the youngest Holland, "Banjo" is a force to reckoned with on the Cajon’ and other percussion instruments. His inventive beats compliment Craig's mesmerizing rhythms. ​ The Hollands! are seasoned concert performers, engaging audiences and rousing a sing-a-long with their intimate merrymaking. By the end of their performance, audiences will feel like they are part of the band. This is the experience and magic that happens when The Hollands! come to town. Testimonials: "Beautiful, elegant songs interspersed with exuberant work. The Hollands! make hand-forged, civilized folk." ~Johan Schoenmakers, AltCountryForum, Netherlands ​ "...simple, acoustic folk jams with a variety of instruments sharing the spotlight, falling somewhere in between The Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, and Flatfoot 56." ~Josh Hedlund, IndieVisionMusic "Mother/Daughter vocals are exquisite, offering silky goodness to the listening ear." ~Sing Out Magazine thehollands.org J Lind My real, legal name is J—yes, just the letter, no period. (There’s a story there...) I grew up in Arizona and studied philosophy at Princeton. My first EP, I Don’t Know (2017), was tracked in Nashville and toured in the pubs of Oxford, England. I currently live in Tennessee, where I’m working on a concept album inspired by reflections from hospice. My songwriting is grounded in true stories and old ideas, few of which are my own. So if you find something meaningful in my music, I’d love to hear about it. I love a good story… jlindmusic.com If you aren't familiar with the garden here's a few tips: -The garden is free & open to the public. Tips are welcome and encouraged.
