Holly’s new CD, Big Love, now available on ITunes.
Holly’s 2012 release of Red Dirt Soul, garnered enthusiastic praise for her songwriting and performance.
“OUTSTANDING!!! Lucinda Williams meets Janis Joplin–Holly Renee Allen is a fiery, country/blues siren. And she smokes and smolders through her new album, Red Dirt Soul. Sounding like a southern fried Susan Tedeschi, Holly moves effortlessly between country, blues and gospel like Bonnie Raitt in her prime.”
Family Reunion Country
“She’s a natural! Raw edge with a southern soul. She can turn a phrase with the best of them.”
“Charlottesville gal, Holly Renee Allen is kicking it good with her new Red Dirt Soul CD. A soulful blend of flavors from the likes of Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Bonnie Raitt–Yes, Holly Renee Allen’s got soul, and plenty of it!”
Greg Tutwiler, Americana Rhythm
“Holly Renee Allen has a refreshingly authentic and distinctive Americana sound — the kind that really stands out in the music scene; the kind that, when you hear it for the first time, you can’t help asking the person next to you, “WHO is that?”
