Holly Golightly

"Holly Golightly was born in London and named after the heroine in Truman Capote's novella Breakfast at Tiffany's. She fell under the spell of American roots music the minute she heard her first Stax single and started her musical career playing guitar and singing in punk bands like Thee Headcoatees. Golightly started recording her own albums in the mid-'90s, drawing on the American singles in her massive collection for influence. She was particularly taken with gospel, blues, and other styles of music from the American South, as evidenced by her original songs, which have a strong retro feel. In 2005, Golightly started performing as a duo with Lawyer Dave, a Texas born one-man band that plays guitar, drums, and occasionally the banjo. No Help Coming is the fourth album they've cut as a duo, with Golightly singing and Dave acting as another vocalist and backup band." [Crawdaddy]

Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs

Singer-songwriter Holly Golightly has always had a love affair with American roots music, especially rockabilly and Northwest '60s garage. She became known to many fans first in her association with Billy Childish, the female group Thee Headcoatees, and started recording around 1992, while her first solo project debuted in 1995.

Over 20 albums later, Golightly continues more recent explorations of country blues. But about one-half of Medicine County is more clearly influenced by the progeny of Cash at his blackest--Nick Cave, the Handsome Family, and the Louvin Brothers of "Knoxville Girl". It makes for a strong contribution to the creative re-interpretations of genres and their expectations, without a radical departure from them. [PopMatters]

Holly Golightly

Ms. Golightly's band on the album and an upcoming tour is the Brokeoffs--comprised of one man, the Texas singer and multi-instrumentalist known as Lawyer Dave. In addition, he is the co-owner of the Georgia farm where the two musicians write separately, then converge to hash out the final form of the songs. "There are two ways to argue with her. Neither one works," Lawyer Dave says. Lyrics are a frequent sticking point. Lawyer Dave has "a lot less shame when it comes to the English language," he says. The duo has compiled a list of words and phrases that they have agreed not to sing, including "Florida" and "make love." [Wall Street Journal]
