Video: Hollie Rogers “City of Colour”

Hollie Rogers has a stunning voice and it’s used to full effect on her latest single, ‘City of Colour’.  It’s powerful and emotional.  Having performed at various festivals, including Glastonbury, Black Deer and Isle of White, she’s building a great reputation founded on those soaring vocals.  Nick Mason (Pink Floyd) has described her as: “Reminiscent of Carole King and Joni Mitchell. Amazing voice.”Rogers says of the song: “City Of Colour was written for The Coffee Music Project Competition, a charity music event in conjunction with the London Coffee Festival, in which finalists had to write a song about London. Having just left my full-time teaching job and moved to the city to pursue a career in music, I was not short of inspiration. I had put off the move for years because it felt too daunting – so when I finally did it, it was a bit of a leap of faith and the city was both a scary new place and an exciting new realm of opportunity. City of Colour reflects everything I saw on my first walk along the Southbank.”  With the support of The English Folk Expo’s Artist Mentorship Programme, Rogers will release a series of singles in 2020, with a full album to follow later in the year.  One to watch.
