Holly Conlan, Hotel Cinema, Burnt Shapes

Holly Conlan

Los Angeles native Holly Conlan has carved out a distinct niche in Hollywood's expansive music community.

A 2008 release of her Bird EP saw Holly's first national exposure, with the languid piano and soaring cellos of "Winter" and the upbeat smirk of "OK" appearing in hit shows like One Tree Hill, 90210, Drop Dead Diva, Ghost Whisperer, The Ex List, and Privileged. That Summer, "You Are Goodbye" was awarded the coveted iTunes Single of the Week spot-- its heartbreaking lyric and haunting production garnering a slew of new fans. Soon the film world took notice, and Conlan was offered a spot on the soundtrack of The Other Woman (now in theatres) starring Natalie Portman. Radio play followed in a nod from KCRW (Top Tune - "OK") and her addition to their 2009 pledge-drive giveaway package.

With the support of LA's famed Hotel Cafe, Holly has been lucky to share the stage with a number of notable performers including Sara Bareilles, Colbie Caillat, Katy Perry, Cary Brothers and Butch Walker. As part of 2008's Hotel Cafe Tour, she traded sets with the likes of Ingrid Michaelson, Meiko and Erin McCarley. Plus, her addition of "I'll be Home for Christmas" to their holiday compilation, Winter Songs, rounded out the Sony/Epic release.

2009 saw the independent release of her newest LP, Fascinator. Which was also produced by Al Sgro (Meiko, Gary Jules) and mixed by Darrel Thorp (Beck, Radiohead).

The fall of 2010 was Holly's first national tour, opening for the three time Grammy-nominated artist, Sara Bareilles, while also joining Bareilles on stage for her set throughout the tour. In early 2011 Holly joined Dutch-American songwriter Laura Jansen on tour throughout Holland as her support act. In the summer of 2011 Conlan embarked on her third tour throughout the United States and Canada, opening for Sam Bradley. She is currently in the studio finishing her newest record, The Sirens, which will be released late 2012.

Hotel Cinema

Los Angeles based duo Hotel Cinema was formed in 2012 by Mark Hadley & Keeley Bumford. The two became friends during their college years in Boston and became more than friends after they both separately moved to LA. They started writing songs with the sole intention of exploring original production without any preconceived notions or expectations, and eventually had enough material to release their self titled debut EP in January of 2013. With beautiful melodies and intricate orchestration of electronic and organic elements, Hotel Cinema has crafted a unique cinematic sound that weaves in and out of reality. Making their KCRW debut only 3 days after the release, the EP has put Hotel Cinema on the radar as an emerging artist to keep an eye on in 2013.
