British born artist Hollie Cook will be bringing her lovers rock infused pop to North America this fall in continued support of her highly acclaimed album “Twice”.

Released earlier this year, her impressive 9-track record soon caught the attention of music fans in the U.S -- captured and intrigued by her unique twist of “tropical pop" -- folks soon beckoned the talented young artist to bring her sound stateside. Authentic reggae, infused with classic 70’s soul, the “Sade by way of Kingston” (Boston Globe) has already successfully cemented her status as a principle figure in the UK reggae scene and has big plans for the U.S this fall.

Kicking things off in Brooklyn's Glasslands on October 13th, Hollie and her band will be touring east to west on a selective 8-day live stint where she'll be bringing her impressive album to life and will be performing tracks such as her lead single “Looking For Real Love”, title track "Twice""ARI UP" (dedicated and written about Slits lead woman of the same name) and critics favorite"Desdemona" amongst others.
 
Her current album "Twice" features an impressive array of legendary fixtures from the reggae scene, including esteemed Jamaican singer Winston Francis aka King Cool, gifted musician, vocalist, former member of The Pioneers and brother of Desmond, George Dekker, Lee "Scratch" Perry's son Omar Perry and legendary British reggae producer and musician of MatumbiDennis Bovell."Twice" was produced by British producer Mike "Prince Fatty" Pelanconi (A Tribe Called Quest, Gregory Isaacs, Brand New Heavies, Graham Coxon, Lily Allen, The Sugarhill Gang).
