Thursday, November 29th: HOLLIE COOK

Hollie Cook is London based vocalist and keyboardist of paternal English and maternal West Indian descent.

Cook certainly has the genes for a career in music -- her father Paul Cook was the drummer for the Sex Pistols, while her mother Jeni Cook was a backing vocalist for Culture Club. (If that's not enough, Boy George is her Godfather.)

Hollie Cook was a part of the last line-up of all-female punk/reggae band The Slits and toured with The Stone Roses as their opening act for their 2012 Reunion tour.

She calls her music "tropical pop”, and has a passion for reggae and female RockSteady and Reggae singers combined with classic 1960s girl groups.

Her latest album Vessel of Love was released in January of 2018 on Merge Records reaching #1 on the Billboard Reggae charts.  She just released her newest single “Sweet Like Chocolate”.
