Freya Josephine Hollick
Born and raised in the historic gold boom center of Ballarat in Western Victoria, Australian Cosmic Country Queen Freya Josephine Hollick has mined a rich alluvial songwriting vein across 3 full-length albums including The Unceremonious Junking Of Me (2015), 2018’s Feral Fusion and most recently 2022’s The Real World.
As a young child cherry picking her dad’s hip 70’s record collection, Freya was exposed to the cosmic sounds of outliers like Townes Van Zandt, The Band and Gene Clark, authentic storytellers with pioneering spirit. The resultant contact high imbued Freya’s spirit, solidifying her desire to deal in that same brand of raw, heartfelt writing. With a voice that demands attention, and a rapidly developing craft, Freya found her resolve and her reason.
Freya’s most recent album The Real World, was born as a revelation in the Mojave Desert with Lucinda William’s Buick 6 in tow. It was and then shaped with her Australian band across the most treacherous time in recent human history. With it, Freya is ready to answer the call in her heart to take her music further. To America and beyond, with the most important record of her life.
ARIA chart action including a top 10 vinyl entry, a #2 on The Australian Country charts and a #1 on the AIR 100% independent chart, along with album of the week nods from 3PBS, 3RRR, ABC Country and a cover feature on the venerable Rhythms Magazine were highlights among a raft of media attention for the release.
Star turns at Dashville Skyline, Out On The Weekend and a busy upcoming festival season speak to the rise Freya has enjoyed with the release of her most accomplished work to date.
