Working with Holly has been a real joy and life changing experience. She is a total pro with a wonderful spirit. Her vocals on my song "Runaway Girl" exceeded expectations. Joining her band Parallels on tour and collaborating on the soundtrack for the feature film "Proximity" was nothing less than inspiring!
