I hadn't been on myspace for some-time, probably longer even than I'd last been here. It is greatly improved and remains the place to find new music. Recently I've found none better than this - http://www.myspace.com/hollypartridgesongs - if Holly Partridge isn't a huge star by the time that 2011 closes then I'll eat my own socks.
Naturally she has a history, it helps. It's a story to tell when you eventually get stuck in front of interviewers. She writes great songs and seems to perform them pretty well. It's hard when you hear something like this not to get immediately excited and share it with everyone, perhaps it's too early - they're still considering their options with regard to record labels, as well they might.
Real talent is rare, Holly has it.
