Hollie Smith

Hollie Smith was just 16 when she won the Best Female Vocalist prize at the 1999 National Jazz Festival. 2006 album Long Player firmly established the dusky-voiced chanteuse as New Zealand's first lady of soul and saw her signed by the internationally-famed Manhattan Records. Her  vocals memorably soared on the Don McGlashan-penned hit 'Bathe in the River', from movie No.2. At the 2007 NZ Music Awards, Smith collected Best Female Solo Artist, and Breakthrough Artist.
