Nominated for Best Regional Act at the 2020 Music Victoria Awards, Ballarat’s Freya Josephine Hollick has been labeled by Double J as one of 5 acts leading the new country music renaissance. 

Thanks to a significant grant from Creative Victoria, Freya traveled to California to record her third album in 2019 with Lucinda Williams’ renowned band Buick 6 and guitarist Greg Leisz (known for his work with Beck, Eric Clapton, Aaron Neville, Sheryl Crow among many others).

Arriving in Joshua Tree, Hollick, Thomas Brooks, and Shane Reilly (Feral Fusion) met with Buick 6 in the desert at famed studio Rancho De La Luna, run by Eagles of Death Metal guitarist, Dave Catching.

Here they recorded Hollick’s upcoming full-length album, a record saturated in the sounds of desert rock and cosmic country, inspired by the likes of Ann Peebles, Allen Toussaint, and Gene Clark.

The third single from her forthcoming record is due for release in the coming months.
