Alternative rock/folk artist Holly Lovell will perform in the University of Wyoming Summer Programs concert series Wednesday, June 28, from 11:45 a.m.-1 p.m. on Simpson Plaza. The event is free and open to the public, and food will be available for purchase.
Lovell, born in Colorado, raised in Australia and now based in Denver, grew up under the lyrical influences of Adam Duritz, Patty Griffin and Johnny Cash. She naturally began her journey in folk music, releasing two EPs under the production of Ben Wysocki of The Fray, and captivated some of Denver’s largest stages alongside national acts with her spirited, honest sound.
As Lovell grew as an artist, so did her band. Joined by her brother, Caleb, and longtime friend and collaborator Seth Davies, she quickly began to write in a new direction. The vehicle of the band drove the songs to become more personal and hard hitting. In 2015, she retreated to the mountain town of Ridgway, Colo., with producer Joe Richmond to write and record her third EP.
The result was sound changing. Lovell traded her acoustic guitar for an electric guitar, and the band, together, forged a new direction, transforming a once solo songstress into a Ryan Adams meets Kings of Leon indie folk-rock band.
