Holland Andrews

Holland Andrews is a vocalist, composer, and performance artist whose work explores emotionality in its many forms. Andrews focuses on the abstraction of operatic and extended-technique voice to build soundscapes encompassing both catharsis and dissonance. Frequently highlighting themes surrounding vulnerability and healing, they arrange music for voice, clarinet, and electronics.

They harness these instruments’ innate qualities of power and elegance to serve as a cohesive vessel for these themes. As a vocalist, their influences stem from a dynamic range including contemporary opera, theater, and jazz, while cultivating their own unique vocal style that integrates these influences with language disintegration and vocal distortion.
