Brooklyn-based vocalist, composer and performance artist Holland Andrews uses voice, clarinet and electronics to construct soundscapes that fuse their love of opera, theater and jazz. With an abstract, distorted and completely unique vocal style, Andrews draws upon themes of vulnerability, healing and the disintegration of language. Having previously released music under their Like A Villain moniker, their recent EP ‘Wordless’ offers deeply-layered catharsis through an array of arpeggiated and glitched-out electronics, vocal and clarinet driven compositions, and comes as their first release under their own name. In the past they have collaborated with artists such as Christina Vantzou, Peter Broderick and Methods Body. In addition to creating solo work, Andrews develops and performs the soundscapes for dance, theater, and film, and whose work is still toured nationally and internationally.
