There is an intelligence and sophistication to Holly Cole's singing that sets her apart. She takes material everyone thinks they know and discovers new undercurrents, wrapping her honesty, compassion and sardonic wit around these creations. The results are smart, sexy, provocative, sometimes dangerous and never dull.
Cole has a long and storied international career, having successfully toured and sold hundreds of thousands of recordings in the U.S, Japan (1 Gold record award) and Germany. These echo her success at home, including multi-platinum sales awards, three Junos and two Gemini Awards.
In June of 2013, on the second night of three sold out performances at the Montreal Jazz Festival, André Ménard, the Festival's Artistic Director presented Holly with the prestigious Ella Fitzgerald Award. Holly is one of only two Canadians (Diana Krall) to ever receive this honour, putting her in the company of legends like Tony Bennett, Sade, Aretha Franklin and Ella herself. Ménard states "Most of all, her playfulness and the sheer pleasure of singing to a crowd reminds me of Ella more than any past recipient." (http://nouvelles.equipespectra.ca/blogue/?p=3268&lang=en
