FILM STILL OF JOLIE HOLLAND

SPONSOR A SONG

"Jocko's Lament" LIVE
Written by Michael Hurley
Performed by Jolie Holland and Samantha Parton


JOLIE HOLLAND Musician

Jolie has been a traveler. She's made it a long way from her home in Texas, through San Francisco and Brooklyn, all along producing her own strong sweet tunes. Part of the generating energy of The Be Good Tanyas, Jolie carried on down her own path and now has five studio albums, though she and Samantha Parton still create together. Escondida, which arrived in 2004, was co-produced by Lemon DeGeorge who made sure that Jolie and Michael spent some time together. Jolie has a deep regard for American traditional music that is ever present in her own work and way of presenting herself. She has frequently brought Michael in to perform at her gigs, and speaks of him in the same breath as Lightnin' Hopkins—both as a musicians who play from the guts. We were luck-struck enough to catch the pair of Samantha and Jolie in a few duets at Jolie’s place in the spring of 2008.
