Holly Pyle @ Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort and Spa

Holly Pyle (Standards) 

Phoenix native Holly Pyle is buzzing the valley and other corners of the US with her latest concoction of disparate music influences. Known as an intuitive vocalist with an ability to inhabit nearly any style of music, Holly started out as an opera major at Northern Arizona University, quickly shifting to complete studies in jazz and psychology. Since diving into a full-time music career in late 2014, Holly has cultivated her own progressive soul-pop sound, releasing two albums and giving over 1000 performances, both locally and throughout the US. In addition to moonlighting with several acts from hip-hop to country to jazz, Holly frequently performs as a solo a-cappella act using electronic looping to sample and recombine her voice into an ever-changing choir of Hollys. Her original psych-soul project House of Stairs released a full-length album in Fall of 2018. She will be fronting a power house jazz ensemble performing familiar and original material.
