There is an intelligence and sophistication to Holly Cole's singing that sets her apart. She can imbue well-worn standards and eclectic songs with an uncanny combination of sensuality, innocence, and originality. Cole has a long and storied international career, having sold hundreds of thousands of recordings in the U.S., Japan and Germany. These echo her success at home, including multi-platinum awards, three Junos and two Gemini Awards.
Her eagerly awaited new album, NIGHT, contains poetic odes to the singer's love of the evening. As a self declared night owl, perfectly at home in the time between dusk and dawn, Holly claims this trait to be central to her personal and artistic life. And as usual when it comes to the iconic Canadian songstress, it's an album that features a stylistically diverse and emotionally stirring collection of songs. It stands as a love letter to the night and its power, a celebration of the hours where daylight's chatter has disappeared and turned into peaceful moments of creative possibility.
There are musical secrets to be discovered on this album as well as many layers of meaning. "Subtext is my best friend", she remarks when asked personally, at the same time indicating that her personal creative journey continues to unfold.
