Holly Near has been singing for our lives for over 45 years and continues speaking and singing out about the times we live in right now! Holly sings/walks her talk as an activist!

 Having grown up singing folk, pop, jazz and musical theater she is not a traditional folk singer and much to everyone’s surprise, she does NOT play the guitar. Her lyrics can be tender, humorous and inspirational as well as biting and challenging - and all the while she keeps it personal. Gifted with a powerful voice and a love for entertaining, Holly puts on a great show reflecting on the world in which we live, the complexities of love and integrity. For more information, check out Holly's website at


TAMMY HALL is a remarkable force on keyboards. Her ability to cover a broad rage of style brings beautiful texture to the material allowing Holly to move seamlessly through folk, jazz, and theatrical interpretations of the music. When not working with Holly, she is an instructor and mentor with many non-profit arts organizations making music and theatre accessible to under-funded inner city children. Ms. Hall has traveled extensively working with Harlem Gospel Singers, The Montclair Women’s Big Band, Regina Carter, Linda Tillery, Alive, Melba More, Darlene Love, and more. 

JAN MARTINELLI has played bass with Holly since the early nineties, both on recordings and on tour. She is fiercely rhythmic as well as having a lyrical quality well suited to Holly’s repertoire. Jan is part of Wild Mango, a women’s Latin band that moves from merengue to bolero to samba to funk with rich undertones of Middle Eastern spice. When not recording or touring, she sits in with a jazz big band. Ms. Martinelli also works as Holly’s musical assistant, managing the charts and teaching the arrangements to artists who move in and out of Holly touring schedule.

Just Announced! TORI TRUJILLO joins the Trio!

She was raised on everything from Motown and Carole King to Mexican banda music and Bob Seger with a heavy influence of gospel greats like Mahalia Jackson. Tory Trujillo brings all of this and more to her expressive vocal work whether she's backing Laura Love, Holly Near or Nedra Johnson, singing her own healing compositions or performing sacred music in a ceremonial setting for thousands or in private sound healing sessions for one person.
