Holly Golightly and The Brokeoffs
Holly Golightly and The Brokeoffs
Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs is the Georgia, USA duo of Holly Golightly Smith (aka Holly Golightly) & David Drake (aka Lawyer Dave). They released their album No Help Coming(2011), on Transdreamer, with a USA tour beginning shortly after.

Holly & Dave met in a China Town smuggler's den basement. Golightly was seeking an upright bass player, to do a small USA tour & Lawyer was the only one she found. After a half hour run-through, they were off the next day. You might could say that this was the beginning of their collaboration as the idea of doing records together was first conceived on those long drives in the American West. After nearly ten years, seven-hundred-thousand miles, countless shows and other misadventures, the time finally came.

In January of 2007 they built a make-shift studio, in the Southern English countryside, to record what they had talked about. With only four days to write, record & mix, the pair couldn't have been happier with the result. Supposed to be a low key release, You Can't Buy A Gun When You're Crying (Damaged Goods), attention snowballed enough fill a year's touring.

The second album by Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs was recorded in Northern Spain during a break whilst touring their first album. Released in October 2008 & titled Dirt Don't Hurt(Damaged Goods in UK / EU & Transdreamer in North America).

Emily Easterly
“With a mix of D.I.Y. attitude, guitar proficiency, and songwriting skills modeled after Cat Power and Exile in Guyville-era Liz Phair, Emily Easterly made her debut in 2001 with the self-released Assembling Emily. Featuring collaborations with several of Easterly’s hometown heroes (including Sparklehorse’s Alan Weatherhead and Cracker guitarist Johnny Hickman), the record was issued during the songwriter’s final weeks of high school in Richmond, VA. The following months saw Easterly relocating several hours south to study music at the University of Miami, where she released Cole in 2002 and garnered support from college radio. Seasons Never Change followed in 2005, boasting an intimate, stripped-down sound that reflected upon the singer’s four-year stay in sunny Miami, and Easterly subsequently moved to Brooklyn to pursue her craft full-time. Inspired by Neil Young, the Beatles, and Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar, Heart Comma Heart arrived in late 2007. The following year, Easterly teamed up with fellow songwriter JSeger to record a split single, Please, Please Say Goodnight/City Love Is Strange, which was released on 45-rpm vinyl that fall.” -Andrew Leahey, allmusic.com

In the fall of 2009, Easterly released a new single, “The Only Two On Earth”. At the release show in New York, attendees received a handmade, limited edition copy of the single with the B side “Montreal”. With a recent move from Brooklyn, NY to Asheville, NC in 2011, Easterly has been writing, demoing new songs and learning to play the drums.

“Well-rounded to the point of perfection, sweet, slyly inventive and ultimately highly memorable.” -Richmond Times Dispatch

“The combination of voice, melody and production makes Emily Easterly one to watch.” -Amplifier Magazine
