Jolie Holland: New Music from Days Past

With the haunting, intimate sound of a wizened blues singer, Jolie Holland's voice seems to come from another age. At 29, the singer often draws comparisons to legends like Billie Holiday and Bessie Smith, but Holland's music –- a mix of front-porch folk and jazz -- is distinctly her own.

Following the release of her CDs Catalpa and Escondida, the Texas-born musician spent the last year touring North America and Europe. She talks about her music and performs some new songs.
