HOLLY HEBE & JACK BURMESITER
Holly Hebe is a 21 year old music producer/ singer songwriter from the Mornington Peninsula, whose love for piano and poetry allows her to pen beautifully personal and enchanting stories that combine elements of jazz, soft rock and indie pop. After a successful 2022 where Holly released her debut EP ‘party mix’, supported the likes of Alfie Templeman, Leisure, Caravana Sun and Death by Denim at their respective Melbourne shows, Holly has started 2023 off with the success of her debut tour, with shows all along the east coast of Australia. Joined by Jack Burmesiter on the saxophone, Holly’s duo set is jazzy, heartfelt and unique.
