The Australian Cosmic Country Queen Freya Josephine Hollick is coming to NinchFest! Born and raised in the historic gold boom center of Ballarat in Western Victoria, Freya has mined a rich alluvial songwriting vein across 3 full-length albums including The Unceremonious Junking Of Me (2015), 2018’s Feral Fusion and most recently 2022’s The Real World. As a young child cherry picking her dad’s hip 70’s record collection, she was exposed to the cosmic sounds of outliers like Townes Van Zandt, The Band and Gene Clark, authentic storytellers with pioneering spirit. The resultant contact high imbued Freya’s spirit, solidifying her desire to deal in that same brand of raw, heartfelt writing. With a voice that demands attention, and a rapidly developing craft, Freya found her resolve and her reason. Prepare yourselves for some Friday night cosmic country!
