The summer of 2011 welcomes the self titled debut album by Hollie Cook, released 6th June on Mr Bongo Recordings. Hollie's self-coined 'Tropical pop' sound stems from her passion for reggae singers Janet Kay and Phyllis Dillon combined with classic 60s girl groups. The album is produced by friend and collaborator Mike Pelanconi, better known as Prince Fatty. Debut single That Very Night is currently making waves across radio, with Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio 2/6 Music), Rob Da Bank (Radio 1), John Kennedy (XFM) and David Rodigan (Kiss) among her many supporters.

The talents of Omar, Dennis Bovell, George Decker of The Pioneers, Style Scott and Horseman also feature across the album.
