Holly Palmer

Sylvie Simmons, MOJO, December 1996

"WHEN I WAS VERY SMALL," says Holly Palmer, "my dad used to say, 'Holly, you're buzzing'. There'd be these funny noises coming from my mouth. I'm sure I was trying to make music even then. So it's been going on for quite a while. When I was seven years old I pretended I was Marie Osmond. As I grew up a bit I impersonated Sarah Vaughan."
