It’s two years since CONNECTIVITY (2021) smashed into the top 40 and debuted at #1 in the UK download chart, propelling the fiercely independent GRACE PETRIE from critics’ choice to the main stages of major festivals and venues across Europe, Australia and Canada, mesmerising audiences with the ferocity of her socially urgent lyricism and the barnstorming power of her live show.  Now the songwriter is back – stronger, older and a whole lot angrier than ever before – on tour and with a new album SOMETHING BETTER, produced by Frank Turner.

Over the span of her career, Jolie Holland has knotted together a century of American song – jazz, blues, soul, rock and roll – into some stew that is impossible to categorise with any conventional critical terminology. This is her burden and her gift, to know all of these American songs of the last ten decades in her head and her heart, and to have to wrestle with their legacy.
