This week we thought it was finally time to introduce you all to our assistant manager, Holly. Originally from Leeds, Holly moved to Huddersfield eleven years ago after meeting her husband. Though she’s a barista through the day, art is her main passion. It’s something she’s always done as a hobby. Art was her favourite subject at school and after briefly studying it, she now does freelance work in her spare time. Check out her work over at @blackdogdesignuk. We sat down and chatted to Holly about which band has shaped her music taste the most over the years.
- Which artist has impacted you the most musically?
The Beatles, by far. I fell in love with them when I was sixteen – I was going through a whole 60’s phase. I found that my art and style was being influenced by the era.
- Do you remember how you first discovered them?
We used to sing their songs at school. It was one of those things where I knew their music without ever really realising it was them. I remember looking through my dad’s rack of CD’s and being drawn to the album ‘Beatles 1’ because I loved the cover art. It was one of the first CD’s I listened to.
