Hollie Steel Features in the Daily Star

hollie steel laughing roses Hollie Steel has featured in an article in today’s Daily Star – a UK newspaper.

In the article, Nina talks about the difficulties faced in getting Hollie the recognition she deserves after Britain’s Got Talent competition ended.

Nina told the Daily Star: “As soon as the series has finished you don’t hear a word from them ever again. The 2008 finalists – including Faryl Smith, who’s a similar artist to Hollie – did very very well from it.

“They got record deals and things like that. Hollie didn’t get anything.

“We believed Hollie’s talent was good enough to get some sort of recognition but nobody came forward.”

However, as you now, Hollie’s career has been sponsored by some astute businessmen who recognise talent when they see it, so Hollie has been able to release her single, Edelweiss, which is currently available for download, and her album, Hollie, which can be preordered from the store, and is due for release next month.

Nina currently has a six month sabbatical from her NHS job to help and promote Hollie.

Hollie Steel’s Single “Edelweiss” Out Today!

Hollie Steel Edelweiss released todayHollie Steel’s second single, Edelweiss, is released today and you can download it now from the online store. I have just downloaded both versions of the song – Edelweiss and Edelweiss (Radio Edit) – and I can’t stop listening to them. Hollie’s voice is so pure and clear, and she is beautifully accompanied on the piano.

The process of downloading the single is extremely straight forward. You don’t have to download any software – just the MP3 tracks which are high quality 192Kbits, and they can be downloaded up to three times.

Hollie Steel Sings on BBC Radio Lancashire

Hollie Steel interviewed on BBC Radio LancashireYesterday, Hollie Steel was interviewed on BBC Radio Lancashire, on the “Entertainment on a weekday lunchtime” show. It is a live show, in front of an audience, that is presented by Sally Naden at 11:00am GMT.

Hollie sang two songs, Edelweiss and Nessun Dorma, and you should be able to listen to Hollie’s singing and the interview of Hollie and Nina via BBC iPlayer. The URL is  here. Hollie sings her first song (Edelweiss)  at 15:15 and the second song (Nessun Dorma) at 43:00 min.

Note that the BBC iPlayer can be a little temperamental and you may get the message : “This content doen’t seem to be working, try again later,” when you access URL. Perhaps it is because too many people are trying to listen to Hollie! All you need to do is wait a little white, then try again. I did and it worked for me.

It is evident in the interview that Sally, who presents the programme, was blown away by Hollie’s performance. And you will be too. There is just one word for it. WOW!

These performances will only be available on the iPlayer for another five days, so don’t delay – listen today!

Hollie Steel – Single and Album News

Hollie Steel working on her new albumHollie and Nina Steel have just been in the chat room and there is loads of news to report!

First of all, the first single to be release from Hollie’s debut album is “Edelweiss”, which is currently scheduled to be released on March 29th. The single will be distributed by Universal and the record label is BB5 Records – the record label set up by Nina and Jason Steel. Incidentally, Jason wrote a bonus track on the album which I can’t wait to hear.

The album will be called “Hollie” and interestingly it won’t have Hollie’s Christmas single, “Where are You Christmas?” on it.

The music for the first single, Edelweiss, will hopefully get to the distributor this week!
