Holly Bowling melds classical piano chops with a dedicated love of the music of Phish. Her obsession with the jamband's famous rendition of "Tweezer" from their 7/31/13 Lake Tahoe show led her to transcribe this 37-minute improvisational masterpiece note-for-note and arrange it for solo piano. The process, both painstaking and fulfilling, inspired her to transform other Phish songs and well-known live jams into solo piano interpretations as well.
The dual experiences of studying classical piano since age five and attending close to 300 Phish shows since her first one in 2002 form the basis for Holly's unique arrangements of Phish songs. Her debut album Distillation of a Dream, featuring piano renditions of several notable live Phish jams along with a full disc of studio tracks, is set to be released this summer.
