Album releases charting No. 2 on iTunes pop albums & top 10 overall albums' charts
On Friday, Gotee Records' Hollyn releases her first full-length album, "One-Way Conversations." The album has hit No. 2 on the iTunes pop albums chart (just under Lady Gaga) and top 10 overall. It will be releasing physically to retail on March 3. Click here to listen to the album.
"One-Way Conversations" is the follow-up to Hollyn's acclaimed debut self-titled EP, which produced the No. 1 single "Alone (feat. TRU)." The release already touts a No. 1 radio single with the track "Love with Your Life." Hollyn received her fourth No. 1 single this week as a featured artist on Derek Minor's "Change the World." In addition, the music video for "Party in the Hills" featuring Steven Malcolm and Andy Mineo, which is also on her album, debuted this week. Watch the video below.
Also this week, Hollyn hit the road on one of this year's top tours - the TobyMac "Hits Deep" Tour. The tour will run through April 9, hitting major markets. Hollyn and TobyMac visit Rochester on March 11.
This 20-year-old Ohio native has had a whirlwind start since the release of her debut EP. She began her career with a rigorous 40-plus date nationwide tour, followed by a handful of shows overseas supporting her mentor, producer and Gotee Records' label head TobyMac. She spent last summer on her first-ever solo run on the West Coast while working and processing the direction for her first full-length album.
With co-writers/producers Bryan Fowler, Dave Lubben, Wit & 42 North, Cole Walowac of Capital Kings and Toby McKeehan helping bring her thoughts to life, these 10 songs culminate into an earnest snapshot of Hollyn being herself: a young woman working out life with God, relationships, artistry and career.
Raised in the church and on the music greats from Lecrae to southern gospel, this "American Idol" alum has been working the past two years on her national debut.
Hollyn has a style all her own. Listeners were introduced to this vibrant young lady on TobyMac's songs "Lights Shine Bright" and "Backseat Driver," which she is also a co-writer.
Hollyn's music has combined for 42 million streams on Spotify, Pandora and YouTube since the release of her self-titled debut in 2015. Her first radio single made radio chart history with 95 percent of the hot AC/CHR panel adding the single out of the box. It spent nine weeks at No. 1. Hollyn has two No. 1 hot AC/CHR singles plus two No. 1s as a featured artist on TobyMac's "Backseat Driver" and Minor's "Change the World."
