It is great news for the Holliepops for the coming New Year! Hollie Cavanagh during her Holiday visit to Liverpool, England, has told the Liverpool Echo she will be moving to Los Angeles, CA to record her debut album. Hollie Cavanagh hopes a record label will pick up her album when it is finished in 2013.
“There’s not a lot to do where I am. ” explains Hollie, “But in LA there are labels and writers I can work with so I’m excited about moving. I contacted Nathan Porter who worked on the show at the time and asked if there was anybody he knew that I could write with. It’s all about finding the right song. I’m working on writing my own songs and I’m trying to put my own stamp on it.”
As for the type of album we will expect from Hollie, “It’s going to be a pop album but I’ve always loved Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston and those big diva ballad songs. Those ballads don’t sell as much as they did when they made them so I want to do pop songs. But there will still be ballads on there as well.”
Hollie’s family have always supported her in pursuing her dream, “I still can’t believe it. The fact she’s moving to LA to pursue her dream is unbelievable and lots of songwriters want to work with her.” Hollie’s mum Lorraine tells the Echo, “ I don’t know where her talent comes from. Nothing like this ever happens to our family. She doesn’t want to do anything else but sing. I just hope her dreams come true. American Idol was a big stepping stone and she’s that little bit closer to her dream. I’m so proud of her.”
