Los Angeles-based Holly Pyle is a compulsively detail-oriented vocalist and songwriter. Her career in music thus far is marked by innovative approaches to vocal loop arranging, intense vulnerability and barrier-pushing vocal melodies in her songwriting projects, with a voice that sounds like "The smooth richness of Billie Holiday mixed with beautiful fluttering tones of Merrill Garbus" (Phoenix New Times). Holly regularly sings jazz across the West Coast and also participates in a folk rock group called Live from Laurel Canyon that travels all over the country. Most recently Holly has created a large quantity of music-inspired abstract pen art and completed a new original solo alternative pop record under the name Elyp, slated for release in November of this year.
Every day of the week in the evenings, and often multiple times per day on weekends, The 1905 plays host to the exquisite jazz community that Portland has to offer. In addition to keeping a finger on the pulse of the local scene, The 1905 has hosted internationally recognized musicians such as 5 time Grammy award-winner Antonio Sanchez, and Jazz greats like Ralph Peterson Jr.
