Born in the Bay Area with roots in Seattle, Hollis is a singer and songwriter based in Los Angeles. The lead singer of Seattle trio The Flavr Blue, Hollis released her solo EP half-life in February 2020. She most recently released “Grace Lee,” a song honoring Chinese-American activist and philosopher Grace Lee Boggs, and she’s currently at work on her debut solo LP to be released in Fall 2021.

Curated by Hollis, mixed by DJ Hauskaat, and shared to close out KEXP's PRIDE 2021 focused weekend programming, Hollis calls her mix 'FEMME FWD.' She says, "It's a a collection of women + non-binary artists, songwriters and producers from Seattle to the far beyond. Happy Pride, down with the patriarchy, let’s vibe!"

A magnetic exploration of all the varying shades of R&B and R&B-tinted pop, hip-hop, and electronic-pop styles, Hollis' mix stitches together nearly 40 songs in less than an hour and beautifully spotlights both big-time pop artists alongside thrilling emerging underground acts.
