Jolie Holland has a voice reminiscent of some of the great old blues vocalists, but the fresh approach of a 21st-century singer and songwriter. She was a founding member of the Vancouver roots band the Be Good Tanyas, and there is some of that sound in her music, an unschooled style with soul and heartache. Her latest CD is called Escondida.
