Holly Macve released her debut album Golden Eagle in early March. Filled with beautiful, dusty ballads, the record is a surprisingly resonant piece of Americana from an Irish-born and English-bred singer. During SXSW in Austin, she joined us at our house and performed her song “Heartbreak Blues.” Perched atop a hammock in the shade during the height of the Texas sun, Macve pulled off a stunning vocal performance that channeled the best of Hank Williams and Gillian Welch.
