Holly Macve On World Cafe

Some coffee and an open mic were all this U.K. singer needed to land a record deal. Hear the conversation and performance.
In this session, we welcome Holly Macve from the U.K. She was born in Galway, in western Ireland, but moved to Yorkshire as a child. There, she lived with her grandparents, who influenced the title of her debut record, Golden Eagle -- a nickname for her grandfather, who was a classical composer. As a young adult, Macve moved to Brighton and was working in a cafe there when she met Simon Raymonde, who signed her to his label, Bella Union, alongside Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty and Midlake.
