Holly Rankin (aka Jack River) grew up in Forster NSW where she created and directed The Grow Your Own Festival. A festival with a “Growers Area” tent full of locally-sourced produce, a pop-up cinema, and of course lots of indie music acts, local and international.
Now living on the NSW South Coast, Holly and I chat in her home near the beach about songwriting, diaries, activism, politics, local matters, climate change, touring and being healthy.
Holly's debut album, Sugar Mountain (2018), peaked at No. 11, receiving ARIA Music Awards of 2018 nominations for Breakthrough Artist, Best Pop Release and Engineer of the Year. She has also been nominated for a J Award, APRA award, Live Music Award & Australian Independent Record Awards.
She is currently working on more music and is passionate about bringing politicians, scientists, young people, musicians, and activists into one conversation about energy, climate and getting us to a zero emissions future ASAP.
Holly also has her own podcast called "To Rebel in the Times" check it out on all podcast apps.
