Growing up in a small town in the Midlands might thwart some from a life of passionate musical creativity, but not Hllywd. Hllywd took advantage of the musical family that surrounded him and decided to further his knowledge in music by attending Dartington College of Arts. Whilst studying music performance, Hllywd’s own raw and soulful vocal sound emerged.
The electric-fueled artist has been collaborating with various musical entities over the last decade, bridging genre and geographic gaps, including Andy Brooks (Red Tape), Argy (Recluse, Love Dose), and Marshal Jefferson (Chicago House), the pillar of Chicago house music.
