Edison Theater hosts Grammy-nominated Hollis, Friday

Grammy-nominated performer Hollis will perform Friday, at the Edison Theater, as Intertrend, the Long Beach-based multicultural creative agency, kicks off another series of live events at the refurbished downtown venue.

Hollis is an LA-based singer-songwriter perhaps best known for her work on “White Walls” with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Hollis was nominated for the 2014 Grammy Awards for songwriting and vocals on Macklemore and Lewis’ album, “The Heist.” She is also a solo performer who just released the single, “All My Weight.”

After the performance, Hollis will join in a discussion with Pau Hana of the Pau Hana Sessions, a Hawaii-based collective that hosts events that many times focus on issues of immigration and inequality. Later, the discussion will be opened up for questions from the audience.

In the recent past, the Edison has been the site of such well-received events as KCRW Press Play and The Art of Bloom, an immersive pop-up exhibit that used flowers, blossoms, ambient sounds and multi-sensory artwork to magnify how humans project meaning onto the ubiquitous plants.

It also makes for great video:

Hollis performs Friday, at 7 p.m. at the Edison Theatre located at 213 E. Broadway. For more information or tickets, click here.
