biographical info

   A distinct voice and artistic style, Athena Holmes is a rising talent born in Victoria B.C. and residing in Montreal QC. Her crisp vocals with a natural tone and almost perfect pitch, are reminiscent of Corrine bailey Rae and Skye Edwards. Athena’s music infuses jazz chords and melody over folk rock progression and grooves.

Composing with guitar and voice simultaneously, the content of her original compositions cover various topics ranging from body image, addiction and the ins and out of romantic relationships. Self-described as soulful but not a soul singer, she was voted #6 best singer/songwriter in the Montreal Mirror's Best of Montreal 2010.

 

"I can tell you with certainty that there isn't a room big enough in the city for the soulful voice, music, and presence of Athena Holmes."

 - Darcy Macdonald, The Montreal Mirror 07/23/10

            

"Athena is a talented singer-songwriter that should be on more people's playlists."

-Juan Miguel Marin, Option Magazine
