Metronome Charleston Anniversary: Lindsay Holler
When Metronome Charleston started putting ideas together for an anniversary party, we really should have tossed everything aside and hired Charleston-based singer-songwriter Lindsay Holler as the official organizer. She’s brilliant at pulling like-minded and not-so-like-minded musicians and artists together for special events, tributes, theme shows, and holiday concerts.
Holler knows the local music scene well, and she’s too humble to take much credit for her own distinctive contributions to it over the years — most recently as a solo songwriter and as a member of such bands as the Western Polaroids, Oh Ginger, and most recently with Matadero (alongside drummer Ron Wiltrout, keyboardist Sam Sfirri, bassist George Baerreis).
At the anniversary party, Holler will sing and play guitar with the accompaniment of drummer Stuart White, plus a few guest musicians. They’ll hit the stage at 9:15 p.m. “Stu and I will be holding down the fort,” she says. “We’ll be attempting a bluegrass-y-ish version of a Billy Joel song, too.”
“I want to write, write, write for the rest of the year,” she adds. “Got any advice?”
Yes: keep doing what you’re doing, Lindsay. Your music and spirit are among the brightest lights in the Charleston music scene these days.
