Biography of Miss Holly

Miss Holly was born and raised in a musical family. She began her piano training at 4 years of age. In 2000, she graduated from Ottawa’s Canterbury High School for the Arts. Her four year program included studies in musical theater, gospel, jazz, opera, choral singing and other areas of musical training. In her final year, she performed extensively in Europe.
Her debut as a singer began in 1989 when she joined the Greely Players Musical Theater Company, Greely, Ontario.
Over the last 20 years she has appeared onstage in 18 productions and was the vocal director for two shows with the theater.
In 2001 Holly successfully competed in the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. At finals in Calgary, Alberta, she was awarded the opportunity to travel to Nashville, Tennessee where she recorded her first single How About You.
As her musical horizons expanded, Miss Holly emerged on the live band circuit in 2005; she joined the Ottawa based reggae band, The Roots Band, as a keyboardist and backup vocalist. Currently, Miss Holly is the band’s lead vocalist/keyboard player and performs extensively in many venues in Ontario and Quebec.
Miss Holly has performed at the Ottawa Reggae Festival many times. In 2008, she opened for Maxi Priest, Snow and Collie Buddz and also with Shaggy in 2010 at the same venue with Ras Lee and the Roots Band.

At other locations, Miss Holly has been the opening act for many reputable performers that include Trilla U, Ritchie Stevens, Copper Cat, Singing Melody, George Nooks, Anthony Cruz and, on several occasions, for Montreal’s reggae artist, Mello G. She is a regular performer at The House of Reggae in Montreal.

In February 2011, Miss Holly will release her second single, No Woman No Cry, and is currently working on other recording projects.

Lyrics

No Woman No Cry

Written By: Bob Marley

I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trench town
observing the hypocrites
As they would mingle with the good people we meet
Good friends we have had, oh good friends we've lost along the way
In this bright future you can't forget your past
So dry your tears I say

No woman, no cry
No woman, no cry
Oh my Little sister, don't she'd no tears
No woman, no cry

Said, said, said I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trench town
And then Georgie would make the fire light
Log wood burnin' through the night
Then we would cook corn meal porridge
Of which I'll share with you

My feet is my only carriage
So I've got to push on through
But while I'm gone...

Everything's gonna be alright
Evrything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright

No woman, no cry
No, no woman, no woman, no cry
Oh, little sister, don't she'd no tears
No woman, no cry

No woman, no woman, no woman, no cry
No woman, no cry
Oh, my little darlyn no she'd no tears
No woman, no cry, yeah
any sister no she'd no tears, no women no cry

No woman no cry, no woman no cry
No woman no cry, no woman no cry

Say, say, said I remember when we used to sit
In a government yard in Trench town
observing the hypocrites
As the would mingle with the good people we meet
Good friends we have, oh, good friends we've lost
Along the way
In this great future,
You can't forget your past
So dry your tears, I say

No woman no cry, no woman no cry
Little darling, don't she'd no tears, no woman no cry
Say, say, said I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trench town
And then Georgie would make the fire light
As it was, love would burn on through the night
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge
Of which I'll share with you
My fear is my only courage
So I've got to push on through
Oh, while I'm gone

Everything 's gonna be alright, everything 's gonna be alright
Everything 's gonna be alright, everything 's gonna be alright
Everything 's gonna be alright, everything 's gonna be alright
Everything 's gonna be alright, everything 's gonna be alright
So woman no cry, no, no woman no cry
Oh, my little sister
Don't she'd no tears
No woman no cry
I remember when we use to sit
In the government yard in Trench town
And then Georgie would make the fire lights
As it was, log would burnin' through the nights
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge
Of which I'll share with you
My fear is my only courage
So I've got to push on through
Oh, while I'm gone
No woman no cry, no, no woman no cry
Oh, my little darlin'
Don't she'd no tears
No woman no cry, No woman no cry

Oh my Little darlin', don't she'd no tears
No woman no cry
Little sister, don't she'd no tears
No woman no cry

I love you

Written By: Words by Deek Watson

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I'll give you my heart

I love you and you alone were meant for me
Please give your loving heart to me
And say we'll never part

I think of you every morning
Dream of you every night
Darling, I'm never lonely
Whenever you are in sight

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I've given you my heart

Your lady

Written By: Miss Holly( Holly Villeneuve)

There ain't no if's no but's no maybe's
I was born to be your lady

I don't know how this started
No i really don't know why
All I know is if I lost you my heart would not survive

You only said one word and smiled at me
One word and smiled at me
But there was something in that one word
that set my spirit free

There ain't no if's no but's no maybe's
I was born to be your lady

There was something in the way you spoke my name
the way you spoke my name
And i knew right from that moment
that life would never be the same

There ain't no if's no but's no maybe's
I was born to be your lady

I love you my baby I love you oh yes I do
There has never been another man to who I have ever been so true
my heart belongs to you

There ain't no if's no but's no maybe's
I was born to be your lady
