Bursting back onto the scene in 2021 with an exquisitely addictive new single that expertly combines her empowered attitude, bold lyricism, and stunning vocals with an immaculately bright, catchy sound, Hollie Gautiér shares her latest female empowerment anthem ‘Little Men’.
Hollie is impressively candid with her songwriting. She conveys her lyrics effortlessly with a raw sense of self-awareness and a rich tone that is often compared to the likes of Jorja Smith and Amy Winehouse. BBC Introducing has been an avid supporter of Hollie, naming her last two release their ‘Track of the Day’ and premiering her track Little Men ahead of its release on 28th April.
‘Little Men’ was written based on true events. Speaking more on this, Hollie explains:
I wrote this song in complete frustration straight after getting home from a music industry networking event. I showed an A&R man my songs and he gaslit me into thinking I didn’t know who I am as an artist, or what I wanted to say in my lyrics and that I needed him or “another male mentor” to guide me so I’d have a chance of being successful in this industry. He also didn’t believe me when I told him I waitressed full time to pay for promo, music videos etc myself and said that my parents must have helped me because I wouldn’t have been able to balance everything on my own.
‘Little Men’ is an alternative pop track that empowers females and
exposes this sexist ‘little men’ mentality that is often used to make women feel inadequate in comparison. After talking to other women in the creative industry who have experienced similar conversations, I knew it was so important for this song to be released.
Hollie looks to 2021 with positive energy as it’s set to be a huge year for the singer-songwriter. She is prime to hit stages with an all-new storming set of soul-stirring songs, with her sights set on the stratosphere. With new music coming out in Summer 2021, this is a very exciting time to discover Hollie Gautiér.
