Name: Ashes Holland.

Age: Four years.

Hometown: Originally from Tangiteroria, currently living in Auckland.

Sounds like: A musical entity with a confused identity.

Musical Guilty Pleasure: Baby metal.

Formative Musical Experience: Seeds are constantly planted and you're never sure exactly how they'll grow. I believe my formative musical experiences are the ones I am not conscious of. There may be a consistent theme that flows between these experiences, deeply rooting themselves in my thinking and subsequent creative processes over time. The impactive experiences I am conscious of are just illusions, they're superficial.
