Holly meets Chris Bilton in a pub in York. They start making music together and try out different instruments, like banjo, mandolin and cajon. They move in together, record some songs and print them onto a CD – Never Winter Mind EP Part One. The sound is rootsier, less produced than previous recordings and sounds ‘as live’. On here you will find Holly and Chris’ first track played on BBC Radio 2, ‘Beautiful Days’ (which attracted Steve Lamacq’s praise) and also a heart-wrenching cover of The Beatles’ ‘She’s Leaving Home’.
