Holly Penfield, a luminary on the London jazz cabaret scene for over 15 years, is a native of San Francisco. She returns to Feinstein's at the Nikko with her all-new show, Fragile Human Monster. In this weird, whimsical evening, Penfield will perform a collection of original rock songs with a gypsy jazz influence as well as gut-wrenching ballads written from the bottom of her tangled heart.
Penfield lived in Los Angeles and studied with the legendary vocal teacher Judy Davis (who coached Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra ,and Sammy Davis Jr.) before being lured away by the mystique and adventure of London. She appeared at Cafe de Paris, Beach Blanket Babylon, Pizza Express, China Jazz, and Scott's on Mount Street — where she was (like Sally Bowles) the toast of Mayfair!
