American Idol 11 alum, Hollie Cavanagh spent the holidays in her hometown, Liverpool, England, where she recently told the Liverpool Echo that she plans to move to Los Angeles to record an album.
Hollie explains how she got on the path to recording her first album. “I contacted Nathan Porter who worked on the show at the time and asked if there was anybody he knew that I could write with.”
“It’s all about finding the right song,” the singer explains, “I’m working on writing my own songs and I’m trying to put my own stamp on it.”
Hollie, who has been living with her family in McKinney, Texas for the past 10 years reveals why she plans to move west, “There’s not a lot to do where I am.” she says, “But in LA there are labels and writers I can work with so I’m excited about moving.”
On what kind of album she’ll make, Hollie tells the Echo, “It’s going to be a pop album but I’ve always loved Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston and those big diva ballad songs. Those ballads don’t sell as much as they did when they made them so I want to do pop songs. But there will still be ballads on there as well.”
She hopes a record label will pick up the album when it is finished in 2013.
