RADIO DEBUT: Talented Hemel busker moves to radio for the first time

A busker from Hemel Hempstead had her first ever radio performance on February 5 after she swapped the streets for a studio.

Holly Thomas, 36, who lived in Wales as a youngster, performed on Dacorum Radio where she spoke to Leslie Tate and sung some of her own original songs.

Speaking to HemelNews, Holly said: “It was my first time on the radio, so it was really exciting. I was practicing regularly beforehand to make sure I was ready for the performance.

“Music has always been very important to me to keep myself happy and give to others. I believe we all have a gift and its important to share that with others.”

Holly performed alongside pianist Chris Neale, and she’s said she’s had a lot of good feedback since the performance.

“We’ve had a lot of great feedback from friends and family, they’re all really proud of us.

“I started in music when I lived in Powys in Mid-Wales, and my Dad was always involved with the choirs, so from a young age it’s been something that I’ve naturally had in my life.

“I’m hoping I can do something similar once again in the future, but for now I definitely want to continue doing gigs, and I think that’s going well as everyone seems to want me to come back.”
