HOOPS

Duo

Holly Hoogvliet & Paul Shipman are HOOPS. Both sublime performers in their own rights, yet Paul & Holly combined is the kind of sound that seems pre-ordained. Subtle acoustic guitar melds with rich piano keys while two voices weave their melodies above.

Delicate & lush with a solid beating heart, their music is swoon inducing romance built on heartbreaks and sunlight.

They bring depth and beauty to any event with their sophisticated sound and are the perfect option for Wedding Ceremonies, Canapes and cocktails.

PAUL SHIPMAN

Acoustic

Paul, raised in Scotland on a diet of Van Morrison, Stevie Wonder and Dylan, has been surrounded by music almost since birth.

From bar-room to festival stage Paul’s dedication as a performer and technician has allowed him to work with international artists such as Angus and Julia Stone, Neil Finn, Fat Freddy's Drop, Black Seeds and Fly My Pretties. At the same time he has curated a repertoire of acoustic versions of soul, indie, folk and rock songs whilst developing his own original music. His sound goes from whisper quiet solo act, to enigmatic rock and roll frontman.
