I am thrilled to be a participant on La Voix season 5 (The Voice Canada). Yesterday was the season premiere. The level of talent this season is high! For my audition, I chose to perform the 60’s classic, Tainted love. A version which honoured the original version by Gloria Jones but had it’s own unique stylings. The fact that 3/4 coaches turned for me was a blessing. But having Pierre Lapointe as a coach is a dream come true! He is an artist I hold in high regard. Lastly, I have to thank my family, friends and fans who continue to support me in all my creative endeavours. This one is bound to be crazy ride!

Ms.Holmes’ sold out Vancouver show with Desirée Dawson was the highlight of last years west coast tour. This was the first time Vancouver had shown us so much love. This year Desirée holds the title of CBC Searchlight contest winner and currently has a song in the Billboard charts listen.
You can watch my new music video on Exclaim.ca anytime you like. This video is my baby since it was the first time I had the chance to co-direct and edit my visual content. The result is a quintessentially Montreal summer vibe. I like to think this video will sustain me for a long time. It’s really something to not only hear but to see your vision come to life.Thanks to everyone who came out to our summer shows. The rest of the summer I’ll spend working on new music and projects. Stay inspired and stay woke!
I am back in Montreal for some summer shows and writing after a successful tour!

I am sharing a demo of a new song in light of Jian Ghomeshi’s sexual assault charges being dropped.The song “Askin’ for it” addresses tip-of-the-iceberg injustices that we have been experiencing since forever.My heart goes out to the women who testified in the Gohmeshi trial, to anyone who has ever put their life on the line by confronting their attacker, and all the survivors.
I am proud to announce that the music video we shot last year for my song “The Hurtin’ One” has been accepted to several International Film Festivals. The video was directed by Jess Lee and was shown at t The Women’s Film Festival in Philadelphia last weekend. It will soon make its way to Chicago and Portugal. This video could not have been made without the amazing support of my Kickstarter contributors as well as our awesome on and off set team. The video is not yet online but I hope to share it with you soon!
Excited to announce that the video for Ms.Holmes' The Hurtin' One, soft launched at The Women's Film Festival in Philly…
After 8 amazing years, and an immense amount of support from the people and the city of Montreal, I wanted to have a thank you concert – a Montreal loft concert. The goal was to invite people to a $5 show in a unique and intimate environment. My fans who supported the Kickstarter campaign from last year had free access. I took a few chances with this concert, which was originally scheduled for last November. That concert took place this past Friday, March 11th. It took place in a loft space in Montreal’s well-loved neighborhood, The Mile End. That concert had one of the best audiences I have ever had the pleasure of playing for. I was saying “thank you” and the audience said it right back. It was an overwhelming feeling and a powerful reminder that taking chances truly is the key to a rich life.
2015 has been the best year of my career! I was so fortunate to have worked with so many talented artists who continue to inspire me. Ive also had so much support from fans and family members. Here’s a quick look at my year in review. Thank you for being a part of it
