Name: Holland Greco
Featured track: "Boy Crazy"
City of origin: Los Angeles
Genre: Pop/ R&B
In one sentence: Holland Greco says she's influenced by equal parts "lurid young adult fiction," Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.
Why we chose her: Greco was the first non-Zappa to be signed to the musical family's record label, Zappa Records. Considering her pedigree and her pop sensibilities (and, come on, who doesn't love a ukulele!), we're putting her on the short list of shows to check out this year.
SXSW official showcase: Tuesday, March 11 at 8:00 pm at Empire Control Room
