Nicky Holland's "debut" album - titled, uncannily, Nicky Holland - is her first, but it comes after 10 years of working on virtually everybody else's. Holland is among pop's most flexible hired hands. Tears for Fears, Lloyd Cole, Cyndi Lauper, Oleta Adams, Ryuichi Sakamoto… they've all called her in to arrange strings, or assist with a tune, or sing backing vocals, or set up orchestral parts, or play some piano. She's an all-purpose musical troubleshooter. If you're David Byrne, and you need some folk songs from the Bahamas transcribed, then Nicky Holland is your woman.
