Holly Auna started as a small town girl who grew up on a farm in Southern Indiana learning how to play her guitar around bonfires before playing hundreds of shows at venues all around the Southern Indiana/Louisville, KY area. At the age of 16 she first began making trips to Nashville, TN. Over the last 9 years, she has traveled back and forth between Nashville and New York City writing music and playing shows. At the age of 19, she signed a deal with the Disney Network where they featured her original music on the Disney Stars YouTube Channel. In the summer of 2017, she was featured on a Brazilian EDM song, "Last Man Standing" by FullMode, released under Quartzo Records. In October of 2017, Holly received her first cut as a songwriter with "There's This Boy" on country artist Tenille Arts' album "Rebel Child." The album reached #16 on the US Country iTunes Charts and reached #2 on the Canadian iTunes Charts. Holly now plays many shows in Nashville indie scene with her band, Holly Auna and The Haunted, and spends her days writing songs for other Nashville artists. On April 20, 2018 she released her first single, "Poison" featuring her bandmate and co-writer, Ryan Oetken. Ryan and Holly recorded their song "Poison." The song was recorded with both artists singing and playing guitar into one microphone in the center of the room. The song was recorded analog, straight to tape, and captures the artists' raw, original, old-school feel. Her most recent single "Witches," is a girl power indie pop song that is quickly gaining traction on Spotify playlists and indie radio.
