Holland grew up in a music-filled, Norwegian-Italian household in Westchester County, New York, and studied drama at New York University. She worked as a performer and lyricist in her early career and then forged a steady songwriting collaboration with composer Gary William Friedman, whom she eventually married.
Their collaboration has led to several internationally acclaimed jazz vocal albums, an array of songwriting projects including a theme song for the Rock n’ Roll Hall-of-Famer/radio talk show host Joey Reynolds, which was played nightly on his national WOR Radio program, commercials and documentaries, and a variety of musical theater projects.
Her current musical theater projects include Merton of the Movies and a new adaptation of the musical Platinum.
