Left to Her Own Devices, This Knight in Modish Armor Is Now Singing Her Own Songs
The Manhattan-raised daughter of an anesthesiologist, Knight studied classical piano as a child and, after two years at the Boston School of Electronic Music, played keyboards and sang with an unsuccessful New York rock band. She shifted her goals after a chance meeting with ex-Blondie producer Mike Chapman in 1978 convinced her she should pursue songwriting. Knight moved to L.A. five years ago and since then has collaborated with Chapman and other writers on songs like The Warrior for Patty Smyth and Obsession for Animotion.
Given her plans to make a second Device album soon, Knight knows she must begin stockpiling her work. Recently she had to hedge when Tina Turner asked for a new song. But the stars don't seem to be holding it against her. Says Heart's Nancy Wilson, "Knowing how talented Holly is, I think it's natural that she have her own band, and we wish her the best."
