Background

Established in 1962 in NY - Founded by the late Libby Holman, who was a singer and stage actress. She made her Broadway debut in 1925 in the short-lived "The Sapphire Ring." Her break came in 1929 when she appeared in the Broadway review "The Little Show," where she sang the blues song "Moanin' Low," which became her signature song. In 1930, Holman introduced the Dietz and Schwartz standard "Something to Remember You By" in the show "Three's a Crowd." Some of her other Broadway shows include "The Garrick Gaieties," "Revenge with Music," "You Never Know" (with a score by Cole Porter), and the self-produced one-woman revue "Blues, Ballads and Sin-Songs."
