Three shows in NL for Hollis Brown this weekend03-05-2018
These native New Yorkers were born in the late 80s when the city was identified by its grit, passion and authenticity. The combination of an urban upbringing and throwback musical influences of traditional blues contributed heavily to the band's sound. However, contrary to most blues-influenced bands, Hollis Brown leans heavily toward melodic pop as well.
On first impression Hollis Brown sounds like a band from 40 years ago but listening closer you hear more modern influences as well. Their lyrics are expressive and poetic. Taking queues from classic pop, rock 'n roll and Americana Hollis Brown combines raw rock sensibilities with sweet melodies and heartfelt lyrics to create a rich warm sound that can fill any room. As you listen to each song of their latest album 3 Shots a story unravels. Hollis Brown is a hard-driving, road-seasoned rock 'n roll machine capable of steamrolling through amphitheaters and intimate venues alike.
