HOLLIS BROWN (Brooklyn, NY):
Born and bred in New York City, Hollis Brown embarked on a pilgrimage to Nashville to capture their authentic sound. They shacked up for two weeks in the backyard cabin/studio of producer Adam Landry (Deer Tick, Middle Brother), and found themselves. They recorded everything live, straight to analog tape. The result was a warm, vintage sound that displays the band’s explosive live energy. Their new EP, Nothing & The Famous No One, takes the listener back to that cabin to experience the raw vibe, smell the smoke, and feel alive.

“Hollis Brown makes music that sounds just as alive today as it would’ve in 1966 and will 40 years from now” – SPIN

Everything you’d expect from a band named after a Bob Dylan tune, mixing Americana and Bible Belt blues with a heavy dose of no-frills Southern rock. – American Songwriter Magazine

It’s easy to see how Hollis Brown’s sound could be as relevant years down the road as it is today. – Paste Magazine

“A terrific band… gaining recognition for their bluesy rock songs that pack a lot of soul and their intense live performances” – The Huffington Post

Their well-crafted songs are rooted in the blues and feature pop hooks that sink in and don’t let go” – CMT

Smooth Hound Smith is a foot stompin’ folk-blues duo comprised of singer/multi-instrumentalist Zack Smith and vocalist/percussionist Caitlin Doyle. They record and perform a varied and unique style of folky, garage-infused rhythm & blues.

Using primal foot percussion, complex, fuzzed-out, finger-picked guitar patterns, warbled harmonicas, distorted vocals, and tasty harmonies, they are able to create something rugged and visceral- a modern interpretation of early blues, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll music that harkens back to the traditions of hazy front porch folk songs as well as raucous back-alley juke joints.
