The Hollows are a roots-rock ensemble of multi-instrumentalists; a freewheeling hootenanny of a band. A veritable junkyard of mandolins, banjos, guitars, accordions, horns, harmonicas, and various other musical doodads are in constant rotation, and with no frontman (or six frontmen), everyone writes and arranges material, creating a diverse and uniquely blended sound.
Their debut LP, Belong to the Land, was recorded at The Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, NY and released in August 2011. Soon after, the band was voted The Deli Magazine's "NYC Artist of the Month" and showcased in the 2011 CMJ Music Marathon. "Poor Eyes," the band's first music video, was released in February 2012 (its release party garnering a "Critic's Pick" in TimeOut NY), and the track was later featured in the soundtrack to Bob Giraldi's short film"A Poet Long Ago" (2013).
A follow-up self-titled EP was tracked at Brooklyn's Grand Street Recording and Galaxy Smith Studios and released in June 2012, landing features on Spinner, The Huffington Post, MSN, WCBS FM, Pure Volume, and MP3.com, among others. A second music video, "August," was released that July on BaebleMusic.
The Hollows showcased again in the 2012 CMJ Music Marathon and attended South by Southwest 2013 in Austin, TX. A live album, Neverending Show, was released in April 2013 and was called "a fresh breath of true musician spirit" that offered "a soulful, powerful and thick sound" and captured "everything that makes seeing The Hollows live in concert so much fun.
The band recently completed main tracking for their next full-length studio album at The Bunker in Brooklyn with John Siket (Sonic Youth, Phish, Yo La Tengo, Dave Matthews Band).
Onstage, The Hollows are a high-octane, unpredictable barn-burner. You can expect a lot of foot-stomping, over-the-top toasts to life and death, and a good bit of sweat. Put on yer dancin' shoes.
BLACK WATER CHOIR
Black Water Choir is the collective mind of Corey Hines, blending folk and alt-country styles with a dark-pop influence echoing throughout; often experimenting with raw, lo-fidelity recordings and noises to create an ambient room-scape within a song. Spending the majority of his life in western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee where the influence of mountains, weather and light have found their way into the core of the writing process, including sounds, rhythms, lyrics and overall texture, Black Water Choir is based out of Savannah, GA and is an homage to the black water rivers that meander through the low-country of the southern United States.
