Product Description

A terrific band produced by Deer Tick music master Adam Landry in Nashville. The Huffington Post // Hollis Brown make music that sounds just as alive today as it would ve in 1966 and will 40 years from now. Spin // Hollis Brown lead singer Mike Montali sings like a man who s been around for many more scruffy years than he actually has. Daytrotter // Rambunctious, twangy blues-rock. Time Out New York // Their well-crafted songs are rooted in the blues and feature pop hooks that sink in and don t let go. CMT // Taking queues from classic pop, rock n roll, and Americana, Hollis Brown combines raw rock sensibilities with sweet melodies and hearfelt lyrics to create a rich, warm sound that can fill any room. After releasing their debut EP in 2012, the NYC-based band is releasing Ride On The Train, a debut album full of gritty jams and soft, sweet ballads. Principal songwriters Mike Montali (vocals) and Jon Bonilla (lead guitar) grew up listening to the classics. These native New Yorkers were born in the late 80 s 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. You d be hard-pressed to find a Beatles song these boys don t know by heart, and you can hear it in the music. Classic rock with a New York state of mind, Hollis Brown is a throwback to an era when music felt fresh, songwriting was revered, and performances routinely inspired.

Format: Audio CD
A rootsrock/Americana record from a New York City band? Yes indeed. It is the 2nd album by this 4-men-band with classical rock line-up: a singer, a guitar player, a bassist, a drummer. It’s not a breaking-ground record, but it still stands firm. It’s true Americana-rock style, country-tinged with a subtle stronger rock influence. The comparison with Creedence Clearwater is easily made, but of course CCR is a different level. It helps that singer Mike Montali has a raw, tough voice. Not so characteristic as CCR’s John Fogerty or Drive-by Truckers’ Patterson Hood, but still distinctive and powerful enough.

Great thing about the record is the way it has been recorded and the sound. It’s not a polished, clean sound but more a rougher, basement sound with a sharp touch. It’s like it is shaking, rambling, rolling and tumbling. With some songs you’ll find yourself thinking isn’t it a cover from the sixties? Then you are about to discover it isn’t because it is all own material.

Title track is one the finest songs. With a touch of Doobie Brothers the rhythm guides you through the song: it’s electric guitar funded on a traditional acoustic Americana rhythm guitar together with an hing of a honky-tonk piano style . The song breathes freedom and air. It actually makes you feel like you are riding the train to discover the beautiful countryside. “Down on your luck” is a faster, pitch rambling rocker. “Doghouse Blues” reflect a southern rock flavoring that combines organ with Louisiana delta blues. “Go to work in the morning… go to bed at night… ain’t got no place to hide.” Edgy guitar sound, edgy guitar solo also is featured in this song.

The record provides various punchy, rambling rockers. The only weak thing are some of the lyrics. Some of the song lines purpose is to rhyme it with the next line. Luckilly, that’s not the case all the time. “Ride on the train” is good americana record. It is rocking, roling and rambling. That’s good. Because I like that!
