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.
