Hollier [Small Room-Downstairs]
In 2019—what feels like a decade ago—Hollier packed up the old van
and played over 50 shows spanning both coasts. Stuffed into that
E-350 was both a sound that invokes nostalgia for heartland rock
fans and an appetite for the gin-soaked, smoke-infested rock scene.
“Driven by the highways and ditches of life as he knows it.
Fueled on driving guitars and wide open emotions. Springsteen
with a tempered voice. Hollier attacks the lyrics to ‘War Cry’ as
passionately as he does on the quiet ‘Malina’”
– Tom Netherland (Bristol Herald).
After Hollier’s freshman release was featured on Spotify’s Rockin’
Vibes and All New Rock playlists and tallied a respectable 300k+
streams, “War Cry” was included on Indie Folx’s Best Rock Songs of
the Summer 2019. Since moving to Nashville, the songwriter from
central Louisiana has backed up recording artists Carly Pearce,
Cassadee Pope, and Levi Hummon as well as opened up for Shovels
and Rope, David Cook, Granger Smith, and others. Hollier plans on
releasing his first full length record in 2021.
