NYC natives Hollis Brown make music that is lush, raw and full of heart. The band recorded Nothing & The Famous No One with producer Adam Landry (Deer Tick, Middle Brother) in Nashville during the summer or 2011. Taking great care to create a warm, vintage sound, the tracks were recorded live, straight to analog tape. The songs on the new EP feature resonant guitars and gritty vocals atop a strong foundation of piano and steady percussion. A collection of soulful tunes, the four-track EP takes listeners to the Nashville cabin offering a taste of the band’s energized live show. Nothing & The Famous No One will be released digitally on April 3rd.

Hollis_Brown_Press_Photo_1aNothing & The Famous No One opens with the emotionally charged, bluesy love ballad, “Gypsy Black Cat.” “Ride On The Train” is a triumphant song of new beginnings lead by warm, crackling guitar over booming piano. The classic rock & roll track “Spoonful”, featuring guest vocals by Deer Tick’s John McCauley, premiered with SPIN.  Download the “Gypsy Black Cat” MP3 HERE and the “Spoonful MP3 HERE.
