Hollis Brown is an American Rock ‘n’ Roll band. Named after a Bob Dylan song (“The Ballad of Hollis Brown”), the band was formed by Queens-natives and songwriters Mike Montali (lead vocals/guitar) and Jonathan Bonilla (lead guitar). Both 2nd-generation immigrants (Italian-American and Puerto Rican-American, respectively), they soon found their musical brethren across America, recruiting Andrew Zehnal (drums) from Cleveland, and Adam Bock (keyboard/vocals) from St. Louis.
Hollis Brown’s latest single “Run Right To You” was released on 7” vinyl in October 2016 on Velvet Elk/One Little Indian records. Their song “Steady Ground” is a featured exclusive on
Amazon’s playlist Amazon Acoustics. The band’s vinyl EP, Cluster of Pearls (Alive Naturalsound Records), was chosen as one of the 300 select releases throughout the world for Record Store Day 2016. Pressed on Starburst Vinyl, the record is limited to 800 copies and features four previously unreleased tracks and two songs released on vinyl for the first time. It was released digitally on iTunes in August 2016. Cluster of Pearls follows up the 2015 release of Hollis Brown’s third album 3 Shots (Jullian Records/RED), featuring the Bo Diddley collaboration “Rain Dance,” and the duet “Highway 1” with acclaimed alt-country songstress Nikki Lane.
The independent act has achieved a significant amount of success since their formation in 2009. They released their debut album Ride On The Train on Alive Naturalsound in 2013
(produced by Adam Landry), garnering song and video premieres from Rolling Stone, Paste, and American Songwriter, along with music placements in the worldwide trailer for the Michael Keaton film “The Founder,” the Willem Dafoe/Matt Dillon film “Bad Country,” Direct TV’s “Kingdom”; Showtime’s “Shameless,” MTV’s “Real World,” and an online ad campaign for Abercrombie & Fitch.
Following a Lou Reed tribute concert in NYC, Alive Naturalsound asked the band to record a tribute to the Velvet Underground’s classic album Loaded, as a limited-edition vinyl release for Record Store Day 2014. Hollis Brown Gets Loaded took on a life of its own, with airplay on influential radio stations, resulting in a full CD & digital release.
The band has toured extensively in America and Europe, headlining and supporting such bands as The Counting Crows, Citizen Cope, The Zombies, Jackie Greene, Heartless Bastards, Rich Robinson of Black Crowes, and Jesse Malin, and building an impressive fan base on both continents.
Mascot Label Group has announced the signing of Hollis Brown to a global recording agreement with Cool Green Records. Their next album will be released in spring of 2019.
Lizzie & The Makers
Lizzie & the Makers are one of one of New York’s most distinctive, exhilarating bands. They jam, but they keep their solos short and spot-on, usually two or maybe three bars at the most. Their inspirations are classic Chicago blues and southern soul, but they also have a psychedelic side: they’re closer to Robert Cray – with a charismatic woman out in front of the band – or Led Zep than, say, Amy Winehouse. Intense frontwoman Lizzie Edwards might not only be the best blue-eyed soul singer in New York: she might be the best blue-eyed soul singer anywhere.” – NY Music Daily
With influences ranging from Kate Bush and Ann Peebles to Lynyrd Skynyrd and Pink Floyd, Lizzie Edwards has been a guest at many NYC all-star jams, sharing the stage with the likes of James Carter, Syd Straw, Ted Leo and Reeves Gabrels. On lead guitar, Greg McMullen describes his music style as "sonic deconstruction on electric/acoustic/resophonic/lap/pedal steel/bass guitars, and other devices..." Trying to bridge the gap between Arto Lindsay and Joe Walsh, Greg has played with Chris Whitley, Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie/The Cure), Meshell Ndegeocello, Trixie Whitley, Twilight Singers, Bonsai, Bentmen, Matt White, Speedbuggy USA, and the Glenn Branca Ensemble. Lizzie and the Makers has rocked up and down the East Coast, taken the West Coast by storm, and found a new musical family in Texas, after blowing the roof of their SXSW showcases in Austin. Dark and soulful lead vocals and lyrics by Lizzie and innovative arrangements by Greg combine the blues, rock and psychedelic soul of musicians like Freddie King, Sharon Jones and Led Zeppelin.
