      Hollis Brown

      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 2 nd -
      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 &

      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.
      Their next album is slated for a 2018 release.
