Hollis Brown, today release their new album Ozone Park, via their new home at Cool Green Recordings / Mascot Label Group.
Hailing from New York, the beginnings of the quartet was born out of a garage in the Ozone Park neighbourhood of Queens on a steady diet of psychedelia and basement jams in Greenwich Village.
Adam Duritz himself asked the band to join the Counting Crows on an extensive 3 month US tour which saw them play the stunning Red Rocks Amphitheater. They have also played with Citizen Cope, Jackie Greene, Jesse Malin, Toots & The Maytals and The Zombies; one such show with the 60s icons saw them do an eventful 30 hour round trip from New York to New Orleans to play The House of Blues that resulted in a chance meeting with Allen Toussaint.
The journey has seen them pick up the attention of David Crosby, Nils Lofgren (E Street Band) and even had a brief encounter with the actor Eric Roberts in California. You would have heard their music in films such as “Bad Country,” starring Willem Dafoe and Matt Dillon and on TV series’ “Shameless,” “Kingdom” and MTV’s “Real World.” Also their music has been featured in the worldwide trailer for “The Founder” starring Michael Keaton.
