FEMALE FIRST review of HOLLIS BROWN “Ride On The Train”


Ride on the Train is the newly released album by NYC based band Hollis Brown.
by Emma Barlow

Hollis Brown is just one of those bands that I struggle to categorise into a specific genre. Their sweet melodies and heartfelt lyrics create a warm and rich sound contrasting with the bluesy rock rhythms and rock and roll elements. Hollis Brown’s songs are simple yet effective. In 2012 they released their first EP. Now they release their first full length album Ride on the Train. I think that there is a song for everyone on this album from the upbeat southern flavour of rock and roll displayed on the first track Ride on the Train to the emotive and heartfelt track If it aint me. The album is a tuneful collection of Rock, Pop, Americana and Blues.
