All Music Guide:
New York City-based Hollis Brown (a band, not a person) play a tight, sparse, rocking version of classic rock, with songs full of melody, pop, country tinges, and an ever-present and slight feel of the blues, all of which gives the best of the songs a timeless feel. Led by the songwriting of Mike Montali (vocals and guitar) and Jon Bonilla (guitar), and with a taut rhythm section of Mike Wosczyk (bass) and Mike Graves (drums and percussion), the band released a debut EP, Nothing & the Famous No One, in 2012, and followed it with a full-length album, Ride on the Train, early in 2013. Gets Loaded, a rootsy, track-for-track re-imagining of the Velvet Underground's classic 1970 album Loaded, appeared in 2014.
