St. Petersburg, Fla. (Sept. 22, 2015) – With eclectic influences, stellar harmonies and multi-instrumental skills that belie their ages, New Hollow — Mookie Clouse, 21, Evan West, 21, and Chad Blashford, 19 — are rock ‘n’ roll obsessives who know more about old-school bands and equipment than many musicians twice their age. The band makes its Tampa Bay live debut Sunday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. at The Palladium Theater, 253 5th Ave. N., part of our Mahaffey on the Move series.
Their first three singles, the independently-released “Sick,” “Boyfriend” and “Airplanes,” all climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Physical CD Singles Sales Chart. Their song “She Ain’t You” scored the teen trio a “Breakthrough Song Of 2013″ by Sirius XM’s The Pulse, and was The Pulse’s No. 18 song of the year, while Billboard cited them as one of its “Bands To Watch.”
Their most recent release, “Why Don’t You Love Me,” is currently at No. 7 and rising on The Pulse. New Hollow is currently in the studio recording with British producer Mikal Blue (OneRepublic, Colbie Caillat, Jason Mraz, Five For Fighting) for Bee & El/Sony Music Entertainment.
Fans can expect “Tons of really high energy songs, and also soft ballad songs to balance out the album,” Clouse told Timeforkids.com. “It’s all really about relationships and emotions,” added Blashford.
