Hollis Brown was formed by Queens-natives and songwriters Mike Montali (lead vocals/guitar) and Jonathan Bonilla (lead guitar). Both first generation immigrants (Italian-American and Puerto Rican-American, respectively, they soon found their musical brethren across America, recruiting Andrew Zehnal and Chris Urriola.
The independent act has achieved a significant amount of success since their formation in 2011. 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, Their 2015 follow up 3 Shots, garnered 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,” and an online ad campaign for Abercrombie & Fitch.
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. 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 sup-porting such bands as The Counting Crows, Citizen Cope, Robert Randolph, Vintage Trouble, Cyndi Lauper and The Zombies. Building an impressive fan base on both continents.
Mascot Label Group signed the band in 2019 and released “Ozone Park” to critical acclaim. A year of constant touring for the band saw performances in 45 states, Canada, The UK and Europe.
Hollis Brown’s brand new album, In The Aftermath (Mascot Label Group/Cool Green Recordings), is the deliciously depraved outcome of an all-night rock n’ roll riot. The Queens, New York-based quintet escaped to the Poconos to record with a few handles of whiskey, and, in one 24-hour session, ran down the Stone’s seminal first al- bum of all originals, 1966’s Aftermath. Tracked live in the studio with minimal over-dubs, In The Aftermath is potent proof the five-piece group is one of the last great American rock n’ roll bands.
