For those of you that believe rock music is dead, meet Jax Hollow.
Jax Hollow is a Revival Rock artist and Singer-Songwriter hailing from Nashville, TN. Jax has debuted on the scene with a fresh and unique blend of Rock, Blues, and Americana. Her music stands out with a refreshing pop spin on the throwback rock music explosion. Like a blend of Jimmy Page, Brandi Carlile, and Chris Stapleton, Jax Hollow is a performer that's here to stay with her incredible musical chops, heart-piercing voice, and authentic songwriting ability. She just opened for Melissa Etheridge at The Ryman as a solo looper artist on July 30th 2023.
Hollow refines the heavier, rock ‘n’ roll machismo of previous work with producer Michael Wagener (Metallica, Mötley Crü), distilling a more distinctive sound that yields progressive Southern rock and country twang, as well as expert folk balladry on her sophomore album Only the Wild Ones (Streaming Now!).
Jax Hollow has been featured on Lightning 100’s “Artist of the Week” and has opened for Melissa Etheridgeon her summer 2023 tour, as well as Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy) on her 2022 European tour.
“We predict a meteoric rise for this undeniable talent. Young songwriter Jax Hollow gave us such a reaction with her incredibly tight songwriting and virtuoso guitar playing. Her musical ability is distinct and refined but also great to jam to. It comes as no surprise that she is a Berklee grad” - Matt Simon/ Ear To The Ground Music
"Adventurous, energetic and wonderfully catchy." - Americana UK
"Nashville artist Jax Hollow is an untameable force of nature. Her new single “Wolf in Sheepskin” has echoes of Jimi Hendrix and Melissa Etheridge, plus some killer lines like 'Sunrise, waking up with my .45.'" - Beats Per Minute
"Jax is an amazing artist; her music is different and instantly identifiable." - Michael Wagener, Producer/Engineer
"Reminiscent of Cream and Jimi Hendrix, it's hard to think of contemporary acts capable of generating this much focused electricity." - Martine Ehrenclou, Rock & Blues Muse
"Jax Hollow is the rock revival artist taking Music City by storm." - Lightning 100 / Local Artist of the Month
JAX HOLLOW - ONLY THE WILD ONES
(*OUT MAY 5*)
Recorded at The Sound Emporium and Music Row’s Sienna Studios with some of Nashville’s finest musicians, Only The Wild Ones’ lineup consists of drummer Matt King (Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne), bassist Lex Price (k.d. lang, Miranda Lambert) and Tim Galloway (Joshua Hedley, Cody Johnson) on rhythm guitar and banjo. “What an incredible experience, in one of the best studios in the world. Juanita Copeland pulled me aside, telling me stories of Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ session in there, and then next thing I know she’s introducing me to Jason Isbell in the break room. I was over the moon.”
Still high on all the excitement and positive output from the sessions, Hollow took the next logical step: “I headed to the Smoky Mountains to camp out for a little while, and that’s where I landed on Only the Wild Ones,” says Hollow. “I wasn’t planning on naming the record after my song, but the title just clicked. There’s radical freedom when you’re trying to make it as an independent artist. It’s a bit feral. Sleeping under the stars, hopping from town to town… there were so many highs and lows to dive into artistically.”
