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.

She recently received a standing ovation opening for Melissa Etheridge at The Ryman, as a solo looper artist on July 30th 2023.
JAX HOLLOW - "ONLY THE WILD ONES" Released May 5th 2023
Refining the heavier, rock ‘n’ roll machismo of previous work with producer Michael Wagener (Metallica, Mötley Crüe), the new record distills a more distinctive sound that yields progressive Southern rock and country twang, combined with throwback 70's rock and a Nashville twist on her sophomore album "Only the Wild Ones" (Streaming Now!).
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. In a recent interview, Jax recounts her sessions in Studio B;
“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 and camped out for a few days. That’s where I landed on Only the Wild Ones". I wasn’t planning on naming the record after a song on the record, 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.”
Jax is currently writing for the next record and booking shows for the 2023 season. She is looking to expand her team, as well as connecting with Music Industry Professionals, Booking agents, AnR, Promotions, Producers and Distribution.

"The quality of the musicianship is eclipsed only by the depth and virtuosity of the song writing. Jax has learned her craft and paid her dues and, if there’s any justice left in the world, this album could be ‘Tapestry’ for Gen Z."
- Iain McArthur, Rockfiend
"Jax is an amazing artist; her music is different and instantly identifiable."
- Michael Wagener, Producer/Engineer
“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
