Mental Wellness is an important topic for us. So many of us battle with mental wellness and we should be talking about it instead of trying to pretend it's not happening.
The Contact EP is here! We are delighted to share our new music with you. Thank you for being here and we hope you enjoy.
“Life is happening right NOW, and this EP is our tip-of-the-hat to vintage rock and roll. The instrumentals for Contact were tracked live and the songs are about conversation. Human interaction. We wanted to track our songs as they’re intended to be heard by a live audience. Pure and honest. I mean, we touched up the record some but we didn't add a Snapchat filter,” says founder and frontman, Spencer Townshend Hughes.
The reviews are rolling in and they have us PSYCHED to play the album live for you on Saturday, 10/13! Pick up your tickets now.

Tuesday, 12/5/2017 is Colorado Gives Day. A day where Colorado stands together to show that we support each other and have one of the best communities around.
In 2017, we are honored and humbled to support two incredible, local music nonprofits doing amazing work for our local community: Youth on Record and Levitt Denver.
Because everyone deserves more music in their lives.
Thank you for considering a partnership that creates opportunities in our community to make and enjoy music.
93.3’s Hometown for the Holidays (HTFTH) is on like Donkey Kong, and Sleep Talkin’ is officially submitted.
This contest is a big deal, and you hold the power to make a difference in the outcome.
What is HTFTH? Great question! Every year, Denver’s own radio juggernauts at 93.3 KTCL collect the best of the best in Colorado talent. Their team of music experts (and nerds) get together to vote and discuss their favorite submissions, narrowing the submissions down to 10 finalists. ALL of the top 10 finalists receive air-time on 93.3 during the month of December, which equals HUGE exposure.
The top 10 are then narrowed down to 3 by YOU, the listeners, via the music surveys (see below). Past winners of this contest have gone on to do great things and include the likes of… The Flobots, Churchill, The Epilogues, 888 and more!
This is where you come in.
In Hometown for the Holidays, the listeners pick the winners. It’s up to you to vote for The Hollow to win it big.
We’ve submitted our new single, Sleep Talkin’, and we’re confident that it has a shot to win it all.

p.s. Have you had a chance to check out (and share) the new Sleep Talkin’ video for yourself yet? Watch it here now!
Today’s the big day. We’ve been working on this thing for six months: writing, conceptualizing, playing, tracking, editing, crimping, shooting, doodling, canoodling, and wrapping it all up for you, our incredible supporters who helped make it all happen.
Now, the video is ready. It’s hot. It’s spicy. It’s loud and heavy; and, to be honest with you, we’re pretty damn proud.
Our biggest and best show of the year! Join us for a pajama party, amazing friends from around the state, and so much more.
How are you? Now, how are you, really?
Spencer said, 'hey team, let's do an acoustic show live on the digital interwebs.'
And so we did. But we did NOT expect the turnout we received. You all are incredible. We are blown away by our amazing crowmunity of music lovers.
Check out this blog to hear a cut from our acoustic show of our fan-favorite "An Open Letter to Kim K".
This year has been absolutely incredible, and we couldn't have done it without you!
And when we say we couldn't have done it without you, we certainly mean it.
Our tale blisters back to the wintery February of 2016...
We we’re fortunate enough to play four of our songs in an extremely vulnerable and stripped-down fashion, relying on the content of the music (rather than the effects and often sweaty stage performance) to entice the audience members. The incredible team at Sofar Denver provided us with a video of our lyrically haunting tune “Catch As You Can”.
A mere three months ago, our mission was simple: To travel the Southwest U.S. and provide the rock for 7 major markets in 10 days. To inspire music-lovers and concert-goers to believe that rock and roll is not dead, yet it is alive and well.
It’s with a hushed tone and slight tremble in our voice to even think the words that we’ll pen to you.
The ability for us musicians to live our dream, to build a life enriched by the pursuit of music entrepreneurship, was made possible by you.
And for that, we are forever grateful.
I can’t believe how many things we have to tell you!
We’re back on the road with a little drive time so I can put this pen to paper and spin this yarn to spindle a quilt of honest rock tales for you to snuggle up with.
Everyone's in great spirits as we are about halfway done with this tour! We're over the hump. :)
Our southern California shows were killer!
When you take the reigns of a Rock / Roll vessel into the SouthWest American landscape… you’re bound to experience some good olde fashion weatherin’!
Like the pioneers in the classic Oregon Trail game…we’re trekking west for a little of that American Dream. I guess I’m just lucky I didn’t get dysentery… or was it scurvy?? Well either way, I’m drinking more Vitamin C to be sure.
Oh and would you look at that… just crossed into LA County! Stoked for our show tonight at The Silverlake Lounge.
We just arrived in Salt Lake City and thought we’d drop you a note to keep you in the loop of our tour endeavors thus far!
Our first show last night at The Whiskey in Fort Collins was a ton of fun.
Our close and dear friend Vu (affectionately known as Vu Balls) helped us get the whole thing together with his main man JRock… and we are grateful for their support in getting us into The Whiskey. Vu Ballz is like the coolest and most popular guy in Fort Collins… he even got a keg donated for the event!
