ABOUT HOLLOWAY ROAD:
The first thing you notice about UK duo Holloway Road’s live performance is that it doesn’t look like country music; they’re more baseball caps and trainers than Stetsons and boots. But the sound they make sits somewhere between the country-pop chart and the Nashville songwriting they both grew up listening to. The second thing you notice is the crowd’s response;Holloway Road have spent the last two years playing throughout the UK & Europe, honing their live show, and as a result they understand the importance of being both a standout name on any lineup and a high energy crowd-pleaser.
They haven’t been afraid to gain momentum while learning their craft – having been named BCMA & UKCountryRadio Duo of The Year 2016; played the Martin stage at CMA Fest; performed for the Country to Country (C2C) crowds on two consecutive years; partied with Kacey Musgraves and landed both their EPs in the iTunes country top ten thanks to radio play across the UK for their singles ‘Little Harder, ‘Where We Are Tonight’, and ‘If She Falls’ – which has now been added to Spotify UK’s Very Nearly Nashville playlist and streamed over 75k times – and national coverage in publications including Vice, Country Music Magazine and The Daily Mail (“an impressive set for a huge mob of fans…”) success in a growing international country scene is increasingly becoming part of the Holloway Road story.
