Since forming in the town of St Ives, Cambridgeshire back in 2015, Hollowstar have been hard at work perfecting their craft, delighting audiences across the country with their heavy-hitting dirty rock sound in the process. June of 2017 saw the launch of the band’s debut EP - Some Things Matter - to much critical acclaim, reaching 13th on the iTunes Rock Chart and helping to facilitate their first major steps onto the national and international scenes. Boasting regular radio airplay on some of the UK’s most prominent radio stations including the BBC, the lads have also seen their music gracing the airwaves in various countries throughout Europe and the wider world. Comprised of four accomplished musicians in the form of singer/bassist Joe Bonson, guitarists Phil Haines and Tom Collett, and drummer Jack Bonson, Hollowstar came together with one simple mission in mind; to make some of the finest rock and roll ever heard on this side of the Atlantic. Drawing upon influences including Black Stone Cherry, Thunder, and Slash, the lads quickly set about achieving their goal, and were soon found sharing stages with the likes of, Stone Broken, The Treatment, Chantel McGregor and Toseland, among others. Rock is once again rightfully on the rise, and Hollowstar look set to lead the charge into 2018 with riffs fit to grace arenas one day and a truly entertaining live show to match.
