[Hollow River]’s super power is the tone of his writing - it's raw and real and really well composed lyrically. The guy's a maniac in the studio, you know anything Hollow River releases is going to BUMP! He enters triple-threat world too with some very legit guitar chops. ”

— Pat Hanlin (American Songwriting Award Winner)
