Hollis Brown Signs With TCI For World-Wide Management

Hollis Brown Signs With TCI For World-Wide Management
New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ TCI) Queens, NY-based band Hollis Brown have signed with Talent Consultants International, Ltd. (TCI) in New York for world-wide management.

With a distinct sound uniting hook-soaked pop and blues-drenched rock-n-roll, Hollis Brown is a throwback to an era when music felt fresh, songwriting was revered, and performances routinely inspired. Possessing a seemingly endless supply of infectious melodies and a live show that has attracted a devoted following, Hollis Brown has distinguished itself as essential in the crowded musical landscape of New York City.

Hollis Brown will join TCI's recently formed Management Division, announced in conjunction with the company's 30th Anniversary in 2013, whose roster includes British Invasion legends The Zombies, Turkish arena-rockers maNga, hit songwriter Bruce Sudano, West London tunesmiths Et Tu Brucé, and jazz pianist Noah Pine. TCI's President and founder, Margo Lewis, was the long-time manager of Rock 'n' Roll originator Bo Diddley, and as a musician, toured with her first band supporting the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and The Yardbirds. According to Lewis, "We are thrilled to have Hollis Brown join the TCI family. Their classic approach to songwriting and recording makes them sound both fresh and timeless, and brings me back to the bands I worked with at the start of my career. Add in a killer live show honed by constant touring in America and Europe, and you have a band for the decades."

Hollis Brown released their 2013 debut full-length album "Ride On The Train" on Alive NaturalSound Records, the label that launched The Black Keys, and has quickly seen its tracks featured on MTV's "The Real World", Showtime's "Shameless" and the upcoming Willem Dafoe/Matt Dillon film "Bad Country". On Record Store Day (April 19th), "Hollis Brown Gets Loaded" will see the light of day - a limited edition vinyl tribute to the Velvet Underground's 1970 classic album "Loaded" - one of the first records the band bonded over musically. A release party and concert is being planned in New York City for April 19th. This will be immediately followed by a tour of the Southern U.S. April 23rd to May 4th supporting The Zombies, with stops in Nashville, Memphis, Birmingham, Dallas and more, and then an extensive headline tour of the UK and Europe throughout June. The band's busy touring schedule is handled by New Frontier Touring in America and Sedate Bookings in Europe.

Hollis Brown can be seen this week tearing up Austin, TX with five showcases during the SXSW Music Conference.
