Hollis Creek Revival Release Debut “In The River” Album

Christian rock newcomers, Hollis Creek Revival released their debut album, In The River, on iTunes yesterday.  Hailing from lower Alabama, the band consists of Brandon Kelley (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, piano, harmonica, 6 string banjo), Clint Singleton (bass guitar, electric guitar, acoustic guitar), and Jacob Patillo (electric guitar, acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin).  Kelley comes from three generations of preachers and wanted to honor his patriarch by naming the band after his grandfather, Hollis Kelley.  “It was about recognizing my heritage and the legacy of my grandfather and my father,” explains the group’s front man.

Hollis Creek Revival began working on the album in February of 2015 with producer Jason Hoard (Third Day, Casting Crowns, Natalie Grant).  “We really wanted to try something new with this record. We wanted to have a distinct A-side with a more modern feel and sound. And a B-side with more of a vintage, retro sound,” explains Kelley.  “We recorded through seventies pre-amps and mic’s to achieve the sound we wanted and at one point I used a green bullet from the 1940’s to record the vocals on ‘Violin,’” explains Kelley.

“Jason is an amazing talent and he really brought the songs to life,” Kelley continues.  You can see from front to back the range of songs can felt and heard. The tune ‘Believe’ takes you through all of the creations seen in life that make you feel at home on earth. You have a catchy folk rock song with ‘Right On Time.’ As you work your way to the B-side you have songs like ‘Weightless Yesterday’ that paint a picture of an intimate conversation. The record finishes with the hymn ‘What A Day That Will Be,’ which was my grandfather’s and is my father’s favorite hymn,” says Kelley. hollis creek revival
