about the band

“Releasing an album as grand and scopic as The Sugar Hollows would be a triumph for any band. To do it as your debut collection of songs? Incredible. These ten songs point to a quartet of musicians who know where they come from musically and where they want to go in harmony. They possess the open heart to explore that path fully and the keen intellect to know when it’s okay to take a detour and maybe find something that can make their travels more memorable and enjoyable. It’s a trip we can’t wait to re-live with the band over and over again on this album that vividly depicts a restless musical heart and gives it the orientation it so desperately craves.”

The Sugar Hollows is a folk rock band from Richmond, VA. They recently released their debut self-titled album in the spring of 2023, which included 10 well-crafted original songs that earned the group some really positive regional and national press.  

After the release, they embarked on their maiden east coast tour with stops in every state from Georgia to Delaware, including major cities like Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh, Nashville, Knoxville, Charlottesville, and Richmond. They returned home from tour to a sold out album release show in front of their local fans, friends, families, and fellow musicians at Get Tight Lounge.  

A follow-up sophomore album is in the works with songs that really begin to identify who The Sugar Hollows are. Winter show dates have already been announced with more along the way, including east coast runs in both the spring and summer as well as multiple festival dates.

"Taking a blend of pop-aware rock and Americana, combining melody and muscle and no small amount of intelligent song-writing chops, their eponymous debut already sounds like the work of a seminal band right from the off. And that is a hard thing to do."
