Biography

Growing up in Anchorage,Alaska and relocating to Seattle,Wa in his early 20's, Shawn Holley self released 7 solo albums of anti-folk songs between 2000-2004. Touring the D.I.Y. network throughout the United States alone by greyhound bus and hitchhiking. In 2006, after moving to Portland Oregon, Holley recruted a bass player and drummer, then switched band names to Mythological Horses.

Mythological Horses is an electric mutation of Holley's acoustic songs with more of a rock n roll/punkrock charged loudness. With radio play across the states and press reviews crediting the band for non stop touring and with over 70,000 song plays on myspace, Holley kept the band touring more and more around the U.S. Hawaii and Alaska reaching upwords of 200 shows a year. Over the next few years, Mythological Horses released a string of self-released albums. In 2009, Mythological Horses posters where featured in the Showtime Television Series Weeds - (season 6). At the same time, Gene Ween of the band WEEN put Mythological Horses as his top friend on his myspace page which in turn lead the band to even more gigs, a live TV appearance in New York City on MNN (Manhattan) and a headlining slot at the New York anti-folk festival.
Recently signed to Hovercraft Records in Portland Oregon,the band will be releasing a full length album summer of 2013. Along with u.s. summer tours and a European tour in October
