Pale Hollow was the winner of The Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame's National Music Video Contest:"Rock Your Way To Cleveland" 2009 for their video for their song "Sugarcane"! Check it out here:


Cleveland, Ohio’s, Pale Hollow naturally combines elements of folk rock
with the restless urgency of a rustbelt garage band. Their songs, though
modern and melodic, are anchored by the solid rock and pop traditions
of the 60’s and 70’s.

Inspired by British folk artist such as Nick Drake and John Martyn,
Michael Allen, bought an acoustic guitar and started writing songs to
perform in local coffee houses around Cleveland. With a batch of home
demos, he went to Detroit to record his debut album with producer Al
Sutton (Greta Van Fleet, Kid Rock, Detroit Cobras), The resulting record
was a shimmering blend of Alt-Country/Folk-Pop, with shades of British
Invasion thrown in for color. With comparisons to The Kinks, The Verve,
David Bowie and Neil Young, Pale Hollow has gained the attention of
press and fans alike.

Pale Hollow were the grand prize winners of the Rock N' Roll Hall Of
Fames 2009 National Music Video contest "Rock Your Way To Cleveland” for
their song “Sugarcane”. They’ve also received national attention with
performances at the 2008 Midpoint Music Conference in Cincinnati, and
the 2008 International Pop Overthrow in Youngstown Ohio.

Pale Hollow has recently teamed up again with producer with Al Sutton
(Greta Van Fleet) to record their second full length CD. The new record
is called Pilots and will be released in the Fall of 2018.
