Scotch Hollow

Scotch Hollow

 Kansas City, Missouri, USA

Scotch Hollow, an acoustic roots band, teams up down-home delta blues with good old-fashioned country twang and silky vocals. Just as the name implies, Scotch Hollow is as smooth as your favorite whiskey. Mark and Carley met while attending Berklee College of Music, in Boston, MA.

An explosion happened at Berklee College of Music when Mark and Carley met; they discovered a musical chemistry that they couldn't walk away from. Mark's hillbilly  punk-rock-loving self grew up in the Appalachian mountains in central Pennsylvania's;  Carley grew up in Kansas City taking in the historic blues and jazz music. After 8 years living Chicago and Nashville, they are now back in Kansas City.  They are joined by JD Linn on the bass, and touring throughout the mid-west, north-east and southern states.
