Cleveland, Ohio’s, Pale Hollow naturally combines elements of roots-rock folk 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 the posh blues of Nick Drake and the woodsy jangle of Gram Parsons era Byrds, ex Jericho Turnpike bassist, 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 an album with producer Al Sutton (Detroit Cobras, Dead String Brothers). 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, Oasis and Neil Young, the self-titled release has gained the attention of press and fans alike.

With an acclaimed performances at the 2008 Midpoint Music Conference in Cincinnati, and the 2008 International Pop Overthrow in Youngstown Ohio, Pale Hollow is beginning to fulfill its vision nationwide!
