The first thing you notice about UK duo Holloway Road’s live performance is that it doesn’t look like country music; they’re more baseball caps and trainers than Stetsons and boots. But the sound they make sits somewhere between the country-pop chart and the Nashville songwriting they both grew up listening to. The second thing you notice is the crowd’s response; Holloway Road - Jack Cooper & Robert Gulston - have spent the last three years playing throughout the UK & Europe, honing their live show, and as a result they understand the importance of being both a standout name on any lineup and a high energy crowd-pleaser.
They haven’t been afraid to gain momentum while learning their craft - having opened for The Shires, Lindsay Ell and more; named BCMA & UKCountryRadio Duo of The Year; written and performed in Nashville including a slot at CMA Fest; performed for the Country to Country (C2C) crowds on three consecutive years along with an appearance at the first Country Music Week in London; and landed both their EPs in the iTunes country top ten thanks to radio play across the UK for their singles ‘Little Harder, 'Where We Are Tonight', and 'If She Falls', which has also been streamed over 250k times to date - and with national coverage in publications including Vice, Country Music Magazine and The Daily Mail ("an impressive set for a huge mob of fans...") success in a growing international country scene is increasingly becoming part of the Holloway Road story.
Radio support to date has included the Chris Country A-list, BBC Radio 2 Country and a live appearance on regional stations including BBC Radio London, and towards the end of 2017 the band set out on their first UK headline tour, which was documented in the music video for recent single 'Under Cover', available to watch/stream/download now.
In March 2018 Holloway Road released two brand new singles, 'In The Dark' & 'No Place', with the tracks - described by the band as a taste of what's to come on their forthcoming EP - being picked up on a number of streaming and radio playlists, including a first play on Soho Radio on their release weekend.
