Mars Hollow are based out of Southern California’s musically fertile San Fernando Valley, where some of rock’s classic albums have been recorded. Comprised of four veteran musicians – John Baker (vocals/guitar), Jerry Beller (drums/vocals), Kerry Chicoine (bass/vocals) and Steve Mauk (keyboards/vocals) – Mars Hollow blend their unique individual musical voices into one captivating whole.
Mars Hollow take the foundation of ‘70’s progressive rock – classical-based song structures combined with melodic pop and rock sensibilities – and update this classic formula for the new millennium. Seamlessly blending unexpected instrumental passages with traditional progressive, pop and rock motifs, Mars Hollow strive for songwriting balance sprinkled with the left-turns necessary to keep the music challenging and moving. In other words, it’s all about the song.
Mars Hollow’s self-titled debut album is a rich tapestry of influences, combining matchless musicianship with infectious pop hooks and hard-driving progressive rock sensibilities. The CD was produced, mixed and mastered by King Crimson associate Ronan Chris Murphy. Ronan has also been involved with such artists as Terry Bozzio, Steve Morse, Tony Levin, Steve Stevens, Mike Keneally, the California Guitar Trio, and Nels Cline.
