Hollowfade is an Alternative Rock trio from the foothills of North Carolina. Blending 90's Grunge, 2000's Post-Grunge, and Modern Hard Rock to create their own unique but familiar brand of Rock n' Roll, Hollowfade strays just far enough from their influences to set themselves apart. Lead singer James Brickey has a vocal tone and grit similar to 90's legends such as Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley. Vocals aside, Hollowfade's music is deeply aligned with acts such as Nickelback & Three Days Grace, but rooted in the teachings of classic rock icons like Clapton, Hendrix, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
The self-titled EP released in May of 2019 and was well recieved by critics; garnering a 3.6/5 by the ever-critical Divide & Conquer and a 7.5/10 on Reverbnation. The EP featured 4 songs and was self-produced in James's home-studio. The album gives a short glance at the diversity of Hollowfade's sound, each song having it's own groove and feel yet sharing a strong sonic core.

Born August 2, 1994
James Brickey grew up cutting his teeth on Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, and being raised in the "Bible Belt", he was exposed to a heaping dose of Southern Gospel and Bluegrass. After selling cans of soda at yard sales to raise money for an electric guitar, he learned to play at the age of 11. Only a year later at age 12 he started his first band, Ten More Years, which eventually evolved into what is known today as Hollowfade.
Born October 29, 1996
Alex Whitley saw James and Justus perform with Ten More Years at a middle school event in 2009, and immidiately knew he wanted to pursue music. After putting together a couple different groups that eventually disbanded, he jumped at the chance to audition for Ten More Years in 2011.
Born August 28, 1996
Being brothers only 2 years apart, Justus grew up right alongside James and was equally influenced by all the music James was. However, it was his brother's encouragement and persistance that led Justus to learn bass and join the band in 2009. Although having never shown interest in learning an instrument, the natural talent was there at his fingertips the minute he first picked up a bass. Justus is very heavily influenced by the workings of Ian Thornley and Big Wreck, as well as the groove and in-the-pocket playing of Victor Wooten.
