Wells Hollow Country Act

Wells Hollow, a Country act started in 2009 in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate NY, announces that they have signed an agreement with Lamon Records Nashville to produce their next project…a four-song CD tentatively self-titled “Wells Hollow.”The “EP” (an old industry term meaning Extended Play single) is due to be released May 15, 2010 and will feature new recordings of two songs from their award winning debut CD, “A Walk In The Hollow.” (available at Amazon and Itunes) In addition to remakes of “High Country” and “Haymaker”, they have also recorded two new songs, “Every Good Girl” and “More Country Today (Than I Was Yesterday)”One song from the collection will be released to radio and be available for airplay at every Country Music station in the US and overseas.The album is being produced by Lamon Records Nashville, and engineered by owner Dave Moody, formerly of the internationally famous “Moody Brothers.” Mr. Moody has worked with many famous acts, from modern artists like Tim McGraw and the Dixie Chicks, to country classics like Charlie Daniels and Hank Williams Jr. A player at the Grand Ole Opry, he has also been nominated for several Grammys and won a multitude of Dove Awards for his music production. Lamon has brought in some of Nashville’s hottest young studio players for the sessions, including guitarist Jeff King, who has played with Reba and Kelly Clarkson, and bassist Kevin Grantt, who has worked with Brad Paisley. Rounding out the rhythm section is drummer Josh Moody, a prodigy who at age 20 is already an established pro in the Music City. Mike Dorchette on Steel Guitar and Wanda Vike on Fiddle complete the roster of players.Upon completing the CD, the group will be back in Nashville in June for the Country Music Association “Fan Fair,” and to shoot a video of their radio single. That video will be available for broadcast later this summer on the CMT and GAC television channels.Wells Hollow, pending future expansion, is presently a duo consisting of singer Wayne Andrews and instrumentalist Bee Thomas. Mr. Andrews comes from a musical family and has been singing since childhood, and Mr. Thomas is a classically trained sax and guitar player with a Bachelor of Music degree from the Crane School of Music. (Bee played all the instruments on their first record.) The four songs on the new CD were co-written by this pair of BMI songwriters.In addition to releasing their CD to stores and their first single to radio, Wells Hollow is putting together a live band and will be hitting the road this summer. They are presently booking dates across western NY and PA and are available to open for national acts. Their schedule will be posted to their My Space page as it becomes available, at www.myspace.com/wellshollow. The acoustic duo will be appearing at the Eagle Hotel in Lodi, NY at 9pm on Saturday, May 1, 2010.
