The emerging duo described as “the most exciting live act in the UK” (Lyric Mag) didn’t earn that reputation by accident.
Having each spent years in punk rock bands, Jack & Robert – better known as Holloway Road – bring that same mentality and independent mindset to their work as one of the most talked-about new international artists in the country scene, unafraid to put in the mileage and take their music to wherever fans are. Jack Cooper, one of the genre’s most distinctive lead vocalists, is balanced by Robert Gulston’s harmonies and unmatched pop-infused production skills, to create the unique sound so familiar to the fans they’ve gained and artists they’ve collaborated with over the last few years.
Having been selected as one of the first British featured artists on Bauer Media’s 24/7 station Country Hits Radio, the band have also enjoyed long-term support from other key radio stations such as Chris Country, Downtown Country and BBC Radio across the UK, as well as WSM-AM and other stations in the USA.
With a track record that includes sold-out European shows both as a headliner and alongside US & Canadian chart-toppers like Lindsay Ell, Walker Hayes, Danielle Bradbery and Lauren Alaina; and festival appearances including CMA Fest, The Long Road, C2C at the O2 Arena, Nashville Meets London and more, Holloway Road’s work hasn’t gone unnoticed, with national television appearances and coverage in outlets like Vice, Maverick Magazine and The Daily Mail newspaper (“an impressive set for a huge mob of fans…”)
Influenced by artists as diverse as George Strait and Stormzy, Jack & Rob spent 2019 building on their hard-won reputation as the band who bring the soundtrack to the most raucous of parties, while delivering another side to their sound, with two more thoughtful, introspective self-penned tracks: ‘Lightning’ & ‘My Love’, each with major playlist support on streaming platforms and as much earworm potential as their more upbeat offerings, bringing the total on-demand streams to date for their independently released music to well over a million.
With more new music on the horizon, tens of thousands of new listeners across the world every month, and having recently joined the ranks of SESAC as songwriters, and renowned global live agency ITB, this is the decade of Holloway Road.
