Singer Mike Montali and guitarist Jon Bonilla, the main songwriters in the roots rock act Hollis Brown, grew up listening to the classics. That certainly comes across on the group’s 2015 album, 3 Shots. With its hushed vocals and intricate guitar work, album opener “Cathedral” recalls the great singers and songwriters from the ’70s — think Jackson Browne, Neil Young or James Taylor. The band's current single, the uptempo “Run Right To You,” features soulful vocals and a touch of organ. There’s an Ohio connection here too as drummer Andrew Zehnal hails from Cleveland.
