Hollowstar formed in early 2015, bringing together the talents of vocalist/bassist Joe Bonson, drummer Jack Bonson, and guitarists Phil Haines and Tom Collett, to create a distinct take on classic, punchy rock. Quickly gaining traction following their debut gig, the lads have since had the pleasure of sharing stages with the likes of Chantel McGregor, Toseland, Barns Courtney and The Wholls, whilst receiving regular airplay on BBC Introducing.
With riffs fit to grace arenas one day, and with a rapidly growing reputation for being a hugely entertaining live act, Hollowstar are one of the rising stars of the burgeoning Cambridge rock scene. Having produced bands such as Lonely The Brave and Mallory Knox in recent years, Hollowstar are the latest band to emerge from the Cambridge and are already being hailed as the finest unsigned rock band in the area. Their mission is simple; To make some of the finest rock and roll ever heard on this side of the Atlantic.
