About the Release:
Have you ever wondered what would happen if an ambient producer with a pop side project, picked up his guitar late at night and in a hypnagogic state started contemplating the cosmic fringes of folk & Americana? Here’s how it happened:
"There is this specific mood I get into sometimes late at night. Usually, there's a moderate amount of red wine involved, and I'll find myself looking out the window, not really thinking, just being there. Hollawood is a soundtrack to those nights.
During the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, I moved some gear from the studio I share with my wife into my daughter's room. Wanting to respect her space, I made do with my guitar, a sampler, and a few guitar pedals. That's what you're hearing. I hope you like it; I had a lot of fun making these tracks."
/Jörgen Kjellgren - Stockholm, August 2020
Andy Wilson (Ibiza Sonica) - "I’m also really enjoying the Hollawood ep , sits very nicely with the Raymond Richards LP on ESP and is great for poolside at Pikes and sunsets at La Torre."
Bill Brewster (DJ History) - "This is lovely, like a modern early Fleetwood Mac. Ta for sending."
