HELLER RIDGE RECORDING NEW ALBUM FOR RELEASE LATE 2017

Nashville, TN-Singer-Songwriters Kevin Herrick and Jason Hollis known as the Duo-Country group, Heller Ridge are beginning the process of recording their new album which will have a projected release date in late 2017.  Over the last two years they have been writing and recording demos for the ten new songs for this album.  “They all have our signiture sound of catchy melodies and harmonies; and uptempo songs and ballads.  There is a wide range of subjects like Love songs, overcoming adversity, relationships gone bad, and finding your way back home.  It’s truly a body of work that we are proud of” says Jason Hollis.  The sound is described as Country music with a Rock edge to it with rich harmonies.  “My background is in Southern Gospel and Traditional Country where Jason comes from the Rock N Roll world of writing.  It’s a sound all it’s own for the most part because harmonies are not prevalent in todays Country marketplace” says Kevin Herrick.  “We will be recording at different studios for this album because of who we are working with on this project, the acoustics, and the vibe, it’s all going to work well together; We are going to begin next month in July to kick things off” said Jason Hollis.  As songwriters they hope to pitch the songs to other artists as well because they want the world to hear these stories through song.
