HELLER RIDGE SESSIONS GOING STRONG!

Nashville, TN-Heller Ridge is a new name to some in the Country Music and Southern Rock world but, to Jason Hollis and Kevin Herrick this has been years in the making.  They have been performing on the road touring and doing session work in studios for over 28 years; and have been writing partners for over three years now creating their upcoming debut album of ten new songs, self-titled “Heller Ridge.”  “We have been perfecting these songs for a few years now and we just want to make an album full of songs that fans will enjoy for years to come.  We really started out to get our songs heard as songwriters but we decided to go ahead and put it out ourselves as Heller Ridge.” says Jason Hollis.  Working along side of the guys is platinum-selling, recording session drummer, Patrick Maley who has stepped in to play drums and percussion throughout the album.  “The guys asked me to play over a year ago and I said let’s do it!  I have known these guys for years and love their songwriting so I jumped at the chance to play.  The guys came over last week and we started cutting drums and bass at my home studio.” said Patrick.  The album is at the half-way mark now and will hopefully be completed before this summer of 2018.  “We are so excited to get this album out to folks who want to hear something that’s different than what’s on radio right now songs with strong hooks that you just automatically start singing after you hear them.  Our biggest hope is that you like it so much that you keep spinning it again and again” says Kevin Herrick.  Be on the lookout for their debut album later this year.

SONGWRITERS: JASON HOLLIS & KEVIN HERRICK

Hollis Herrick Songwriting 1Nashville, TN-Life-Line Worldwide Music Publishing Owner and Songwriter, Jason Hollis along with long-time Songwriting partner, Kevin Herrick have been putting the finishing touches on a brand new batch of songs.  The two first started working together years ago playing with Country recording artist, Jeremy Miller and at church; now for the last two years have been writing songs getting back to what they do best.   “I’ve been writing for years even before I moved to Nashville I’ve been involved in the writing process whether it was Southern Gospel, Country, or Bluegrass it’s always been a part of me. Writing with Jason Hollis has been great because he comes from the Rock-N-Roll world and he has amazing melodies.  It’s not your traditional Country sound but it’s definately got a Country feel to it.  I enjoy the way we work together; there’s just something about it that just works,” says Kevin Herrick.  “Working on the first ten songs has taken a while but now we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel; Working with Kevin has taught me a lot about songwriting and about Country music in general; how to really tell a story and make it come alive for the listener.  I have been having the time of my life,” says Jason Hollis.  The two will be playing out at small venues around the Nashville area to introduce the songs to people in the not to distant future.  Be on the lookout over the next year for an album to appear as well; more to come on that later.
