The Sugar Hollows is some-kind-of-rock band hailing from Richmond, VA. They were recently featured by Americana Highways and Music Mecca for their latest single ‘Sweet Virginia Girl’ and have a full-length album in the works, which will be released in 2023. Formed in 2021 by Michael Dunn (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Gabriel Spadaccini (lead guitar), the band started out as an acoustic duo covering songs by Allman Brothers, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Willie and Lukas Nelson, and other artists from past and modern times before starting to write their own songs. They have since refined their sound as a 4-piece rock outfit by adding Sean O’Reilly on bass and Noah Yates on drums. They have eclectic musical tastes ranging from folk and country music to psychedelic and classic rock, and they write songs about life, love, and all of the things that make you feel kinda funny. All of their music is recorded and released by Good Weather Records in Richmond, VA.
