Holloway Road are Jack Cooper and Robert Gulston both originating from sunny Southend-On-Sea. But these aren’t your ordinary Essex boys. Instead of tanning or getting their vajazzles done they’re creating “free big in your face” country pop music. Jack and Robert being in their mid twenties now have had their fair share of experience writing and playing around the world.
Having gone to school and working in the same musical projects together Jack and Roberts habit for writing and producing stems from the idea of just being able to write about being real and having a good time. Just some of their influences are Florida Georgia Line, Kacey Musgraves, The Eagles and Mumford and Sons and drinkin’ a beer!

Now that Holloway Road is in its second year Jack and Robert are planning on putting out more music, touring and making sure their footprints is firmly concreted up ya’ll ass’!
A staple in the Nashville music community, Fairchild hit the scene to much acclaim with her debut album Ride. The project introduced the artist’s soulful, gospel-tinged brand of alt-country and spawned a hit with “You Don’t Lie Here Anymore.” She toured with some of the biggest names including Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Tim McGraw, and began to dig her roots in the industry. She again found success in her second release, Ruby’s Money– but it’s Buffalo that marks a milestone in her life and career.
The Jackson, Mississippi native started the project launching a PledgeMusic campaign in the hopes that she would find support of her endeavor– and after reaching her goal in just two days, she realized she had.One of the most standout tracks on Buffalo, the blues-ridden up-tempo tune “Mississippi Turnpike (feat. Lucie Silvas),” came in the wake of a breakup. A longtime hidden gem in the trove of Nashville musicians, it is clear she is just getting started.
