"Album Review Heavy Weather - ETN"

"Heavy Weather" lives up to its title. First single "Gypsy Moth" and "Bottom of the Handle," in particular, feature crush-you, wall-of-guitar riffs that'd make Jack White jealous. Fans of, say, the White Stripes, Black Keys and the Kills will revel in their volcanic attack. Yet Falling Hollywood still excels at harmony-powered, melodic folk-rock and power-pop on insanely infectious songs such as "Mexican Wine" and "Blood Hits the Wall." - Erie Times News

"Album Review Heavy Weather - ER"

“2013’s sophomore follow-up, Heavy Weather, proves they can do it again – and do it better, and heavier. The vocals – from even-tighter harmonies of guitarists Matt Flowers and Nick Taylor to stronger distinctions between the two when separated – draw listeners in to darker, more mature lyrics (“Blood Against The Wall” and “Breaking Bread”), while the fuller soundscape populated with thicker guitar work, Bill Frackowiak’s delightfully busy bass lines (“Mexican Wine”), and the churning engine of Brad Triana’s drumming (“Vicious Fishes”) result in a more refined Avett-Brothers-meet-Frank-Turner-and-drink-with-the-Black-Keys-and-Arctic-Monkeys rawk.” - Erie Reader

"Artist Review - EJ"

“With smart and catchy lyrics, phenomenal instrumentals, and musical harmonies that are not only addictive, but are simply energized with excitement and rhythmic magic, Falling Hollywood consistently delivers a sound that redefines the genres and raises the standards of what Indie and Alternative Rock should be.” - ERI Jams

"Cover Story - Erie Reader"

“You could call it folk rock, but if CSN is wine, Falling Hollywood is whiskey. You could call it pop punk, but if Green Day is menthol, Falling Hollywood is reds. You could call it cow punk, but if Jason and the Scorchers is bathtub gin, Falling Hollywood is PBR. You could call it rogue folk, but if the Pogues are a Guinness, Falling Hollywood is, well, still a PBR. Think Incubus, slightly amped from their acoustic configuration, or the Avett Brothers without the whine and cheese. Falling Hollywood is all of these, and none of these – their looks, their licks, and their lyrics all perfectly capture that awkward dirty bizarre absurdity of reality that many people refuse to reckon with; that’s why, for Falling Hollywood, the table is set – for success.” - Erie Reader

"Artist Review - Dr. Rock"

“Honest, gut-level, folk-powered acoustic songs... make [Falling Hollywood] one of Erie's most promising original bands.” - ETN - Showcase


Still working on that hot first release.



Audiences have responded well to their gritty-yet-fresh sound, and over the past two years, they've played nearly every major gig available in and around Erie, including Celebrate Erie, the Downtown Partnerships Block Parties, Romolo's Chocolates Music Series, The Great Blue Heron Music Festival, and The Gathering at Chaffees, while simultaneously becoming regulars at places like Basement Transmissions, the crooked i, Sandbar, and Sherlocks. They also became Erie Times News music critic Dr. Rocks darlings, frequented college radio programs, and appeared on the Erie Readers Aug. 22, 2012 cover. Lately, theyve been playing a greater amount of their gigs on the road at well-known venues like the Hard Rock Caf in Pittsburgh, Sullivan Hall in Greenwich Village, NYC, and the Grog Shop in Cleveland; and their recent Kickstarter campaign to fund their new album exceeded its $3,000 goal by 50 percent in just under 30 days. With the national release of their latest, and already highly regarded sophomore LP Heavy Weather, Falling Hollywood seems slated to be a break-out Artist of 2014.
