El Hula is currently touring a new release from collaboration with producer Gordon Raphael (The Strokes, The Libertines) who produced the 2nd LP Violent Love back when founding member Blair Jollands was signed to Boy George’s More Protein label. Once described as the B*stard son of Jim Morrison and Desi Arnaz, Jollands music communicates a paradoxical mix of melancholia and optimism that is hard to resist. Big on melody & mystery with a hint of Morricone. Often compared vocally to Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright & Scott Walker, El Hula has received much praise from the likes of NME, Guardian, Uncut, Artrocker, and more.

'Jollands captures Presley's southern gospel melodrama, no small achievement for one born 12'000 miles from Memphis' THE GUARDIAN
'Exceptional, big soul stuff. This year's Rufus Wainwright at least' UNCUT
'The sweeping drama of Nick Cave, elegant melodies of Scott Walker and soulful swagger of Rufus Wainwright' CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE

Hailing from Amsterdam, Dusty Stray features the alt-folk repertoire of Texan expat Jonathan Brown. He delves into universal themes of heartbreak, loneliness and death with a twisted sense of humor and a soothing touch. The songs are firmly rooted in all things Americana (due to Brown's Texan upbringing and musicianship) but always reach out to new horizons, be they through toy instrument accompaniment, electronica, space echos or outsider art. The musical roots of his forefathers are combined with sounds and visions of the future.
