Cincinnati based multi-instrumentalist / singer-songwriter Royal Holland has been recording songs over the last month with the venerable Brian Olive at the Diamonds recording studio in the Northside neighborhood of Cincinnati. Holland will be releasing these songs on his debut EP titled “Volume One – The Maze” at the Northside Tavern on September 4th.

“Recording with Brian was phenomenal” says Holland. Olive and Holland collaborated on the production of the five songs that will help define the initial Royal Holland sound. “I have self-recorded demos in which I was performing all of the parts, engineering and mixing, but I was able to take all the time I wanted, in the studio the stakes are raised a bit because you know you want that final product to be magical. Working with Brian really captured the essence of what these songs mean to me.”

The EP will contain tracks that were voted on by Holland’s fans, and as the name “Volume One” implies, there will be more to follow. Holland and Olive will collaborate again in December to record the second volume, and shortly thereafter for a third. The plan is to then release the EPs collected onto vinyl before moving on to a concept LP.

Holland will be touring the Midwest and East Coast in support of the release, but not before a stint in his hometown. He will be the Artist in Residency at the Drinkery every Wednesday night in the month of August. “I jumped at the chance to do the AIR at the Drinkery the month before the EP drops and touring,” Holland states “It will be so great to see old and new friends and share the stage with so many great musicians before I head out on the empty road.” Joining him during his residence are Chuck Cleaver of Wussy (8/6), Margaret Darling (Ex. Seedy Seeds 8/13), Jasmine Poole of Wonky Tonk (8/20) and a dark electronic rock band from Pittsburgh named Action Camp (8/27). The shows are all free and there will be continuous music from 10pm – 1:30am.
