Joe Martin is a Country and Americana singer songwriter from the Ribble Valley but has for the past few years been based in Leeds. Joe has always been surrounded by music, brought up listening to artists such as the Beatles, the Eagles, James Taylor, Bob Dylan. And since his interest in the genre of Americana and Country music has developed, he has taken influence from more contemporary artists such as Jason Isbell, Kacey Musgraves, John Paul White and Brent Cobb when writing his own songs. He started writing when he was fifteen and focused his efforts exclusively on Country before moving to Leeds to study music. Over the three years living in Leeds, Joe supported Country acts such as The Shires, Ward Thomas and performed at festivals such as Country to Country, The Great British Folk Festival and High and Lonesome Festival with his band. While visiting Nashville in Autumn 2016 Joe collaborated with London producer Sue McMillan and hit songwriter Jill Colucci, and also recorded at Sound Emporium Studios which has hosted artists such as Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss and the cast of the US drama Nashville.

As Nashville based songwriters, Tommy and Lorrie got not 1, but 2 cuts on Reba McEntire’s double platinum selling album ‘Duets’. They included a song with Reba and Faith Hill called ‘Sleeping with a Telephone’ and another with Reba and Carole King called ‘Everyday People’, which was also performed live at the Kennedy center with Reba and Carole in front of the President and the entire nation via NBC. (As far as we know, we’re the only outside writers to ever get a Carole King cut that she didn’t write).
Lost Hollow has appeared on the Bob Harris ‘Under the Apple Tree’ sessions and has toured England, Wales, and Ireland on many trips to the Uk as well as appearing on the BBC via several different radio shows.
Lost Hollow has been described as an emotional powerhouse. Two amazing voices weaving intricate and powerful songs.
1 hit songwriter Liz Hengber describes Lorrie as ‘the best singer in Nashville’ while Garth Brooks describes Lost Hollow’s music as ‘haunting’ and ‘very cool.’
Reba McEntire says “I’ve been very fortunate to work with Tommy… and I’ve gotten to record songs written by Tommy and Lorrie…I’m very proud of both of them.”
Tim Fraser, hit songwriter and board member of BASCA says Lost Hollow “captures magic every time they sing”, “the production is beyond inspired”, and Lorrie is “officially my favorite singer.”
Larry Gatlin says this “dynamic duo is just that…DYNAMIC!!”
One fan tweeted “Lost Hollow is the love child of Fleetwood Mac and the Civil Wars!”
