“Rossi steps into different genres on this one. The thing about this record is that it will take him to a new level and pushes the boundaries. With only him and the acoustic, you can draw comparisons to City and Colour, Dustin Kensrue, and somewhat of the vocals style of Thriving Ivory. He steps into the more earthy side and involves some country and folk inspired depictions of his own songs like “Lay It on The Line.” “War” and “Science” are perfectly executed in the original vein they were intended.”
“Rossi took this on his own performing all instruments and producing the effort himself. “Hollywood” proves that Rossi doesn’t need to rely on others to show the world just how talented he really is. This album has every emotional moment documented; taking us on the journey of the supernova band, the ups and downs of labels and personal life. The music ranges from mainstream radio singles to harder edges songs that Rossi is known for.”

“It’s not very often an artist comes along with as much talent as Lukas Rossi. He has always been a brilliant songwriter and vocalist but producing has made him even better. The new album, Hollywood, has a very distinctive and original sound that is just amazing. The songs are amazingly catchy and don’t leave your head, but that is a positive thing.”
“Lukas was interviewed by Richard Lynch at the Kweevak Radio Show. Listen to Podcast #128”
“Lukas Rossi is back in 'Hollywood' with powerful new single - “Hollywood” is vintage Rossi, anthemic Bowie-like vocals, on a driving ballad. Hollywood was not all it promised for Rossi, (”I don’t think this wonderland is for me, because I will never change") but the namesake song is Rossi at his best. Check out the video as well when it is released in the next few weeks, it will give you some insight into the intensity with which Lukas performs. As he sings, "When the lights are out and the glitter swept away…," Lukas has the goods, and he delivers them big-time on his new single. Good looks, tattoos, piercings, eyeliner and cool gear aside, this guy can sing the hell out of a song, can write a killer melody, can play music like nobody's business, and will hopefully remain true to himself...just the way it should be done in Hollywood. Lukas Rossi deserves attention. Give it to him.”

"When it's all said and done you better have your game in check - your own music, and your own dreams," he said. "You've got to take from it what you can. It's not a free ride, you've got to work hard every single day."
"The only thing that can actually save someone from that disaster is actually having talent," says Rossi. "If you don't have talent, you get 12 months on tour and some airtime."
