The Hollow Glow / Press

“Overall, The Hollow Glow EP is well worth a listen several times over and is sure to put The Hollow Glow on the map in every way that is right.”

“You may find yourself pleasantly surprised by The Hollow Glow. What the band serves up are straight-ahead, no-nonsense riff rockers tailor-made for the high school parking lot or small-town cruising around on a Friday night.”

Rick Johnson - Portland Press Herald

“The Hollow Glow is definitely not a band to overlook. They have a maturity in their song writing that very few bands possess these days. Fans of the Foo Fighters, the Silversun Pickups, and the Deftones should definitely check out this new album ~ as should anyone who simply likes genuinely good music.”

“The Toronto Rock Radio Show proudly supports Ben Carroll and The Hollow Glow - Ben is a musician of our times who is steeped in the knowledge of all the great rockers that came before him and magically brings all this knowledge forward to give us an exciting, fresh, and long needed new approach to modern rock that has just enough familiarity to comfort us coupled with enough unknown to wow us!”

Brad Wilson of Toronto Rock Radio

“Hiding in the Northeast corner of the United States, The Hollow Glow is right now the region's best kept secret. Ben Carroll's lyrics, songwriting and arranging are sensitive one minute, angry and intense the next, but through the entire full-length album always completely honest. With the addition of bassist Tom Connors and drummer Travis Barton, the Hollow Glow is definitely a band to keep an eye on.”

“Nice album…solid production, great hooks, and it has melody….gotta have melody, I don’t care who you are. The Hollow Glow is The Cars with a bit of road rage!”

Andy Austin of Portland Maine's rock station The Bone

“I'm in love with this album...Kinda like a super group right here.”

Katrina of Portland Maine's rock station The Bone

“The Hollow Glow is flavored with Ben’s virtuoso guitar playing and pleasantly flawed vocal character which contrasts with his other band’s lead vocalist, Sahaj, whose vocals glam and glitter RA material like a flawless diamond. The Hollow Glow album relies heavily on it’s catchy single “Head West.” This is a heavy hitting album from one of our region’s top performers.”

“Guitarist Ben Carroll of the alternative metal band Ra has a new project called The Hollow Glow, which marks his first time as the lead singer. The new self-titled and self-released album has already gained quite a bit of attention all over the world.”
