Hole In The Ground

Sep 4th, 2014 // In: Featured, Music, Portfolio // By: Comments Off on Hole In The Ground

Hole In The Ground is a Blues/Rock ensemble comprised of a handful of the top session players in the country, and some might say, world. With credits ranging from Mariah Carey, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, BB King, John Mellencamp, Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, and Michael McDonald, to name a few.  As the credits listed below will confirm, the collective resume of this band is quite impressive. Their debut studio album is the soundtrack to the first of a kind “novel with a soundtrack” by Sebastian Brown, “Gonna Dig Myself a Hole… ‘n’ myself in it”. The talent and genuine star personality of the band was also captured by an epic behind the scenes video compilation available with the Deluxe version of the novel. The compilation is dedicated to Bee Spears, a now posthumous member of Hole In The Ground.
