Banty Holler is an Americana act based outa The Hague that plays Honky Tonk-inspired original material and pays tribute to the likes of Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.
Following the solo EPs of the previous two years: Tradition and Wired for Sound, comes the bluegrass-flavored single Streets of Laredo, recorded live at the Twang Wolf Studio with Arno Keet and Marlieske Doorn adding mandolin and fiddle to Neile H. Coe III’s pickin’ and singin’ The single veers into traditional folk and bluegrass territory. Streets of Laredo is an American ballad descended from the 18th century Irish folk song The Unfortunate Rake. The Banty Holler take is stripped down and earthy-sounding, thanks to the engineering work of Hans Hannemann at Twang Wolf and the live, single-take recording approach.
Neile H. has been dumb-assing across Europe since leaving his hometown of Chicago as a teenager, engaging in only the sexiest of employment such as dishwasher, waiter, callcenter agent, salesrep and teacher in Rimini, Dublin, Stockholm, Wroclaw and Rotterdam.
His passion for bare-bones blues, country and rock n’ roll is the drivin’ force behind Banty Holler’s off-brand Americana. Banty Holler tours across the Benelux, playing any dive-bar, club or festival where bonafide Roots music is served.
Banty Holler has been featured on the following radio shows: Undercover, Country Behind the Dykes, Landslide, Red Rooster, The Blueprint, Gonzo’s Return and more.
