PRESS RELEASE:

One of New Zealand’s most talented composer, musician, sound engineer and “visionary” MULHOLLAND will release his sophomore album Stop And Start Again, this coming Friday 5th September 2014.

The album is all penned and performed by Jol, with extra drum duties taken care of by Alastair Deverick (boycrush/Lawrence Arabia) and features 11 melodic and assured tracks including the first single, the alt hit “Cry If You Want To”, plus second single, the optimistic guitar anthem “Loneliness For Free”, which can currently be heard across New Zealand’s airwaves!

To celebrate the release MULHOLLAND is taking the show on the road this October with the help of live band Mike Hall (bass/vox), Matthias Jordan (keys/vox) (Pluto/Night Choir) and Scott Mason on drums (Gasoline Cowboy).

“Jol Mulholland’s beats are violent. That first bass drum hits you like a locomotive dragging you across railway-sleeper hi-hats. Tonight’s steam-powered percussion is rolling out of a bulky, veneered drum machine that forms the rhythmic ballast across which Jol lays his melodic rails.” – Nick Atkinson

The Christchurch born prolific songwriter has been in well-known New Zealand bands Gasoline Cowboy and The Mots (alongside brothers Will and Eden) and has played with Anika Moa, Chris Knox, Liam Finn, Laurence Arabia, Connan Mockasin, Andrew Keoghan, Eden Mulholland, Lindon Puffin and Nightchoir to name just a few, he has been part of The Lab recording studio in Mt Eden, Auckland, as a producer, engineer, song-writer and musician. Jol has a reputation as a technically capable and creatively prolific asset to any musical project. He has recently moved to Auckland after a two year musical stint in New York City where he played alongside Liam Finn. “I’ve always really admired Jol as a musician and he really is untameable. What he thinks goes straight to his fingers, and it’s beautiful. I’m very turned on by his ability.” -Liam Finn

“Mulholland is a master of the smart, grunty hook, and confidence oozes from every burnished chord.” - Grant Smithies
