Stand out set at CityBeat Festival of Beers
Hit Dog Hollar's set included a ridiculously catchy song called “The Battle of San Pasqual.” Frontman Austin Prince was a killer guitar player and vocalist, also playing a lap slide guitar and banjo at various points in the set.
Ambition is rewarded on new releases
San Diego-based Hit Dog Hollar is not yet a household name, but soon could be. The hard-rocking four-man outfit blends hard edged Americana and blues with the approach of modern hard rock outfits such as Leogun and Band of Skulls.
Hit Dog Hollar was born in 2010, when long-time friends Austin Prince, Dallas Mauricio, and Carter Chase began writing and recording songs in their hometown of San Diego, California. After a short stint as a trio, the band added bassist Jamie Latty in 2012. Hit Dog Hollar has opened for acts including P.O.D., Blackberry Smoke, Korn's Brian "Head" Welch, and the Beastie Boys' Mixmaster Mike; and they collaborated in the studio with legendary blues man Weepin’ Tommy Brown and multi-platinum artist Sonny Sandoval from P.O.D. In 2015, the band relocated to Nashville, Tennessee. They finished recording ten songs with Grammy-nominated producer Dan Hannon in Atlanta, Georgia in late 2017.
