CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Hill William / Holler Boys 7" Bundle

Tyrant Books, Holler Presents and Fat Possum teamed up to bring you this limited edition book and 7" package. Scott McClanahan's writing has drawn comparisons to the absurdist humor of National Book Award finalist George Saunders and the southern home-spun melancholy of Larry Brown and Breece D'J Pancake. We present his latest book, Hill William, based on Scott's childhood in rural West Virginia, along with a 7" from his band, Holler Boys. Scott and Holler Presents co-founder Chris Oxley play folk filtered through an Appalachian fever dream. Sometimes that sound is a gentle prayer; sometimes a shrill, isolated scream. Additionally, Scott has narrated an audiobook of Hill William, automatically downloaded upon purchase of book and 7" package, or available separately. Books are signed and numbered by author. Cover art for 7" generously provided by photographer Stacy Kranitz. Limited edition of 300.
