The original Songs of The Hollering Pines artfully present stories of long nights, short lives, and spilled chances. Sisters Kiki Jane Sieger and Marie Bradshaw build on the blood-tight harmonies of the past while M. Horton Smith's mandolin sweetens the sound. Drummer Daniel Young sings and lays down the back beat, and Dylan Schorer’s electric and lap steel guitar embroidery rounds things out, pulling The Hollering Pines closer to the dim lights and thick smoke of a neon roadhouse. Inspired by Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch and Buddy Miller, Their brand of Americana draws on the strength of a tube driven radio signal, parting the sea of static, bouncing off of heaven and back to earth.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"The songs’ lyrics are poetic in their depiction of everyday life, the kind found at the bottom of a bottle, in a smoky bar or at the end of a lonely dirt road. Plaintive songs such as “Rainy Day Woman,” about loving someone through the hard-luck times as well as the good, and “Oh Mama,” about an adult woman meeting the mother who abandoned her when she was a child, are masterfully crafted with evocative lyrics that could make Lucinda Williams pull out a hankie." - Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly
"As the co-frontwomen of The Hollering Pines, Utah-based sisters Kiki Jane Buehner and Marie Bradshaw bring what their bio calls "blood tight harmonies" to the potent Americana and alt-country songs on their self-penned debut album Long Nights, Short Lives and Spilled Chances (out now). And once you hear their entwined vocals it's hard to argue otherwise. Backed by drummer/backing vocalist Dan Buehner and fine guitarist Dylan Schorer, Kiki Jane (now that's a name) and Marie rustle up overtones of Gillian Welch and Lucinda Williams, sweetly turned roadhouse balladry infused with a mellow country twang and Schorer's stark, lap-steel guitar moans. Even a song titled "Rock and Roll" becomes a roadhouse jukebox slow dance. Loverly stuff. Click through below for a listen to "Oh Mama" - Direct Current Music
"Local band The Hollering Pines are made up of the sister-sister vocal act of Kiki Jane Buehner and Marie Bradshaw on guitar and bass guitar, respectively, along with drummer and singer Dan Buehner, and Dylan Schorer on electric guitar. Together, they have created an entrancing narrative about long nights, short lives and spilled chances—hence the title of the album. Long Nights was recorded live in Provo, Utah. It is characterized by upbeat and bluesy tracks like “Cadillac” and more old-country and modern folk songs like “Something on My Mind.” It may be the haunting poetic lyrics, or the cool, collective twang, but either way, these country folk are sure to keep your foot bouncing and your head swaying from start to finish." – Lizz Corrigan, Slug Magazine
"Sisters Kiki Jane Buehner and Marie Bradshaw head up this catchy, crooning local band that distinguishes itself with a delightful touch of country twang. The Americana-inspired tracks of The Hollering Pines album "Long Nights, Short Lives and Spilled Changes" are filled with electric and lap steel guitar and perfect harmonies." - NewsCastic.com
"The Hollering Pines are a wonderful, hot new country band, who have created a superb debut album, which should make many country fans happy. Best of all The Hollering Pines have two exciting female country singers, who maybe destined for big things. The songwriting on the CD [Long Nights, Short Lives & Spilled Chances] is of a very high standard." Paul Riley, Country Music People
"Everything sisters Marie Bradshaw and Kiki Buehner touch turns to gold, as vocalists in their former acoustic outfit The Folka Dots and, now, in electric Americana/roots quartet The Hollering Pines. Taking their band name from a song by folk singer Gillian Welch, The Hollering Pines draw influence from country greats like Hank Williams and The Louvin Brothers. Well-known local musicians Dan Buehner (of the now-disbanded The Trappers) and The Lower Lights’ Dylan Schorer complete the lineup, adding drums, harmonica, dobro, lap steel and more to Bradshaw and Kiki Buehner’s guitar/bass foundation. The Hollering Pines’ debut full-length album, Long Nights, Short Lives & Spilled Chances—released in September—was one of 2013’s best albums. Utah is lucky these country crooners haven’t decided to fly away to Nashville (yet)." - Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly
"The Hollering Pines' album Long Nights, Short Lives and Spilled Chances is full of lessons and musings on love and the hardships we all face day to day within ourselves and with those we know and love. Our Soundwaves host, Dan Nailen is privy to the raw, untethered emotion that The Hollering Pines possess with their breathtaking interpretation of the Americana genre." - Soundwaves From The Underground Listen to Episode Here
"You might not yet know the name The Hollering Pines, but chances are you’ve heard the members of the band play at some point or another if you spend much time seeing live music in Utah. It’s particularly true if you’re a fan of heartfelt country, folk and rock, as well as angelic harmonies. The band is made up of sisters Kiki Jane Buehner and Marie Bradshaw, formerly of long-running fave The Folka Dots, on guitar and bass and those mesmerizing harmonies, as well as Dan Buehner on drums and vocals and guitar ace Dylan Schorer coloring around the edges with his stabbing electric and smooth lap-steel guitar. In the past several months, they’ve shared stages with fellow roots-based acts like Dwight Yoakam, Neko Case and Dave Alvin, and the honing of their chops comes through on their debut album, Long Nights, Short Lives and Spilled Chances." - Dan Dailen, slcene.com Hear Dan Talk The Hollering Pines on KUER
