Lost Hollywood was born in 2005 from the influences of many classic bands including Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, Stone Temple Pilots, Foo Fighters and the Goo Goo Dolls. Like many garage or basement bands, Lost Hollywood started as a cover band but quick became obsessed with writing and recording original music. After many years and countless demos, the band released their first studio album in 2012 – the self-titled “Lost Hollywood” CD featuring hard driving guitars and an ‘80s vibe.
The 2016 release of What Lies Beneath twists and turns down a dramatically heavier and darker path from the first album yet surprises listeners with interspersed ballads and instrumentals that add a unique texture to the overall piece of work. Guitars remain front and center with notable bite and aggression giving this effort a more modern feel albeit with a nod to rock and roll traditions.
