Mulholland Stop and Start Again

Mulholland Stop and Start Again




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!

“It’s a great song”Greg Prebble, Hauraki

“Mulholland is an artist very dear to us here at KIWI FM, we view him as one of the most gifted musicians in New Zealand and as such take every opportunity we can to support him and his music” – Tim Homer, Kiwi FM

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

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions.

Having satirised British democracy with such devastating effect, Armando Iannucci has now turned his lens on the dangers inherent in Soviet authoritarianism. Every gag is girdled with fear and the bleak humour is so pitch black it could only have been pumped from deep underground. More>>

"You only get a singer like this once in a generation or two," commented Wynton Marsalis, who has repeatedly hired her to front his jazz orchestra and mounted a 25 foot high portrait of her on the exterior of Lincoln Center. “She radiates authority. She has poise, elegance, soul, humour, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth, and grace.” More>>

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. The latest incarnation of this six-strong male singing group includes Kiwi Christopher Bruerton, and it was a delight to hear him sing the solo on the achingly beautiful My Love Is like a Red, Red Rose.
