Background:

"We write pretty songs about ugly things," says Kelley Haynes, who co-founded Blind Mountain Holler with Scotty Bones. "We began unofficially sometime in 2010 during torrid drug addicted homelessness on the streets of San Francisco. In between trips to jail and the guitar being in the pawn shop, which was the only thing we hadn't sold, we wrote songs."

"Fast forward through getting clean, moving to the great city of San Diego, breaking up and not speaking for years, new relationships, and you arrive at the official beginning of Blind Mountain Holler in the winter
of 2016."

Based in North County, the band also features Scotty's wife Amanda Bones on percussion and vocals.
