The care and attention to detail evident in this song is truly stunning, with a production aesthetic as powerful and meditative as the miracle of life and family.

Zach Fletcher is a singer and songwriter from Ohio who enjoys incorporating the details of his life and experience into a unique form of folk-inspired musical catharsis. Following up on his very well-received "Ohio Reveries" collection from earlier this year, "Little Hollow" is a lush and ethereal ballad that reflects on Fletcher's latest and most important endeavor, fatherhood. This song is a note to his infant son Logan.

With a subject matter so dear to his heart, Zach adds delicate layers of violin, piano, and percussion to the primary acoustic guitar, allowing the arrangement to breathe and evolve in a slow and exquisite crescendo. The message is a simple one, serving as a reminder for any listener to keep hold of the light even in the darkest days. The care and attention to detail evident in this song is truly stunning, with a production aesthetic as powerful and meditative as the miracle of life and family.

Fletcher's musical focus in recent years has also included being the bandleader and creative force behind Moths in the Attic, but here he turns to the ageless craft of the solo singer/songwriter to fulfill a need for pure and raw musical expression. We wish Zack only the best for his new family, and look forward to hearing more of his sumptuous songwriting.
