About the Band

Hollowdog Performing Live at the NWPP Walkathon 2017Hollowdog is a band of brothers united in creating inspired enthusiasm, much of it original. They share a musical DNA that includes a wide range of influences, an aesthetic that was born and developed listening to the artists of the 60's and 70's who created music without regard for labels or genre.

Hollowdog plays what they feel, with each member imparting his own narrative to complete the final arrangement. You can hear and feel these influences in both the original music they create and the covers they choose to play.


Growing up in opposite ends of California, Hollowdog’s principle songwriters Rich Norkunas and Jon Martz reflect that esthetic. Rich’s musical DNA is steeped in the Southern California sound of CSNY, Jackson Browne and the Byrds while Jon's music has it’s roots in the Grateful Dead, Hot Tuna, Sons of Champlin and other Bay Area Bands. In the ensuing years, both Jon and Rich expanded their tastes to everything from jazz to reggae.

These eclectic influences when combined with their band mates, Chris Widenhofer, and Scott Sobel, create a distinct musical lineage to produce Hollowdog’s slightly familiar but totally original sound.

Though their music can be hard to pin down, it’s simply a modern fusion of the California Rock of Laurel Canyon meeting the San Francisco Sound of Golden Gate Park, with a dash of the Northwest indie-music vibe.
