Hollow Intent


Hollow Intent is a rock band with truly no defining singular genre based out of Wilmington, North Carolina. Riff heavy, high energy, and super dynamic, the band is making its presence very well known. Hollow Intent began when guitarist, Will Baker, and drummer, Mark Davis, started jamming together and the chemistry was undeniable. Shortly after, they brought on bassist, Shane Noren and guitarist, Wesley Seven and began developing an intense sound to holster relentless and seemingly endless supply of hook and groove driven riffs they had at their disposal. The group hit the ground running with fresh ideas, writing and sometimes finishing songs in a single session. They've created their own breed of infectious, hard rock and metal and they are releasing their EP "Monster" that showcases their current single, "Burn." More recently in May 2019, the group was nominated for 2019 Carolina Music Award's Best Rock Group and Best Rock Male for Will Baker.
