Jeff Hollan (Piano/Vocals)
Jeff grew up in a small southern Indiana town surrounded by three neighbors who all played in local bands. He would spend most of his summers listening to their practices and singing along. His dad bought him his first guitar and bluegrass lessons at the age of 7. Jeff started singing in church by the age of ten learning harmony on Southern Gospel songs. Jeff played trumpet in his high school band and for the University of Kentucky. After college he joined Eastern Sky and performed with Darin Cunningham for 10 years at Broomsage Ranch. Jeff has performed with many national acts such as Joe Diffie, Sawyer brown, Tim Mcgraw, Kenny Chesney and Diamond Rio. After Eastern Sky he switched to bass guitar until joining HotWired as the fulltime keyboardist and vocalist. Jeff was once asked in an interview, "Who are your influences?" His answer? "I love the national acts…don’t get me wrong. Kiss, Restless Heart, Alabama were always big with me. But it’s the local guys who influence me the most. Who play for the love of music and give their heart and soul every weekend. That’s the people who you really learn things from."
