JJ and The Pillars - Eva B. Ross

JJ and The Pillars - Howl (Feat. Alyssa Morrissey).

Background from JJ and The Pillars - In early 2017, we began recording our second album, Daisy, with producer Kevin Dietz (The Cranberries, The Glorious Sons, Circa Survive.) The resulting effort is the band’s best work to date, full of strong songwriting, energetic performances, and powerful delivery.

Our new single, “Howl,” marks a change in my writing style and features the powerful voice of country singer, Alyssa Morrissey. Adding a refined  southern flair counterpoint to our feverish pop sound.

“Howl” is about finding someone that makes you feel free, not afraid to be yourself around them. We have always been very comfortable both on/off stage together. Alyssa was always the country girl, while I’m the rock guy. We wanted to write a song about our relationship that was perfect for both of us.

Daisy is slated for release this fall and will be performed in its entirety live at Toronto’s Lee’s Palace on October 5th, featuring special guests Olivia and The Creepy Crawlies. TWITTER.

'Howl' is a refined alt rocker, with some beguiling dual vocals as Alyssa Morrissey adds just a little of an Americana dimension to this fabulous song. As a teaser for the 'Daisy' album this is splendid, as it keeps us guessing where the band might take us next.


Eva B. Ross - Messy.

'Messy 'somehow slipped through our net a couple of weeks back, (so thanks for the polite reminder August!). A bright upbeat and very pleasing pop song with tinges of Nashville in the musical backdrop, as debut singles go, this is spectacular and very contagious.
