Formerly known as Holler, Zoey’s closet is a four piece Alternative Rock Band hailing from the Canadian Prairies.
“Zoey was the name of my first electric ‘gigging’ piano. She was a Roland MK80 with the most beautiful Rhodes and Wurlitzer sounds ever. The closet is where I spend most of my time recording vocal tracks and laying down new song ideas. It’s a 4x6 box that Brad and I built for the recording studio that we have. A few Christmas lights and voila, it’s like my second home.” Trish Evans.
For The Recor
Zoey's Closet is and has always been an independent band looking for recognition as well as representation. When given the opportunity to showcase their songs both live and on air, the music has shown itself extremely well busting into music charts with ease
At Garageband.com Zoey’s Closet (Holler) hold the #14 spot for song 'On and On' as best alternative rock song of ALL TIME. They also hit other genres' top 10 with more than one of their singles. PrinceGeorge’s 94XFM kept them in the top 40 for 5 months with two singles hitting at #2 and #5. Regina’s 104.9FM The Wolf added Holler to their regular rotation creating another top 10 that created such a buzz, it launched the band to Toronto and across international borders. Sioux City Iowa’s Z95 radio station is awaiting the release of Dear Diary to feed the Holler fans, as the previous album was very popular with their audiences, reaching top spots as well. Seattle’s web station The Edge,had single On and On’ as one of their most requested.
Zoey’s Closet (as Holler) has showcased at the legendary Trubadour in Hollywood C.A. and played a private showcase in NYC. CD sales have reflected the band’s popularity as they held the #1 best seller for 6 weeks in a row at the local CDplus store in Regina, outselling Nickleback and legendary Johnny Cash. Prairies North magazine (spring 2007) named the band in their Top 50 Rising Stars.
Zoey’s Closet is releasing their second album 2 ½ years entitled Dear Diary in September of 2007. The album is a fusion of experiences from a band that has seen unusually bad luck in their development. From finding out that their manager was an ex-convict for multi million dollar fraud charges, who used the hopes of young indie bands as nothing short of a tax credit, to guitarist Brad Taylor narrowly escaping injury by a girl that jumped from the roof of their 21story hotel in Toronto during Canadian Music Week,this album is packed full of meaning as well as angst. Punchy guitar riff work, solid beats and powerfully sweet vocals are still the forefront in creating Zoey’sCloset’s unique and edgy sound. Some of the tracks for Dear Diary were recorded at Bennett Studios in New Jersey, and a few at MCC Studio in Calgary, but the majority of the record was recorded, produced and engineered primarily out of Hollermusic Studios, the small studio that Brad and Trish own. Relying mostly on themselves, Zoey’s Closet is able to move forward independently. As a result, Zoey’s Closet has greater confidence and is focused on a successful career in music.
