Album Notes
Following up on their well received 2010 EP "Sanctuary," Ventura California
based progressive rock band Scarlet Hollow spent 2 years working on
this epic concept album titled "What If Never Was."

Lead vocalist and lyricist Allison Vonbuelow states, "Its 10 individual songs
that completely stand on their own, but the first 9 are part of a larger picture
that tell the tale of a person’s spiritual and emotional journey as they try to
heal from the after effects of war." 
Guitarist Gregg Olson says, "We actually
didn't even realize we had a concept album going until we played a few of the
early demos for some friends and they pointed it out. They also said the music
reminded them of scenes form The Game of Thrones books and movies. It really
just took on a life of its own, as we never set out to make a concept album. It
just kind of happened that way." " There is also a lot of Norse, Celtic, and
Pagan blood flowing in our band, and I think we tapped into all that," says
Scarlet's bassist Jeff Mack.

“The level of musicianship is super high in
Scarlet Hollow, but never at the expense of emotion or the music. It sounds new
and fresh, but at the same time familiar. We are all super into the classic 70's
prog rock, hard rock, and even some folk bands. But we are also huge fans of the
modern progressive metal bands like Meshugga and Opeth, so it all comes out in
this hybrid kind of thing that I hope fans of both old and new, mellow and
heavy, light and dark, and decay and beauty will appreciate," says Drummer Diego
Grom Meraviglia.

“Along with one of the best album titles I’ve ever heard “What If Never Was,”
these guys have just about everything else going for them. Beautiful, honest
vocals and emotionally charged intuitive music with no elements lacking. It’s
the perfect mix of beauty and tension. Fans of Porcupine Tree will especially
- James Moore,

"I have been listening to your album "What If Never Was" all morning, and I do
have to say that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT ! This is my 4th time through and I'm sure
it will only keep opening up the more I listen to it. You all have created an
amazing experience. The production on this is super impressive.You have made
something that is timeless!"
