Johnny Hollow, often abbreviated JH, is a Canadian electronic music group formed in 2001 in Guelph. The band is composed of singer Janine White, digital artist Vincent Marcone, cellist Kitty Thompson and guitarist Steve Hiehn.

Founding of the band[edit]

Marcone, known for his wide range of digital artwork over almost a decade, launched his website My Pet Skeleton. White was asked by Marcone to design the sound effects. Meanwhile, White and Thompson were also experimenting in their recording studio. They had sessions as gig musicians, but these weren't satisfying enough for them. My Pet Skeleton quickly rose to the forefront of the web hall of fame. The trio was heavily encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive response of the web audience, and decided to form an alliance. Their first material was presented on the My Pet Skeleton website.

Debut[edit]

In March 2003, Johnny Hollow launched their own small teaser site to announce the release of their first self-produced full length album. Within one month of the album's release, the band was invited to contribute their first single named 'Bag of Snow' to D-Side's sampler disc, to be in the company of artists like Martin Gore of Depeche Mode, Lisa Gerrard of Dead Can Dance, Robin Guthrie of the Cocteau Twins, Type O Negative, The Cramps and Goldfrapp, who all had a strong influence on the band.
