Sleepy Hollow: Home

Sleepy Hollow have sold thousands of copies of their EP and "Goin' Over" full-length CD worldwide since their inception in 1999. They are a tough group to label - delving in the realms of Acid Rock, Prog, and Metal, with passages more reminiscent of jazz or classical than rock music. The main lineup of Guitar, Bass, Drums, and Keyboards (with band members sharing vocal duties) is often augmented by instances of acoustic folky or classical instruments, such as flute. Their long-awaited album "Legend" - featuring an eclectic 2 hrs. of music - has been released July 2010, following a one-disc "heavy metal" version (featuring alternate mixes and non-album tracks) entitled "the Lazarus Project" out December 2008. Guitarist Matt "the Mole" Schwarz has performed solo at Renaissance Faires and elsewhere, playing traditional ballads and early music on harp, guitar, mandola, flute, recorder, etc. He has released a CD of acoustic folk songs (traditional and original) and one of solo harp instrumentals. He also performed and recorded with Sarabande (who combine Renaissance music with Irish jigs & reels and wild gypsy tunes), with Castle Musicale (a medieval/renaissance group), and played harp in the Castle Rock Orchestra (which debuted a number of Matt's orchestral works, including the finale to his symphony).  Matt is currently playing guitar in Denver rock band Odin's Other Eye and new progressive metal group Sold Future.

Matt Schwarz string quartet parts available - June 12, 2017

You can now purchase parts for Sleepy Hollow guitarist Matt Schwarz's classical string quartet.  A full 20-minute, four-movement piece, with a classical style but with the influences of rock, metal, and European folk music (there's a gypsy-violin melody in the first movement).  There are (computer generated) sound samples of the various movements with the various string parts, so you can get an idea of what it sounds like - not an attempt to break from the classical tradition like much of the "classical" music of the last century, but a classical piece that rocks!

Currently available in performing parts ($2 each), the full score will be up later.
