¡HA¡ is the new band I’ve formed with some fellow musicians here in Albany. When Rob O’Connor (Olsen Court, The Weird Apples) came up to Albany to do an internship, I was able to introduce him to two of my close college friends, Matt DeLaus (DeadLight Poets) and Alan Sweet. Matt and I began writing songs together, and found that the intricate guitar riffs and melodies he was writing blended almost perfectly with my songwriting style and vocal melodies. After bringing these songs to Rob and Alan, we’ve found that we produce a sound similar to indie rock, but with influences from blues and funk. I like to tell people we sound like My Morning Jacket and The Strokes playing a set together behind Elvis Costello. The four of us have been working hard, and ¡HA¡ is planning on making it’s live debut at the Low Beat in Albany, NY on April 10th. We plan to begin recording a demo shortly after that, and it should be released within the year. I’m very excited to get this band going, and I can’t wait to show ya’ll what we got!
