Scott Hogan has been a working musician since he was 15. He toured as the bassist for the pop group Hanson for 4 years, which included a performance on the 98' Grammys and 5 performances on Late Night with David Letterman.
The band is influenced most by music from the 70's. We feel there was an abundance of creative music at that time and a lot of exploration of instruments and sound. We try to replicate that old school vibe.
