Biography

Formed in 2012 with Alex Hoffer, Brad Surinak, Josh Hanchar, Maurice Jones and Kevin Davidson. The Humans have now assembled an impressive unit of sound makers that bring to life a mixture of Blues/Funk/Pop/Rock/ and Jam music. Together, the band shares over 60 years of music playing experience. This group is led by lead singer, Alex Hoffer and is his first venture in to steady band music after years as a solo artist. He, Brad Surinak, and Josh Hanchar were the beginnings of this funky band not even a year ago and after playing a few shows, they decided it was time to do some recording. Shortly thereafter, Maurice Jones and Kevin Davidson became part of the group and solidified the last touches to The Humans future sound.

In the first year of they're existence on the Chicago music scene, The Humans won the 312 Battle of The Bands at The Cubby Bear and earned their spot to play at the Summer Camp Music Festival in May of 2012 and were a part of a festival that had such bands as Jane's Addiction, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Gov't Mule and Uphree's McGee.

Alex Hoffer & THE HUMANS are now in production of their first album, "Awake & Still Dreaming", which upon completion will be available on iTunes and CDBaby. With the ability to captivate quickly, The Humans are as excited as their fans about the future and it's only just beginning.

Lyrics

Keep on Searching

Written By: Alex Hoffer

Now what I want to know,
is where we've gotta go,
in such a, hurry, hurry now.

Before it leaves your mind,
then you're stuck with time,
you can't, walk right, out that door.

We all - Have tried
But living is the only remedy in sight.
And our ego's - Keep us
From finding what we really need is a good, good love.

And I keep on searching.
And I keep on searching.
Yeah I keep on searching, oh, no, no, no.
But I keep on, I keep on.

There's love for everyone,
even when it runs,
and it gets, further and further away.

You never say a thing,
when you're saying nothing,
then you, get up and leave again.

We all - Have tried
Living is the only remedy in sight.
And our ego's - Keep us
From finding what we really need is a little bit of love.

And I keep on searching.
And I keep on searching.
Yeah I keep on searching oh, no, no, no.
But I keep on, I keep on.
