"Artist Review: Caney Creek Heroes"

They say everything is bigger in Texas and local band Caney Creek Heroes out of New Caney, Texas is, without doubt, the 194 oz. steak of local Texan pop/punk.

If you have any inclination towards their noted influences: Fall Out Boy, Switchfoot, Blink182, and SUM 41, you really need to stop what you're doing and check these guys out. CCH's guitar riffs and vocals are most distinctly reminiscent of Fall Out Boy and New Found Glory: the beasts within this subset of pop/punk. Lead vocalist, Nick Fisher, never fails, though, to place his own little spin on that familiar sound, as can be heard in his brilliant use of falsetto in their song "Sleepless Night". "Sleepless Night" is, without a doubt, my personal favorite off their album "Forgetting Yesterday". The song is sincere, energetic, and just the perfect amount of radio-friendly. The entire album is about as tight as it could be with a wonderfully rich guitar sound that never fails to deliver the "axe-chills" with every riff. (axe-chills;goosebumps from killer, full-sounding guitar riffs).

So, take the steak challenge and have a listen to these guys. Their album, "Forgetting Yesterday" is available for download on their Band Profile page. They also have a few songs, including "Sleepless Night" streaming for you to check out.

Also, be on the lookout for independent short file "Bright Ideas". The film, which was shot in January should be making the festival circuit sometime this year and the buzz is that it will include music courtesy of CCH. - Bandhack


"Heroes spend Thursdays in Satellite"

With Fall Out Boy-inspired guitar riffs, Blink-182-esque vocals and a unique blend of lyrics and quirkiness comes local Houston punk powerhouse Caney Creek Heroes, who have big dreams and an even bigger show ahead of them.

The band’s trio of brothers David, Nick and Sebastien Fisher will be back at the UC Satellite today to promote and sell tickets for the Battle of the Bands and make animal balloons — a unique talent Nick taught his brothers.

“We are playing the Battle of the Bands at Fitzgerald’s on Feb. 20,” Nick Fisher said. “You should come see us. It’s going to be awesome.”

Based out of New Caney, Texas, the band consists of Canadian siblings: Nick, on vocals; Sebastien on lead guitar and vocals; and David on the rhythm guitar.

Also in the band are Shuja Tasin on the drums and Ivan Cagle, a UH graduate, on the bass guitar.

According to Sebastien and Nick, the band’s sound is influenced by Fall Out Boy and events that occured while they were growing up.

They have a full-length studio album, “Forgetting Yesterday,” that can be found on iTunes and is available at other online music stores.

“Nick and I write the music,” Sebastien said. “For this album we mostly used Nick’s older songs. I just changed the music.”

David described the influence he believes their music should have.

“ Our music tries to convey a positive message,” David said.“We are trying to encourage people with our lyrics. The Fisher brothers were raised in a Christian home and lived all over the globe from India and Mexico to Canada.”

After pushing through financial difficulties and finding a drummer through Craiglist, they have made a name for themselves in Texas through the Alt Texas Tour Terminatour.

The band’s plans for the future include filming a video for “Sleepless Night,” tour the west coast and record another album. The band hopes to get picked up by a record company “and get signed,” Nick Fisher said.

Caney Creek Heroes will be back in the UC Satellite on Feb. 17, to promote their upcoming shows with more music and balloon animals. - The Daily Cougar
