The essence of a pop punk sound with memorable hooks and vocals brought to you over emotion filled guitar riffs, solid bass, drums holding the heart/ soul. These songs will leave no question that the roots of music truly run through their blood.

Biography

Founded in November of 2008, what started as members of a band attempting to re-hash old songs eventually evolved into what is now Here’s To. After transforming older, acoustic-based songs into more powerful, rock-driven songs, founding members Dan Bateman, Tyler Heck, Colin Gallagher, and Chris Boone signed on two guitarists, Glenn Gomez and Guy Mitter. Powered by dual-threat guitars, melodic bass, and searing synthesizer sounds, Here’s To set out to writing, singing, and screaming anthems of days gone by, life as they live it now, and everything the future can possibly hold.

HERE’S TO comes on the scene with a satisfying mix of rock, punk approach, ballad feel and pop appeal. they also show their musicianship thru solid instrumentals and a vocalist that leaves his self on every song in their EP, LETTERS TO HILL VALLEY, HERE’S TO shows that not only are they hungry for the world to see what they have to offer, but to show that they’re musically a force to be wreckoned with. On this EP you take a musical journey with the inspiring rock love song like Entrees and Refills, which is a fan favorite, to their version of the power ballad with Radio Wonder. Letters to Hill Valley is just a preview of what these six guys have in store for their fans and future fans, but it’s their musician ship on this EP that shows they are here to show what music has been missing.

Letters to Hill Valley

Written By: D.Bateman(BMI), C. Boone(BMI), C. Gallagher(BMI Work #11718396)

Today
I realized
I’m getting much older
It’s not right
It’s not fair
If I could find away I’d take me back there

And I’d wake up
But I’m still dreaming
Finding a way
To right my right now

And I’d say this then
Yeah I’d do this when
Timing’s just a bit of luck
I’d rather roll the dice
Than give it up
And even when I change it all
I’d still be me but changed forever

Excuses
The pressure
Turning friends to foes
It held me under
The late nights
The parking lot lights
Turning foes to friends
Bloody lips
But I’d do it again

And I’d wake up
But I’m still dreaming
Finding a way
To right my right now

And I’d say this then
Yeah I’d do this when
Timing’s just a bit of luck
I’d rather roll the dice
Than give a fuck
And even when I change it all
I’d still be me but changed forever

I’m building a time machine
I’m flying away from everything
And when this clock tower strikes one more time
I’ll be in my Delorean

Space Between the Years

If you had just seconds left
Would you take it
Would you leave it
In a hiding place
Where no one knows just where to find them
Would you let them pass you by
Hang it up and wonder why
It had to be this way
And ponder all your past mistakes

You know its up to you
To take these moments
Make it worth it
You know it’s up to you
To go on
To grow on

So take your time
And live it up for one more day
It feels so right
The sun is brighter than I’ve ever seen it
Shine on you
It’s just an invitation to
The greatest life
The life you lead
Hold on to your memory

The time it takes to second guess
The time you’ve lost
The time you could have had to realize
And focus on the smiles around you
Will you take those baby steps
Focus on what you have left
And right to those who cared
Thank them for the time they shared

You know its up to you
To take these moments
Make it worth it
You know it’s up to you
To go on
To grow on

So take your time
And live it up for one more day
It feels so right
The sun is brighter than I’ve ever seen it
Shine on you
It’s just an invitation to
The greatest life
The life you lead
Hold on to your memory

When I wake up in this bed
I wonder what I’ll do
Will I know
Will I know
Will I know

So take your time
And live it up for one more day
It feels so right
The sun is brighter than I’ve ever seen it
Shine on you
It’s just an invitation to
The greatest life
The life you lead
Hold on to your memory

Radio Wonder

Written By: D.Bateman (BMI Work #11718394)

Here we go
Another night another song
Stuck in my head
Can’t get it out
I turn up the radio
It’s playing again

And I can’t wait
Another second
I can’t explain
The feelings that are running
Throughout and running within
This frequency
Is changing again

Funny how we change
We say it’s all we need
Just like the songs on the radio
Changing frequency

Changing lanes
Never seemed so fitting
This irony is fate
The ashtray overflows
With regrets and reminders

And I can’t wait
Another second
I can’t explain
The feelings that are running
Throughout and running within
This frequency
Is changing again

Funny how we change
We say it’s all we need
Just like the songs on the radio
Changing frequency

See the days all stay the same
They’re determined by a song
So I crank up the radio
And I hum it all night long

Funny how we change
It’s all we need
On the radio

On the radio

Entrees and Refills

Written By: D.Bateman (BMI),C. Gallagher (BMI Work #11718398)

Another lonely hour
Killed under rows of light
What have these nights come to
Entrees and refills
Coffee and menus

If tables could talk
Think of the stories
A hundred generations
Packed into a night
Bottomless wisdom from one who knows
No one but strangers
No one but strangers

If these chairs could listen
Think of the weight
Even a party of one won’t be alone tonight
Won’t be alone tonight

The rain’s coming down
It falls on your face
You blink when it burns
The feelings are erased
The tears spell it out
When mixed with the rain
And all you can hear
Is her calling out your name

Another smoky hour gone
And what’s there to show for it
These nights will never change
I fresh cup of coffee
One more in the pack
Maybe you’ll stay just a little bit longer

If tables could talk
Think of the stories
Watch endless patience
If you care to stay
These tables had it all
Heartbreak to romance
Pain into laughter
The pain turns to laughter

If these chairs could listen
Think of the weight
Even a party of one won’t be alone tonight
Won’t be alone tonight

The rain’s coming down
It falls on your face
You blink when it burns
The feelings are erased
The tears spell it out
When mixed with the rain
And all you can hear
Is her calling out your name

She’ll be gone faster than your last
She’ll be gone faster than your last cigarette
She’s burning out
She’s burning
Going
Fading away
