Feeling a bit camera shy


Hey Leroy share a common origin with many bands, a few friends having some drinks and making music. In the beginning Hey Leroy was just a side project for singer/songwriter Nate Etchison and drummer Jared Newcomb as they had just finished recording a disc with the post hardcore group Ten to Midnight. Those evening jam sessions with fellow singer/songwriter Tim Newman quickly turned into a full fledged band and Hey Leroy was born. With a full lineup and steady practice schedule the bands sound really started to take shape. The influence of artists such as George Harrison, Elliot Smith, and Death Cab for Cutie can be heard from time to time in the songwriting of Hey Leroy. Catchy hooks, great harmonies and heartfelt sometimes thought-provoking lyrics are a few of the bands strengths. Hey Leroy's music comes from life experiences, both the good and the bad.

Based out of the near southwest suburbs of Chicago, the group has played a number of local shows with a diverse group of bands. Hey Leroy has complied over twenty-five original pieces, seven of which can be heard on the band's debut 'EP "The Things You Remember Most Aren't Things." With the debut 'EP pressed and ready to go Hey Leroy are eager to share the music they poured thier hearts into with anyone who wants to listen.
