Huckleberry Binge is the collaboration of upstate New York musicians Jonah Simonak and William Meyer, San Fransisco-based drummer Jad Quesada-Khoury, and guitarist Gage Lyons from coastal Maine.
Prior to the conception of Huckleberry Binge, Meyer was the leader of a successful New Paltz band called Urban Sprawl that focused on upbeat and complex musicianship, coupled with political, often scintillating and witty lyricism. Prior to Huckleberry Binge, Simonak focused on solo performances and acoustic, DIY recording with the addition of computer-generated instrumentation, reversed resonance, and subtle, ambient intonations. Quesada-Khoury played heavy drums in a San Francisco-based punk/classic rock group Shotgun before joining forces with Huck. Lyons has (until recently joining Huck) kept himself busy locally with home recordings and solo performances around midcoast Maine.
Together the group explores the sometimes forgotten lives of America's fading heroes, heroines and criminals. In 'Desperado,' the life of John Dillinger is chronicled and rethought. In 'Pacific Locomotion,' Amelia Earhart's ill-fated journey is retold through the eyes a young boy, hiding in the trees with a pair of binoculars. However, their songwriting is certainly not limited to the partially fictionalized stories of 20th Century Americana. 'Bullshit,' a song Meyer penned, tells the story of an alcoholic father, and his son's plea for him not to forget the son he'd been neglecting due to his addiction. In Simonak's 'Witch's Circle,' he recalls what it's like to grow up in a small town and the things one conjures up with an overacting imagination. It additionally tells of the almost intrinsic, often hereditary yearning for military service and the price one pays for doing so. A song of Lyons's, 'Oh Glorious Day,' illustrates the duality of masculinity and femininity under the governance of the Sun. Quesada-Khoury holds it down on the skins like nobody's business.
Huckleberry Binge is a fledgling band, but have recently been playing successful shows with a plethora of various gifted musicians in Amherst and Northampton MA, as well as Manhattan, Albany, and Woodstock NY. Will, Jonah, Jad, and Gage's favorite foods are coffee, medium-spice buffalo wings, weed, and vegetables respectively. Look for them soon in your state.
