Bio

LEATHERHAND GOT ITS START AS THREE BROTHERS IN A “BEATLE-ESQ” BAND PERFORMING AT THE SKI LODGES IN THE IMFAMOUS RESORT TOWN OF PARK CITY UTAH.

IN THEIR EARLY YEARS THESE THREE BROTHERS WERE FORTUNATE TO SEE LIVE ACTS AND POWERFUL MUSICAL INFLUENCES SUCH AS THE BEACH BOYS, THE ALMAN BROTHERS BAND, AND PEARL JAM.

MOTIVATED BY THE DESIRE FOR SUCCESS, THE BROTHERS MOVED TO NASHVILLE AND LEARNED THE TRUE ARE OF WRITING MUSIC. WHILE IN NASHVILLE THEY HAD THE AMAZING EXPERIENCE OF SEEING AND PLAYING ON A WEEKLY BASIS WITH THE LATE, GREAT, FATHER OF BLUEGRASS, “BILL MONROE”.

YEARS PASSED, AND NEW EXPERIENCES FORGED EACH BROTHER. JONATHAN DEAN WENT TO LA TO MAKE INDEPENDENT FILMS, J RUEBENFORD WENT TO ENGLAND TO STUDY, AND STONER ERICSON RETURNED TO SALT LAKE CITY TO MEDITATE AND SKI IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS.

THE BROTHERS REKINDLED THEIR PASSION FOR MUSIC IN THE FALL OF 2004 AND FORMED THE AUSTIN ROCK BAND “LEATHERHAND”. DAILY JAMMING, INTENSE REHEARSALS, AND DRIVING ROCK PERFORMANCES ONCE AGAIN DEVELOPED THE BROTHERS “LEATHER HANDS”.

THESE THREE MASTER MUSICIANS HAVE CREATED A LIVE SHOW THAT RIVALS ANY. FANS AND INDUSTRY INSIDERS HAVE CONSISTANTLY CALLED THEM ONE OF THE GREATEST LIVE BANDS THEY’VE EVER SEEN.

ONE OF VERY FEW BANDS TO PLAY WEEKLY ON THE INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN “SIXTH STREET” IN DOWNTOWN AUSTIN, LEATHERHAND INCREASED CLUB RECIEPTS BY TWO HUNDRED PERCENT IN SIX MONTHS, WHILE PLAYING ALL ORIGINAL MUSIC AT THEIR HOUSE GIG AT DARWINS PUB. WHICH IS UNHEARD OF FOR LOCAL SIXTH STREET BANDS.

THE LOCAL FOX AFFILIATE CHOSE LEATHERHAND TO BE FEATURED IN A FOX 7 PROMOTIONS COMMERCIAL TO DRIVE VIEWERSHIP TO THE LIVE MUSIC ON THE LOCAL MORNING SHOW. THE COMMERCIAL WAS PLAYED FOR 6 MONTHS IN A ONE MILLION PLUS MARKET AND HAS POTENTIALLY BEEN SEEN BY MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE THROUGH OUT THE GREATER AUSTIN AREA.

WITH A UNIQUE SOUND, FUSING JIMMI HENDRIX WITH PEARL JAM, LEATHERHAND LASHES OUT TO MAKE A NAME FOR THEMSELVES WITH ONE OF THE GREATEST LIVE SHOWS YOU WILL EVER WITNESS!
