Introducing The Connection (Winter 2012)



The Connection was formed in 2010 by Mike Wright Brady, a.k.a. "Onion" drummer from the late 1990's power pop indie band HUMMMR, along with producer/ musician Christian James Hand also from HUMMMR.

Together, they have drawn from influences such as Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Elvis Costello, Phil Collins, The Beatles, The Jam, Jimmy Eat World, Third Eye Blind, Goo Goo Dolls, The Who, and Oasis, among others. When asked what The Connection sounds like, Onion responded, "Imagine taking the best parts of all your favorite songs, from all your favorite bands, and compiling them together. That's what I hope The Connection is for you and me. I want to make the records that are missing from my collection. I think I stole that from Bruce, but I like it!"

The Connection went into the studio in late 2010 to work on their soon to be released debut record. It is a collection of songs 10 years in the making. Right around the same time Onion and Christian enlisted the help of fellow musicians and friends to form the band. Their hopeful, yet, frantic storytelling is delivered with power and passion to create a live show that people can't help but "connect" with.
