"Tunes to Offer All Audiences"

"Two parts 90s melodic pop and two parts ethereal, funky feel-good rock, The Eighty 7s exemplify the melting pot of music taking hold of the current indie movement. With high-powered live shows and distinctive sound, this four-piece outfit has the tunes and class to offer all audiences frequenting New York's City's underground scene." - Liz Imler, Music Soldiers


"New and fresh and full of truth..."

...remember these guys. Their melodies transcend the mundane order and make you want to get in your car and just drive." - Jess Hodge, I Hear the City Call

Bio

The Eighty 7s are an NYC-based foursome fully formed in the summer of 2009. Drawing influence from such diverse acts as Kings of Leon, No Doubt, Suzanne Vega, and Fleetwood Mac, you have all the ingredients to turn the indie rock world on its head. Hailing from three boroughs, Hayley Smith (vocals), Ross Boykin (bass, vocals), Eric deLima Rubbe (drums, vocals), and Chris Bischoff (guitar, vocals, trumpet) have quickly gained attention for their infectious grooves, bubbling thick harmonies, and soaring pop melodies.

In less than a year’s time, this rapidly ascending quartet has played such legendary NYC venues as Crash Mansion, Arlene’s Grocery, and Trash Bar, and recently headlined at Sullivan Hall, taking home top honors at Gorilla Productions Battle of the Bands. Their music has been licensed for film (Unscripted, 2010 – Matt Landry & Gabe Cohen) and they are currently the subject of The Line-Up (Alison Li) a documentary style show airing on NYC television. After several long months in the studio and on stage, they are set to release their first EP, creating music that is by turns moody and melancholic, buoyant and blissful. Heavy rock riffs counter shimmering, reverb-laden vocals that perch precariously on top of driving bass lines – all adding up to radio-ready anthems that stay in your head for weeks.

With the foundations of their recent success intact, The Eighty 7s are poised to make 2010 the year they drive their music home to new fans everywhere.
