Dave and I got together as the Heddy Brothers back in early 2006 for a gig at Valentines. We were playing just cover tunes then - Flaming Lips, Eels, Meat Puppets, etc. When we reconstituted the band in September 2009, we picked up with the same old cover tunes, and also added a couple originals to our repertoire. These were just my first few compositions, but we decided then that we'd try to follow the path of an "all original" rock band. With a lot of support and encouragement from both Dave and Veronica, I began to put pen to paper and sketch out the cord progressions and lyrics for more originals. After about ten songs tumbled out, we began to look around for other players with hopes of binging the act together for public consumption. Dave met Chris Dogias via MySpace - Chris had his stuff posted to his page and Dave sent the link over to me for a listen. At the time, Chris happened to be looking for a band to play with. I remember the first night he came by Dave's house for a jam session back in December 2009; it was like the most awkward blind date you have ever been on. But Chris was so open to what we were doing, and so eager to play, we knew right away he was exactly what we were looking for. It was kinda like he dropped down from the sky and landed in Dave's living room with his guitar & amp, tuned up and ready to play. Karmic. The first time I met Chris Sousie was October 30th 2009. I remember it well; we were hanging out at Nick's place watching "The Big Lebowski" while the girls carved pumpkins for the Halloween Party. I found out then that he was a drummer, but I never really gave any thought to having him join the band until we started routing around for drummers in January 2010. I was able to get back in touch with him in February; turns out the guy has a veracious appetite for music and a mountain of enthusiasm for playing. By that time, we had moved the practice room into the garage because the band was getting too big, and too loud for the living room. That first night, he played (and froze) his ass off - we knew right away we had our band. When we met Cris and Chris, the songs were all half-done. These guys found every note, and every beat. Week after week, as we listened back to the recordings from rehearsals we could hear each tune taking shape. Dave put a ton of effort in to sound engineering and getting the recordings out to us every week so that we could listen back as we developed the "Heddy Brothers sound." This has been a key element for us - without his effort and encouragement, you would not be reading (or listening to) this right now. Assuming anyone has actually read this far down the page. So now we are looking to share our art with you. This is our humble expression of life and we hope you like it. And we want your feedback too - anytime, anywhere, for any reason - let us know what you think. The Heddy Brothers play songs about life!
