Biography

Them Hills is a rock group from Nevada City, California. The band is composed of singer/guitarist Dan Elkan, drummer David Torch, and bassist Thaddeus Stoenner. Dan and Thad had played together in bands for years (Pocket For Corduroy & others) beginning in the late nineties, and after spending a few years apart began to conceptualize a group that would, with the addition of David on drums, eventually become Them Hills. When Dan returned from performing on tour with Hella for the better part of 2005, they were ready to start working. Songwriting began immediately, and the band had no intention of playing live until the material was fully realized, as to not have any outside feedback interfere with the process. Them Hills broke their silence with a handful of performances supporting The Advantage on the west coast in the fall of 2006, and has since been performing regularly around Northern California. Them Hills sound as they should: an amalgamation of 60s/70s classics and 80s pop gems—heard over the radio while strapped in their car seats as children—torn apart by the first rock records they purchased on their own in the 90s, and smoothed over by the new or rediscovered underground albums they began obsessing over in high school and up through today. Expect an example in the form of a Them Hills album sometime in 2007.
