Things You Remember Most Aren't Things
Hey Leroy have the components of a typical band: three guys in their mid-twenties playing guitar, bass and drums. What is not typical is the resulting sound, best described as indie/acoustic rock. The influence of such artists as Elliot Smith and George Harrison can be heard from time to time in the songwriting of Nate Etchison and Tim Newman, the band's lead singer/guitarist and bassist. Rounded out by the rhythmically gifted, airtight percussionist Jared Newcomb, Hey Leroy aims to create music the listener feels like he remembers even if it's the first time it has been heard. Catchy hooks, great harmonies and heartfelt, sometimes thought-provoking lyrics are a few of the band's greatest assets. Based out of the near southwest suburbs of Chicago, the group has been busy these last eighteen months writing, recording and touring. Hey Leroy has compiled over twenty-five original pieces, seven of which can be heard on the band's debut EP, The Things You Remember Most Aren't Things.
