The Heavy Hours

For fans of:The Black Keys, The Lumineers, Kings of Leon

We're The Heavy Hours. Four friends from Ohio that started playing music in an abandoned house somewhere in the Cincinnati suburbs. We didn't know any songs so we started writing our own. Band practice would start at midnight and end at 3:00am; we'd make noise, order pizza, and argue about everything we could think of.We started writing and recording; we wrote music that was based off of our musical capabilities and instincts, we recorded that music and after listening back to it, we decided "hmm, we gotta do that again..." So, we wrote some more; this time we were writing to make music we wanted to hear but hadn't yet, combining influences from bands we loved and experimenting with new approaches. We recorded a bunch of songs on a farm in Virginia with our good friends, the music got passed around and one day we got a call from Dan Auerbach, and he said "hmm, let's do that again..."Simone Felice from the Catskills in New York called us as well, he said the same thing; he heard the music we had been making and saw a vision for something we hadn't yet created.After writing a hundred songs over the course of three years, it seems to be the right time to share with the world and let listeners join the ongoing musical journey of The Heavy Hours.
