Musicians you should know: Hellbound Hepcats

We stumble upon this over at When I Got The Music, check them out. Post below.

This weeks musician you should know is the Montreal based rockabilly band the Hellbound Hepcats. I first noticed them when I heard a small clip of one of their songs on a commercial for the show Degrassi. I loved the sound, and I had to find out who it was. I found the few songs that were posted and fell in love with their 50s Rock & Roll style. A few months after discovering the band I found out they were coming to town, I just had to go see them. The 3 piece band just blew me and my cousin away. I have never heard or seen such a small band (They have 1 guitar, a drummer with a minimal kit, and a stand up bass) make so much sound. After the show I bought their debut on Stomp Records, damn I’m so glad I did it is so good!

Why should you know the Hellbound Hepcats? Listening to this band is like stepping into a time machine and entering the 1950s, where rock ‘n’ roll started. Alex Brown’s voice is just amazing, and he sounds so close to Elvis you would think he was a reincarnation. The twangy guitar and Jordan Peddiet’s stand up bass really gives the band its retro inspired sound, Sylvain Lemire’s snare heavy drums round out the sound. The band has a lot of experience playing live shows, and it really comes across when you see this extremely tight band in person. I can’t help but want to dance when I hear this amazing band. If you are looking for something different then the current mainstream music I highly suggest you give the Hellbound Hepcats a listen.
