I love words. I love how they sound strung together. I was pretty proud of my self when I thought of using Oh Hey Style as my business name. The three words sound pretty nice together. Smash Boom Pow are three other words that sound pretty cute together. They also happen to be the name of a local up and coming 3 piece rock band. I came across them by way of Finch’s teahouse, because the lead singer works there and is a person with a striking face and good hair. I asked Ulysses if I could cut his hair and take a few photos for my website. Lucky for me he obliged.
- He lives with AND plays in his band with his younger brother. They are 6 years apart and so growing up they weren’t as close as they are now.
- I was suprised when he said that the Beatles are one of his early musical influences. He played the cello until he picked up the guitar, and plays the piano too.
- His inpiration comes from all over. “its not like I write an album of love songs” He spends a lot of time writing in a journal and is able to create melodies for almost anything that he writes and then transfer it to guitar. “all of the processes are familiar enough that is is easy to start from anyone of them.”
- He describes the music as loud, he says his brother is a “beast on the drums and mild in person”.
Of course I had to give a listen to them before writting this post. I was happy I did. You should give a listen too! http://www.alldayboompow.comSmash Boom Pow is playing Friday October, 24th for the Biltmore‘s Hustle Fridays. The collaboration of art and music sounds “SMASH”ing!
