This Frontier Needs Heroes

Formed in 2007, when Brad’s last band broke up, his sister Jessica suggested that she play drums for him. He told her she wasn’t good enough. So she learned how to play tambourine, harmonica, ukulele, harp, and sing! Stripped down, lyrically driven, and influenced by the whole American catalog from Soul to Country, The Heroes outlaw revolutionary style is social commentary and an emotional blueprint for navigating through these wild times!  Now on tour across the US and Europe in support of their self released debut record, available on itunes in July, they are searching for mind blowing experiences of heroic proportions.
