BAMM.tv Featured Artist: Tea Leaf Green

Posted on: No Comments

San Francisco’s Tea Leaf Green describe themselves as “newfangled Lost Boys, a traveling gang dedicated to seeking wisdom and experience in places both glorious and seedy”. This may sound opaque, but once you wrap your ears around their sound – playful, radio-ready yet adventurous pop-rock – you’ll get it. Don’t worry. It’s simply just “ultimately Rock and Roll”, they reflect, “improvisation with respect for the songs.”

Ready for another exclusive BAMM.tv Featured Artist? Introducing your new favorite band: Missouri’s musical sons Ha Ha Tonka

HHT_Lessons_promo

In 2001 two friends from West Plains, Missouri – Brian Roberts and Luke Long, both attending the same college – formed a group called Amsterband, soon going on to recruit drummer Robert Mueller. Mueller would be replaced by Lennon Bone in 2004, and the year before that saw the group add Brett Anderson (not the chap from Suede) to their roster. “Three of us (Lennon, Luke & myself) grew up in a small Missouri town (West Plains) together,” Brian says. “We met Brett in college at Southwest Missouri State University. Brett brings the melody. Lennon brings the talent. Luke brings the looks. And I bring up the back.”

It’s the return of our Featured Artist feature – and we’ve got an absolutely amazing band all set to fuel your February. Gather round and get ready to tame the beast that is Wild Child! We’ve got all sorts of exclusive stuff coming up over the next couple of weeks, starting with this in-depth interview. Enjoy …

How did the band get together?

Kelsey and I we touring together as part of the backing band for a Danish band called The Migrant. I was playing accordion and she was playing violin. We were on the road for 6 weeks and during that time we started writing songs in the van to pass the time. During one stop in SF we stayed with my cousin Evan and wrote “That’s What She Say” together. After that we really started cranking them out and by the time we got back to Austin, we decided we wanted to make a band and make a record. Next came a full band lineup and the album Pillow Talk.
