Additional Information

Hey Champ's roots can be traced outside of Chicago in nearby Rockford, where band members Saam Hagshenas (Vocals, Guitar) and Jonathan Marks (Vocals & Drums) discovered their love of music at a young age. After Saam's graduation from law school, the two reunite in Chicago under the Hey Champ moniker. Needing some additional help on the keys, Jonathan calls up his old Princeton chum Pete. The two met as outsiders at one of those tea and crumpet parties where everyone wears blazers and laughs through clenched teeth The band incorporates influences from disco, house and indie rock, while combining the raw energy of Cheap Trick and the synth-heavy productions of Giorgio Moroder and Trevor Horn.

 

The band kicked off 2011 by jumping right into the studio with MPG Breakthrough Producer of The Year 2011, Eliot James. With production credits including Two Door Cinema Club's Tourist History, Bloc Party's Silent Alarm, and the Kaiser Cheif's Off With Their Heads, James' previous efforts made him the perfect choice.
