    Here At Home

    Power Pop

    Making music that HE wants to hear is the main goal for Jeff Hanson, the Oakland-based singer, songwriter and guitarist who can be seen and heard around the Bay Area as part of the Power Pop trio “Here at Home.” Through more than 35 years of creating & playing music, this mid-western native persists in offering his unique POV to audiences all over the Bay area. There have been detours over the years with Jeff saddling up as a sideman with other artists here and there, but his solo efforts have become where he feels most at home. In fact, his first solo record was titled “Here At Home” paying homage to the then bourgeoning home recording community. “‘Here At Home’ became a loose descriptor of what I felt I wanted to do. I wrote a song by that title, and even named my bands after it,” says Hanson. The current iteration of this group features Tony Rosa on bass and Mark Skorlich on drums; two guys who really get where he’s coming from and know how to make a power trio sound big. Jeff’s DIY mentality goes back to one of his self-styled bands. “When one of my groups (the late, great Woolies) decided it was time to make a record, we felt we could do it ourselves if we only had the gear,” says Jeff. “I wound up getting into the deep end of the home recording pool, and have been happily splashing around there ever since.” Past efforts along his winding musical path include receiving a Billboard Award for Songwriting, and being featured on both KFOG and the dear old LIVE 105 — two of SF’s then premier commercial radio stations. Others achieved collegiate airplay. Jeff’s bands also opened shows during the early 90’s for some of the best and brightest in the Bay area’s original music scene, such as Counting Crows, Third Eye Blind, Train, Scott Miller’s Loud Family and others. “This was before any of those bands were signed,” says Jeff. “I miss what I consider to be the heyday of San Francisco’s original music scene, when the City was frequently scouted by LA-based record companies offering development deals and contracts. The opportunity for a career as a ‘recording artist’ was palpable. After all, the Bay area had given birth to wildly successful bands, from Journey to Metallica, from Huey Lewis and The News to Jellyfish, from The Grateful Dead to the Dead Kennedys. The brass ring felt fully reachable by so many of us at the time, and helped unify a potent, deeply-talented scene.” Jeff looks forward now with a heartfelt appreciation for the past. And while chasing a record deal is not necessarily on his agenda, he continues to step into clubland with new, fresh material as well as older personal faves wherever he’s allowed. Hanson has released two albums on his vanity label, JeffyPop Records, Here At Home and More Songs About Girls...For Guitar . Hanson’s music has jangly/aggressive electric guitars, full, fat vocal harmonies and the kind of catchy hooks that (hopefully) leave the listeners humming the tunes themselves after hearing them. “I’ve always felt that if I could get just one person to drive home after a show whistling one of my songs, I’ve done my job.” Born and raised in Wisconsin and before coming to California to finish college, Jeff used his experience in high school rock bands to tour with a working covers act who played 6-nighters throughout an 11 state area in the midwest. After moving west, he began siding with Chris Rowan, of the Rowan Brothers out of Marin county. He took songwriting classes from Bay Area music maven Bonnie Hayes, where he got a grip on the craft of songwriting. Currently, Hanson lives in Oakland. The “Here at Home” trio can be found all over clubs in the Bay Area – music fans and whistlers are welcome.

    Lender

    Alternative Rock

    Lender is a trio of SF Bay Area natives who started playing music together in high school. Their original sound drew largely on classic rock and jam band influences, then began to mix in a wide range of modern and alternative inspirations. The result is a unique blend of styles ranging from heavy psychedelic walls of sound, to soft melodic grooves, to floor pounding funk. Along with a strong rhythm section and catchy guitar riffs, you can always expect interesting lyrics and carefully crafted vocal harmonies. They’ve been called a mixture of Beck, The Grateful Dead and Radiohead, among many other influences. However it is immediately apparent Lender has created a sound that is all their own.

    Their first album "You Play Me" was produced at Ex'pression College in Emeryville, CA and released in 2014. Their second album "Dad Rock For Moms" was produced by J Jaffe at Studio D Recording in Sausalito, CA, and released in 2016.

    Their first music video "Take Your Time" was released in October 2017 and has been screened at film festivals across the country and abroad, including the Mill Valley Film Festival, Austin Music Video Festival, San Francisco Dance Film Festival, Kinsale Shark Awards in Ireland and more, winning numerous awards.
