Scott Lucas (Whatever)
Ryan Harding (Drums)
from Chicago, IL
Local H is known for their blistering live shows and for pioneering the two-man band set-up -- frontman Scott Lucas covers both guitar and bass through an extra pick up in his guitar and drummer Ryan Harding pounds out the rest of the sound. While they have earned praise in the past for their catalog of clever concept albums, Local H are forgoing a singular theme on their new album -- Hey, Killer (out 4/14/15 on G&P Records) -- turning out a non-stop blast of straight-up, hooky, guitar-heavy rock songs -- each one catchier than the last. The band’s discography includes seven other studio albums, a live album, and a bunch of EPs. Harding joined Local H in 2013, after years spent playing in Minneapolis bands Left Brain Heart and Bruder, and fit right in. His first recording with Local H was a heavy, rocking reinterpretation of Lorde’s “Team,” title track of the EP released in 2014.

Battleme is the inner psyche and stage moniker of singer/songwriter Matt Drenik. His music is referred to as “slacker pop.” He is also a contributing member to LA’s The Forest Rangers featuring Katey Sagal and Bob Thiele. On his debut EP, the predominately lo-fi folk record Big Score, Drenik played, recorded and produced everything on his own. The record’s success allowed him to share the stage with the likes of Joe Ely and Joe Pug as a solo artist, in addition to having songs included on FX’s Sons of Anarchy.-
