Hey Champ's roots can be traced outside of Chicago in nearby Rockford, where band members Saam Hagshenas (Vocals, Guitar) and Jonathan Marks (Drums) discovered their love of music at a young age. After Saam's graduation from law school, Jon's fellow Princeton music major Pete Dougherty (Synths) moved to Chicago, cementing the line-up of the group. more... Recently signed to Seattle based indie, Townie Records, Hey Champ's debut album, "Star," represents an amalgamation of several styles. The music incorporates influences from classical, jazz, and emo to the power-pop of Rockford's hometown heroes Cheap Trick and the synth-heavy productions of Giorgio Moroder and Trevor Horn. Their infectious sound is also reflected in their energetic live performances, which have led to them being named the “Best Discovery of Lollapalooza” by SPIN
