American rock & roll. It's a genre that's thrived for more than 50 years, fueled by a long line of true believers — from Buddy Holly to Tom Petty to Bruce Springsteen — with electric guitars in their hands and stages beneath their feet.
Andrew Leahey & the Homestead are part of that loud, lively tradition. Led by singer, songwriter, and lead guitarist Andrew Leahey, the band makes modern music for roots-rockers and pop fans alike, mixing super-sized hooks with ringing guitar chords, Hammond organ, and stacked vocal harmonies. It's music that nods to the past while still pushing forward, finding new life in a sound that's been blasting out of car stereos ever since the invention of FM radio. Rolling Stone calls Leahey's sound "heartland rock." Billboard calls it "southern-fried rock/soul." The songwriter himself just calls it rock & roll.
