JPR Live Session: Empty Houses

Sep 2, 2016

Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, Empty Houses is an indie pop band with a strong retro flavor that borrows from the iconic sounds of Motown and Phil Spector. The band was formed by multi-instrumentalists Dave Mackinder and Adam Mercer, both of pop-punkers Fireworks, and singer Ali Shea.

Leaving behind the punk and following the lead of Shea's classic vocal quality, Empty Houses released a well-received self-titled EP in early 2015, and they secured Grammy-winning producer/engineer Graham Marsh to produce their first full-length. Brimming with summery nostalgia, Daydream was issued by the Sargent House label in June of 2016.
