Why hire Happygolovely?
Initially starting as a side project for Ben Garrett & Winslow Leach, AMERICAN YOUTH, has quickly become an outlet for pursuing excellent musicianship, melodies, and songs that will have lasting power. As a band we believe that performance is the ultimate form of expression, which is why we deliberately make every show energetic, musically sound, and exciting.
<<< In an industry of look-a-likes, sound-a-likes, and shallow creativity,AMERICAN YOUTH, is taking a confident leap towards creating artistic, catchy, and meaningful music that breaks the cliche mold. Expect energy, ruckus, and catchy indie-pop melodies from this Midwest outfit. >>>
