The Hypochondriacs are: Josh Bravener (lead vocals/guitar), Connor Fox (lead guitar), Andrew DeMerchant (drums), Kelly Waterhouse (vocals/sax), Jeannine Gallant (vocals/trombone) and seasoned bass player Jamie Guitar, the Hypochondriacs have resurrected from the traditional country crypt a fresh and raw take to the standard genre. Though profoundly influenced by the likes of George Jones & Hank Williams through further inspection one will hear early Memphis rockabilly, a taste of New Orleans, 60's doo-wop, 70's folk-rock and all the way up to the ’80s cowpunk movement. Brace for impact: it’s a time of Reckoning. Welcome to HYPO NATION.
