Household Names

About Household Names: Songwriter and guitarist/vocalist Jason Garcia released "The Trouble With Being Nice" as a solo artist in 2000, which drew immediate comparisons to Elvis Costello, Suede, Oasis, the Kinks and Blur. After 2003's home-recorded "Hold On Tight!" EP, he found the perfect musical foil in bassist/vocalist Chris Peters, and together with drummer CJ Barker they recorded 2006's "Picture In My Head" of which The Austin Chronicle raved: "guitarist/vocalist Jason Garcia is fueled by the same unrequited aspirations as Big Star devotees like Matthew Sweet and Jellyfish...precision-tuned and oversoaked with hooks." "Only One", from that record, featured prominently in an episode of the ABC prime time series "What About Brian?", and several of its other tracks have been used by MTV and CNBC.

In 2008 the band, now with drummer Joey Spivey and guitarist Eric Roberts, began recording tracks for their third album, "Stories, No Names". Now counting the Killers, Band of Horses, Phoenix and Rogue Wave among their influences, the band's third album is their best and most developed record to date. As with the band's previous albums, "Stories, No Names" is co-produced with Lars Goransson (Blondie, The Cardigans) who adds the perfect amount of icing to the band's musical cake.
