They are known for their upbeat melodies and whimsical lyrics; the band members, themselves, having once described their musical style as "wonky rock" and "fabloo rock".

Speak
Forever questing for innovation, SPEAK invoke timeless melodies in energetic, synth-laden anthems.

Frontman Troupe Gammage has been recording music since age 11. Mesmerized by the compositions in his favorite video games, he started creating his own using rudimentary computer software. Developing his sound through his study of electronic music and observation of his musician parents (Ernie Gammage and Christine Albert) and the Motown collection at home, Troupe released his first EP at age 16. He went on to release two more albums online garnering over 25,000 downloads to date. Gammage spent a year in University of Southern California’s music composition program before moving to Austin to pursue video game composition and voice acting.

After co-founding his own production company and gaining solid footing in the business through work on games for Playstation, XBox, Wii, and PC, Troupe has shifted his focus to pop powerhouse SPEAK. The band met through mutual friends in 2008, rising from the remnants of electro-pop band Jupiter-4. With Gammage join University of Texas students Nick Hurt (guitar) Joey Delahoussaye (bass) and Jake Stewart (drums). Hurt and Delahoussaye are guitar performance majors.

Since then, SPEAK has signed to Playing in Traffic Records and recorded their debut EP with producer Chris “Frenchie” Smith (JET, Dandy Warhols). Through Smith, Troupe landed a gig recording keys for JET’s new album Shaka Rock.

The band’s debut album EP, “Hear Here” has garnered serious attention, receiving highest 4-star honors from the Austin Chronicle, and great reviews across the board. Recently SPEAK was named Best New Band by the Austin Music Awards.

What people are saying about “Hear Here”
Austin Chronicle (4/4 stars) “[Hear Here is] poised to change the musical landscape…crank up the volume: The future just got a lot brighter”
AV Club (B+) “Smooth electronic seduction, spiked with a little venom”
Austinist “swimming in synth and innovative pop melodies”
Casey Shea - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Casey Shea
Casey Shea spent a handful of years fronting rock bands in Tallahassee and Nashville before setting out for New York City in January of 2004 to focus on a solo career. A gifted performer with undeniable charm, Casey delivers his songs in a unique way that earns him an audience's devotion…think Bill Murray meets John Lennon. Melody drives diverse songwriting that is at once quirky and heart wrenching, and the result is a rare treat that is both musically gratifying and raucously entertaining.

The charismatic front man has built a six piece band around his solo material where influences such as The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Beck and Tom Petty shine through in an original sound with an uncommon familiarity right off the bat.
