SPEAK are: Troupe Gammage (vocals/keys), Nick Hurt (guitars/vocals), Joey Delahoussaye (bass/vocals), and Jake Stewart (drums).
Always striving for original, innovative melodies SPEAK garnered noteworthy attention with their 2010 debut EP, Hear Here and received overwhelming industry praise. Austin Chronicle asserted they are “poised to change the musical landscape” and gave the quartet 4 stars, the publication’s highest rating, while The A.V. Club declared it “smooth electronic seduction, spiked with a little venom.” Their powerhouse synth-rock-pop anthems and infectious melodies have earned them honors like “Best New Band” at The Austin Music Awards where they were presented the award by the Talking Heads.
SPEAK has now released their highly anticipated debut full-length album, I Believe In Everything, on Modern Art Records/Atlantic Records. I Believe In Everything was produced by the sought-after Chris “Frenchie” Smith (JET, Dandy Warhols).
The 11-song set features the smash hit “Carrie” which SPEAK labelmates Miniature Tigers recently remixed. Download it here: www.hearspeakhere.com.
MTV’s Buzzworthy Blog asserts, “While their records are rooted in synth-laden dance-pop, lead singer Troupe Gammage’s vocals have more of an indie twang. In other words, SPEAK caters to both the hipsters and to the pop music lovers"
