Andrew Leahey & the Homestead


Andrew Leahey & the Homestead make music for city highways and open horizons, for pop fans and roots rockers, for the heart as well as the heartland.

They’re an American rock & roll band, bypassing the sub-genresand trends that come and go every decade and, instead, focusing on the anthemic, guitar-driven sound that’s been blasting out of car stereos at 65 mile per hour ever since God created FM radio. Written in the wake of an emergency brain surgery operation that nearly wiped out Leahey’s hearing, “Skyline in Central Time” is the band’s collective rallying cry, an album that funnels desperation and gratitude and heartbreak — as well as a lot of guitar solos — into eleven tracks produced by Wilco co-founder Ken Coomer. Here’s to second chances.
