The Hypochondriacs

Hey, y’all. I am Shay. This is thebuzzr podcast. On air indie, from my pad to yours over the airways.


I chatted with band members Josh & Connor about their current music and the new album release WAITIN’.


“The Hypochondriacs have resurrected from the traditional country crypt, to a fresh and raw take to the standard genre. Though profoundly influenced by early Rockabilly, a taste of 60’s doo-wop & 70’s folk-rock.


The band has opened for Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, Corb Lund & Trooper, The Reverend Horton Heat to name a few.
Winner of the “Emerging Artist of the Year”, “Album of the Year”, ‘SOCAN Sound of the Year’ & ‘Country Artist of the Year’ by Music New Brunswick in 2017.


This powerhouse group is made up of Josh Bravener (guitar/lead vocals), Jamie Guitar (bass), Kelly Waterhouse (sax/vocals), Jeannine Gallant (trombone/vocals), Connor Fox (lead guitar), and Andrew DeMerchant (drums).”


Tracks: ‘HWY 2’ (before show) & ‘WAITIN’’ during our chat.


Thank you for tuning in.

Cheers!

New full length album, Waitin’ out NOW on all streaming platforms.

“Waitin’ shines, brightly. As a collection of songs, each of these nine tracks rely on the individual strength of the entire band to make them work. No one’s just along for the ride here. The album is sequenced in such a way that its R&B depth, its Stax Records lover’s appeal, and its embodiment of high performance Memphis soul confidently defines the first four of these nine songs.

Bookended by two distinct odes to the groups’ country origins, Highway #2 and Gospel are the type of character-driven story songs that command a strong attention to the narrative, while Alone and Friends reinforce the group’s strength as a multi-musician force of nature. ” – Grid City Magazine
