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 Austin Music Awards where they were presented the award by the Talking Heads.
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 you can download at www.hearspeakhere.com. The song is also available for purchase at iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/carrie-single/id445168769.
SPEAK’s frontman, Troupe Gammage, has been recording music since age 11, and has always been entranced by the compositions within his favorite video games. Releasing his first EP at 16, he subsequently released two online albums and, to date, has received over 25,000 downloads. Thereafter, he began creating music on rudimentary computer software and later founded his own production company geared towards gaming for PlayStation, Xbox, Wii and PC.
Never losing his love of music, he was introduced to fellow bandmates Nick Hurt (guitar), Joey Delahoussaye (bass) and Jake Stewart (drums) through mutual friends in 2008 and soon after formed SPEAK
