Name: Empty Houses
Based In: Detroit, MI
Sounds Like: Fitz & The Tantrums go to Motown
Staggering between modern and classic, Empty Houses is the latest and greatest retro-soul band to emerge from the storied music hub of Motor City. Following the dissolution of Detroit pop-punk act Fireworks, members Adam Mercer and David Mackinder joined forces with singer Ali Shea to solidify the ultimate rock-pop trio. With an array of instrumental abilities and a colorful vocal range, the band brings forth an infectious and charming feel-good vibe anyone can dig. Having released their increasingly-acclaimed debut full-length, Daydream, earlier this summer and we expect they’re headed for big things in the coming year.
