William Poyer is a singer/songwriter with a genuine attention to the craft. William left his native UK in 2013 on a journey of discovery, looking to hone a sound that was unique to him. Three years of living in Mexico helped him find the the sound he was searching for and during this period he developed the stunning collection of songs that would go on to become his debut album. William's songs have been described as a blend of real life storytelling with an intimate folk sensibility, driven by strong rhythms and melodic hooks. The sound of Americana from a boy from Wales via Mexico. Grounded by real life experiences and melodic truths 'BORN LUCKY' is out now.

Inspired by a destructive and loss-heavy apartment fire in June of 2016, the Hats have cleaned up, streamlined and will be self-releasing their first full-length record since 2014 this Fall. Surprisingly, the band, who continue to live together even now, see the fire as something of a blessing, offering a chance to start fresh with a focus on the more important aspects of their music. The album will be the first to be released as, The Hats, and will feature more heavily, singer/songwriter, Patrik Gochez’ eclectic lyrical subjects, intricate arrangements, and the lead vocals of keyboardist, Brittany Laine, and lead guitarist, Joey Pierog. Original members, bassist Brenden Harisiades, and drummer, Bobby Rice, offer a rhythm section more solid and creative than ever before. Originally established as ‘Pat & the Hats’ in 2012 to support the release of Gochez’ chamber-pop debut, Heavy Loader, the band released both a full-length record (Fake it till You Make a Hit 2014) and a follow up EP (Pat & the Hats 2016), quickly becoming a regionally recognized name and receiving a New England Music Award for ‘Best Pop Act’ in 2014, a nomination in the same category in 2015, and accolades from regional press outlets in NH, MA, VT and beyond. “The band has a polyglot of influences, from late ‘70s punk-pop to more modern acts like the Flaming Lips, all rooted in classic sensibility… (M. Witthaus The Hippo Press).” The diversity in the indie/pop-rock band’s sound nudged them into a variety of showcases and festivals, sharing bills with Lucius, Lake Street Dive, and the late Charles Bradley. 2018 holds no lack of momentum for the freshly rebranded Hats, as they prepare for the release of their next full-length album.
