Homer Marrs and the Excellent Adventure / Bio

Homer Marrs and the Excellent Adventure is a Chicago-based indie rock act that might get compared to They Might Be Giants but sounds more like David Sedaris tickle-fighting R.E.M. Or the Lemonheads after Netflixing all five seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Their sound is catchy pop/rock with seriocomic lyrics that make people remember things otherwise forgotten, including emotions that are better left unearthed.

They are four Chicago boys: three gay, two ginger, one hipster and one Blisster. They’ve played shows around town and are starting to tour, so you should totally like them now while it’s still early and cool. Fall 2013 marks the recording of their first LP, produced by Rick Field and tentatively titled "NSFW," because it definitely won’t be.

Homer's first solo collection of music, "Prom King," was produced by Ben Taylor of JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, recorded at Handwritten Recording in Chicago, and mastered by Carl Saff. "Prom King" was released May 27, 2012. In promotion of it he received concert and video sponsorship from hirsute hookup sites Bear411.com and Bearwww.com, and performed at Seattle's XL Weekend bear run.

Homer performed "The Facebook Song" on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" live via Skype in support of the first National UnFriend Day. His video for "A Prayer for Julian Sands" was been featured on BuzzFeed and Film.com.
