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 seven 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 played shows around town and are starting to tour, so you should totally like them now while it’s still early and cool. August 2015 marks the release of their first LP, "Fun Size," a step towards more electric and serious music than Homer's 2012 solo effort, "Prom King." The first single and video for "Fun Size," "It's Amazing," were released in February. The video stars Gia Gunn of "RuPaul's Drag Race."

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.

"Prom King," was produced by Ben Taylor of JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound. In promotion of it he received concert and video sponsorship from hirsute social sites Bear411.com and Bearwww.com, and performed at Seattle's XL Weekend bear run.
