Hendrikz McLeod is a plethora of dark soothsayer musical fabric woven with intricate rhythms, harmonious melodies, and lyrics that Lewis Carroll could find hidden in the front pockets of his coat worn during his troubled years. Founded in late 2009 by members Dominic Hendrikz (Ashland, Oregon) and Mike McLeod (Austin, Texas), this fresh sound is beginning to flip heads and turn eyes around the Austin music scene. Hendrikz, the ringleader of this aural circus, writes the melodies and pens the lyrics of the group. In 2007, Hendrikz lived in Austin, Texas in the house where The Blue Hit was formulated on East 51st Street. After co-writing a number of songs with The Blue Hit and performing a few shows with them (their two very first performances), he took his act back to the West Coast where he began a inspirational fueled journey of songwriting and poetry. Mike McLeod, a classically trained guitarist, has performed with a number of bands and worked for film director giant, Richard Linklater. Linklater hired McLeod to record the film score for his University of Texas baseball documentary "Inning by Inning: Portrait of a Coach"; other score work includes UT produced documentary of LBJ, "The Great Society", which was aired at the Democratic National Convention in Denver of 2008. Hendrikz McLeod joined forces with a rhythm section that makes solid groove foundations like professional contractual architects, hired for their music crafting fingers and toes. Jesse Dalton, on upright and electric bass, has been playing for Austin based bluegrass giants, Green Mountain Grass and Two High String Band, for quite some time now. Alan Eckert, University of North Texas jazz alumnus and drummer from Dimitri's Ascent (Austin) and Congratulations (Denton), is on the back beat with stellar drumming and harmonies that bring the whole spiral swinging together.
