Described as an "everything and the kitchen sink" type of band, the sound of Nashville's KNAPSACKHEROES! is a hybrid of alternative dance-rock, synth-pop, experimental electro, and hip-hop. With themes that run the gamut, KNAPSACKHEROES! has stepped into a void needed to be filled—positive and intelligent pop music that appeals to the masses.

With an exciting live show that features two dynamic lead singers and a band that plays everything from standard instruments to toy keyboards, an Atari system and iPhones, KNAPSACKHEROES! are taking the music world by storm one concert at a time. The band has shared stages with national artists such as Family Force 5, Framing Hanley, Seabird, MC Chris, Cavo, The Band Perry, Skillet and many others.

The members of KNAPSACKHEROES! hail from all over America—from places as diverse as California, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Texas and Tennessee. But it was the music industry in Nashville that each member was attracted to individually, and eventually their love for music drew them together in 2005 to become what is now known as KNAPSACKHEROES! They recently self-released an EP produced by the team behind such artists as Mutemath, newsboys, Mat Kearney, and David Crowder Band. This self-titled EP is available on iTunes, Amazon, and everywhere music is sold online. In 2010 KNAPSACKHEROES! was signed to dPulse Music, an imprint of the Universal Music Group, and will release new music in 2011.

It would appear that KNAPSACKHEROES! offers a uniqueness that may indeed prove to rise above the crowded field of today’s music and, as one of their songs says, veer away from the ordinary.
