About The Working Hour

Los Angeles, CA

The Working Hour - Los Angeles, CA The Working Hour is an indie-pop band from Los Angeles, CA that features Andy Riesmeyer (Vocals, Piano and Guitar), Peter Doherty (Drums), Ethan Walden (Bass) and John Newell (Lead Guitar) and plays music similar to artists like Weezer, Jack's Mannequin, and Vampire Weekend. The band's sound is youthful, melodic power pop with energetic harmonies and clean arrangements. The carefully crafted songs are enhanced by relatable lyrics and catchy melodies. Whether selling out LA's legendary rock clubs The Mint & TRIP, in the studio with producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, Jack's Mannequin,Fiona Apple) or opening for artists like Jack Johnson, Hanson and Rooney, the band has established a growing fan base and garnered praise from press and music industry heavyweights. Mike Flynn, the multi-platinum Sony A&R producer of The Fray says "[I] love the songs...really dig his voice..." NUVO magazine reviews the band: "Unbreakable is a remarkably polished, cohesive album... the record offers a variety of power-pop arrangements that are catchy and well-developed, complex and rich." Radio stations are loving The Working Hour too - "Presented beautifully. A clean, great arrangement, lean and understated with a perfect focus on the vocal (and what a vocal!) brilliant work." raves Bob and Tom Show host Tom Griswold. "Nice vocals, and a great story." - Brad Holtz, Program director at 92.3 WTTS-FM. The Working Hour is a fresh band for the future, exploding with a palpable, youthful energy just as undeniable over speakers as seeing the band perform live.
