So HEAVy is no longer.

Maybe you're not familiar with their music but if you live in Indianapolis you've more than likely at least been blessed with "Do For You." I've given multiple djs this track to play for me personally. Yes, its that deep.

Some of my fondest memories have their songs playing in the background and I'm sad to report the group had disbanded.

So if you don't know who the hell I'm talking about let me drop some knowledge.

Casey (stutzmcgee) Benjamin & Nicky (Ampersand Jones) Guiland = HEAVy, a mind boggling mix of rock, soul and pop chock full of quirk and irony that is uniquely their own.

The Jamaica Queens, NY natives carry on the "power-duo" tradition of singer and producer, pulling influences from across the spectrum, Herbie Hancock, Rotary Connection, The Police, Prince to name a few.

Check them out. Better late than never.

  1. This makes my heart weep. Do for You has become one of my FAVORITE songs, and by favorite I mean at least top 3. All good things must come to an end, I suppose.
