Punk Rock Hobo Review – Listener

Listener.jpgFounded by Dan Smith as an underground hip hop project, Listener has since evolved into a full-fledged rock band. The current lineup consists of vocalist, trumpeter, and bassist Dan Smith, guitarist Jon Terrey, and drummer Kris Rochelle.

Their songs are rhythmic and pulsing with a side of weird and Smith’s vocals burn with passion as he belts out his spoken word poetry over either guitar, drums or the occasional trumpet.

I can’t help but sit here and listen to their songs and feel something. I can almost feel the energy that Smith puts into his songs. His words tease me into a trance and I can’t help but think that this is exactly where I’m supposed to be right now in this very moment.

Here is one of my all-time favorite songs by Listener – Wooden Heart.
