Hebdo‘s style, “Adventure-Folk,” is the latest moniker from this Midwest native who wasn’t really born at the right time in history, and still works hard to find out where the people of his time went. Two early submergences in life have shaped him––a strong Lebanese culture, and an Appalachian paradise that taught him how to bring it all back home to his nation’s core. His musical influences are Robert Plant, Andrew Bird, The Temptations, The Beatles, his father, and grandfather.
Hebdo excels at crafting vocal melodies, often performing as an energetic one-man-band. More recently he’s been known to appear with a seven-piece group touting three horns, smooth bass, and electric vocal harmonies with an edge too sharp to mention. His first two EP’s, A Thousand Steeples, and Double Tambo, have received a load of attention, including radio airplay, and have produced a number of extremely entertaining videos on his YouTube channel. Hebdo’s third EP, Keep ‘Em Tgthr was just released, featuring one of the songs that he performed for Songs at the Center.
