With no band member over the age of 18, not many would consider My American Heart veterans of the rock scene. But the old saying of don't judge a book by its cover rings true for this San Diego five-piece.
My American Heart already has three national tours under their belt and their 2005 Warped Tour appearance at each show will be their fourth. Having accomplished so much in so little time speaks volumes about the band's work ethic, but to them, it's simply in their blood.
"I believe we work just as hard as any other band trying to become successful, you just give it your best and it's true, you get out what you put in," explains vocalist Larry Soliman. Joining Soliman on this journey is Jeremy Mendez (guitar/vocals), Jesse Barrera (guitar/vocals), Dustin Hook (bass), and Steve Oira (drums).
The becoming sound of My American Heart is centered on "bringing the rock" with their own inspired and creative flair. "We have a retro rock kind of vibe mixed with our own sound," explains Soliman. "We never ever came out saying we want to sound like this band or that band, we just made what felt natural to us from what we've learned and just went with it."
