Ian Thomas AlexyAfter spending more than a decade releasing solo acoustic albums and playing with his brother Teague in folk-reggae group the Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank, Ian Alexy has put together a new band inspired by the classic 1980s rock he grew up on. Enter the Deserters: Dave Mehling on keys, Mike Cini on drums and Johnnie Timm on bass to accompany Alexy’s worldly vocals and easy guitar work. Taking cues from album-oriented rock artists such as Tom Petty, Neil Young and the Pretenders, this quartet adds a Midnight Special type of groove to Homegrown.
