Finding Lenny


Few bands have made such a killer intro into the high school rock scene as Finding Lenny. In the summer of 2003, four guys met in the band room of their high school to have the first ever meeting of what would eventually become known as Finding Lenny. The group consisted of Alex Crowson on guitar and vocals, Jason Bernert on guitar and backing vocals, Curtis Oaks on bass, and Chase Stonehocker on drums. When Finding Lenny first began, no long term goals were set. Read more on Last.fm
Few bands have made such a killer intro into the high school rock scene as Finding Lenny. In the summer of 2003, four guys met in the band room of their high school to have the first ever meeting of what would eventually become known as Finding Lenny. The group consisted of Alex Crowson on guitar and vocals, Jason Bernert on guitar and backing vocals, Curtis Oaks on bass, and Chase Stonehocker on drums. When Finding Lenny first began, no long term goals were set. The band experimented with alternative, acoustic, punk, and rock sounds. Their first album, Looking For Direction (Lenny Records), reflected this fact.

In the seven-song EP, the band demonstrated their diversity by distinctly combining alternative, punk, and acoustic sounds. Although happy with the turnout of their first album, Finding Lenny wanted a more distilled sound. While they still bring influences from several genres, there is more focus now on polishing the pop-punk rock sound that they have become known for. According to Crowson, much of their inspiration comes from bands such as Switchfoot and Relient K. A temporary respite came for the band in the summer of 06 when drummer Chase Stonehocker went to Costa Rica for two months. Although the motivation to keep improving was still there, the band found it difficult to make much headway without their drummer.

When Stonehocker returned from Costa Rica, the band decided that it was time for some permanent change. In August of 2006, the band decided to part with bassist Curtis Oaks. Stonehocker decided to replace Oaks on bass, and Eric Dauenhauer was added to fill the new drummer opening. Kevin Carroll was recruited as the bands first keyboardist/guitarist.

Dauenhauer and Carroll had played with Crowson and Stonehocker in a side project band called The Darts. The band released their second and final album in the summer of 2007, Nursery Rhymes for Modern Times. Though there were efforts to continue the band, at the end of that summer it was found in best interests to end the band and begin with new aspects of their lives. They are all currently enrolled in different universities on the west coast. Read more on Last.fm.
