only being able to afford to mix 5 songs, they released The Wheatland EP. Lower became an instant smash in several cities in the Southwest, but trouble brewed inside the band. After a few legal battles with people around them, HUVER called it quits. Today, Garin has moved to Colorado to raise his family, John went off and joined multi-platinum recording artist Seether, Jesse went on to join Four Points West and i have no clue where Ricky landed up.
One this is for sure, HUVER could have been one of the best rock bands of 2001. Enjoy! Garin Murdock, Ricky Brooks, John Humphrey and Jesse Davis - collectively known as HUVER - have made Wheatland, Oklahoma ground zero for a truly fresh musical timebomb ready to explode onto the musical scene. For ten years Jesse, Ricky and John recorded and performed in a band called The Nixons. The Nixons enjoyed moderate success during a decade of touring, recording three major-label albums and MTV video appearances.
In early 2000 they decided to embark on a new musical endeavor and the missing piece was found with frontman for the Oklahoma City band Owl - Murdock. Intense writing and recording ensued during the fall and winter of 2000. Based on local and regional airplay for the tracks "Lower" and "Lavender" they opened for Fuel in the southwest. Orchestrated guitars, driving bass coupled with strong drums, and Garin's voice makes HUVER's sound memorable.
Currently they have finished record with producer Steve Haigler (Fuel, Bob Mould, The Nixons) and were mixed by Greg Archilla (Matchbox Twenty, Collective Soul, Buckcherry). Released in late 2001, the group continues to tour and write new songs. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
