Blending the symbolism and storytelling of folk music with pop melodies and the drive of alternative rock, All Poets & Heroes produces songs that are at once introspective, exposed and hopeful.
Rob McCall (lead vocals/rhythm guitar) and Corey Jordan (lead guitar/ backing vocals) founded AP&H during the summer of 2015 and have remained the band’s primary songwriters, recently adding drummer Billy Harrison. Based on the content of their lyrics, they chose the phrase “all poets and heroes” from Henry David Thoreau's Walden to represent their desire to make music that questions and considers human existence.
Later that summer, AP&H worked with Aux Records and recorded their first single “Unidentified,” which was released in fall of 2016. The band is slated to independently release their first EP, Where We Lived and What We Lived For, in October 2017.
At a time when the world seems focused on seeking material success and wanting more of everything, AP&H is making music that connects us with nature and creates hope that people are meant for more. The band juxtaposes a raw rock sound with lyrics and melodies crafted like wandering poetry and linked by catchy refrains, to create music that listeners can relate to and a live sound that makes audiences move.
