Stamps is a Los Angeles indie pop band consisting of former Hush Sound singer/guitarist Bob Morris as well as vocalist/organist Ren Patrick and drummer Adam James. The members of Stamps are no strangers to the rigorous routine of rock 'n roll, with Morris having toured the country, playing thousands of shows on four continents with acts such as OneRepublic, OK Go, Fall Out Boy, The All American Rejects, Jack's Mannequin, Augustana and Phantom Planet in his previous band. However, with Stamps, the band sought to get away from the typical churn and burn cycle of the music industry. "Before, having a major label deal seemed like your meal ticket. But the truth is, you play hundreds of shows a year, watching people connect with your music, and yet you have nothing to show for it. Bands can sell out 1500 seaters and barely pay their rent. We didn't want to be caught in that cycle anymore. We just wanted to create a band with the freedom to have fun and make timeless music, and I was lucky enough to find Ren and Adam along the way." Stamps proudly wears their 60's influences without taking anyone else or themselves too seriously. They know that music is supposed to be entertainment, and they'd cite Steve Martin as an influence as much as they would The Kinks, The Band or Fleetwood Mac. The first EP, Tramps by Stamps, was released in December. The band is currently recording their second effort. Stamps are notorious fun hoarders, but -- they would love to share some of that fun with you at any and all of their upcoming shows.
