Henry Miller is popularly quoted telling those burned and estranged from relationships that “the best way to get over a woman is to turn her into literature.” Musicians, on the other hand, turned estranged lovers into music. New York City songwriter/composer/keyboardist Jason Krebs did just that, writing a catalog of material for a band he had yet to form. Enlisting the help of drummer Chris Tsaganeas, guitarist/vocalist Rich Fuchs, and bassist Bobby Kay, veterans of the Northern New Jersey local music scene, the group locked themselves in their basement-level rehearsal space and fostered a sound that was dynamic and fresh, yet intensely familiar and intimate.
Moving the group into New York City, up-and-coming vocalist/songwriter Sean Michael Murray joined the fray, adding his soaring, heartfelt vocals atop the proven alternative pop rock sound, and Fancy Reagan was born. As the band has continued to grow together, they've honed their sound into a combination of a variety of musical influences, ranging from pop punk and a little 80s glam to the alternative rock roots that growing up in the 90s would undoubtedly bring with it. Finally the guys were able to blend all the different styles into a blend of hard hitting rock drums and guitar and catchy pop hooks. Touching on their collective life experiences and trying to fulfill a fantasy or two, the guys have worked together to bring a group of songs to the mix that truly come from within, a characteristic that draws each person just a little closer to the music.
