Hot Leather draws influences from pop punk, synthpunk, powerpop, and hardcore while also combining it with a lo-fi, diy punk aesthetic to create something completely new.
Citing Atom And His Package and The Emotron as inspirations Hot Leather says he “follows their tradition” by keeping a Yamaha QY700 at the core of the Hot Leather sound.
Originally started as a three piece in Boise, Idaho it quickly became a solo project which led to the release of the first album Do You Remember Your Friends . This album was followed up with an east coast tour, after which Hot Leather moved to Los Angeles, California.
While in Los Angeles Hot Leather recorded his second album Brain Poison. This album was a more polished progression and was the first to incorporate guitar.
He now resides in Atlanta, GA where he is working on his third album.
