Perhaps it was luck that brought Virginia natives Chris Kasbarian, Carter Auch, Jake Simon, and Jonah Welt together at school when they were only thirteen years old. Perhaps it was chance that they all shared a passion for music and were equally inspired by indie/alternative bands such as The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, and Radiohead. But when the four childhood friends decided in 2006 to embark on a musical crusade to rid the world of mundane melodies and auto-tuned lyrics, it was neither luck nor chance that inspired the formation of the genre-bending, award winning band known as HyeTension; it was destiny. With Chris’ unique vocal prowess, Carter’s mastery of the guitar, Jake’s precision on the drums, and Jonah’s skill with Bass guitar, HyeTension’s live performances have drawn massive crowds at multiple venues all across Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. HyeTension’s full-length album (available on Itunes) has also generated a lot of buzz because of the band’s unique sound that mixes indie/alternative sounds with Armenian/German ethnic sounds.
