WD-HAN is a band with an interesting name, WD-HAN actually meaning "We Don't Have A Name." The band started while Cal Henry, the lead guitarist, was still in high school. It wasn't long before he discovered the unique talents of female drummer Lea Campbell and then picked up the vocal stylings of Spencer Barnes one night when Barnes was pulled from the audience to do an impromptu performance with the band; the rest is history.
The group started playing classic rock covers like Jimi Hendrix and diving into some humorous hip hop before striking gold with original songs of their own which infused several different influences to create a very cool, pop rock sound. The Tampa, Florida based band has been featured on nationally syndicated television, several radio stations and performed with bands such as Guster, Fun, and Motion City Soundtrack.
One thing which characterizes the group is an un-serious, fun, more upbeat style of music which fits very universally into much of the mainstream without sounding exactly like anyone in the mainstream. There are touches of bands such as the Goo Goo Dolls, Lifehouse, Maroon 5 and others but WD-HAN manages to carry their own identity forward because there are several songs which surprise you such as "Something Worth Writing About" which goes a little heavier and deeper than other tracks, really rocking out.
Their music could be what you listen to while you're in your car driving to the beach and at the same time could fit perfectly as a theme song for television built for youth. There is an empowering, uplifting, very fun feel to the music WD-HAN makes which make them well worth discovering if you are interested in taping into the ever flowing fountain of youth the band has managed to bottle out in Florida. Take a drink, sit back and relax, WD-HAN may be the band that doesn't have a name, but they are surely making a name for themselves with their fresh, energetic sound.

Neal Fox, originally from Brooklyn, New York now resides in Florida where he continues to produce music that not only affects you because of the sound of it but more importantly because of the message. Fox sees the same world we do, filled with corrupt politics, suppressive drugging of children, rampant crime and instead of turning a blind eye and escaping into white picketed fence land, he instead challenges that vision of our world by exposing it using the most powerful weapon on Earth: art.
Fox has had a successful career making music. He has been signed to major record labels, received critical acclaim, helped score a couple films, as well as compose music for a ton of commercials and several TV shows, including "The CBS Evening News with Dan Rather," released his own music independently and even produced a couple one man shows. He crosses genres and weaves in and out of them like he was a taxi driver maneuvering through the streets of his native New York, comfortable with his vehicle, always aware of his passenger and never taking his eyes off the road. His music has achieved a certain level of ethical idealism that is often missing in a pop culture that is constantly fed hair-grabbing, nail scratching reality television, and degrading, sexual and drug fueled music. Neal Fox is taking on the whole damn system and coming out on top with a brave and powerful outlet which continues to produce work after work of hard-hitting, political and inspirational music that shines a light like one of those big searchlights the helicopters use, except Fox's light is magnified much brighter.
Neal Fox's songs and music videos expose the true, yet often hidden elements working against an America he has grown up cherishing. Some of his videos depict American history as Fox depicts it, not as the textbooks suggest it to be, but as he has observed it to be from a careful study of the world around him. Big government, corrupt pharmaceutical companies and every bad guy on the planet, beware: Neal Fox will find you and instead of falling for your traps, he will set one of his own, in a song.
