Cheerleader ~ A three song demo record in their center city apartment has led to a continuing string of successes for the duo of Joe Haller and Chris Duran, known as CHEERLEADER. Moving to Philly in 2013 from their Hartford, Connecticut hometown, they decided to pursue what they called a “crazy pipedream” of making music. This has resulted in coverage in major music magazines such as NME and NYLON, many SXSW invitations, The Firefly and Exponential Fests, as well as touring with The Hold Steady, The Wombats, and Colony House. In both the US and the United Kingdom. Now a five piece including multi-instrumentalist Josh Pannepacker, Carl Bahner (drums) and Paul Impellizeri (bass), CHEERLEADER released its debut CD in 2015, and their newest single is A MILLION WAYS.
