Music: Ne-Hi

Ne-Hi is the latest group to come out of the Chicago area’s rich lineage of Modern Rock, which has historically produced some of music’s most influential acts and continues to pump out strong new bands on a regular basis.

Ne-Hi is the latest group to come out of the Chicago area’s rich lineage of Modern Rock, which has historically produced some of music’s most influential acts and continues to pump out strong new bands on a regular basis.

The members of Ne-Hi — Mikey Wells and Jason Balla (who both play guitar and sing lead), bassist James Weir and drummer Alex Otake — were first brought together to create a soundtrack for a friend’s film. The soundtrack didn’t work out, but the four musicians were happy with the songs they’d come up with and decided to continue on as a band. Read more about Ne-Hi in this week's Sound Advice.


See Ne-Hi with Cross Country and Smut Wednesday at MOTR Pub. More info/tickets: motrpub.com .
