HEATH! is David Rhee and Stephen Heath, and they are an amplified acoustic guitar and drums duo from Echo Park, California.They met in Los Angeles working at the same restaurant, and it was over their mutual dislike of bussing tables that they formed a band. But I digress. HEATH!'s live performance is pure, electrifying, and akin to a stand-up comedian who cracks us up spontaneously, then breaks into an infectious display of honest and soulful songwriting about his long gone dog or the near impossibility of communicating with our families.
