If you’re looking for new tunes you and your kiddos can enjoy together, get ready to be schooled in the power of rock by Homescool (yes, without the “h”).
This all-kid band is fronted by 8-year-old Lennon Epand, who draws her inspiration from powerful female singer/songwriters such as Aja Volkman and Avril Lavigne. The band began as a pick-me-up project during the remote-learning portion of the pandemic. Looking for ways to channel those big feels of screen time overuse and basic burnout, Lennon and her musician dad, Dan Epand (from Nico Vega), decided to channel some of that extra energy and write music together. This new homework assignment, well…it resulted in a perfect score. What started out as a father/daughter collaboration quickly shifted into a community effort. The band now includes a revolving collective of talented kids whose parents come from bands you might have heard of, such as Imagine Dragons and The Who.
Homescool has been on some field trips, playing music festivals and charity events. And Lennon continues to focus on writing hard rockin’ honest songs, whether they be about how much she loves her cat or playing the drums. Look for their latest releases on their website Homescool.com and get ready to be inspired and, of course, rock out with your family.
