We feel like we needed to take this break to bring some new magic into our music and give our other loves some attention…Leisha has been back to acting, Camila has joined another indy band called “Summer Moon” and is working on many solo side projects and DJ’ing and Josh is currently a Zen Buddha Yogi Master teaching others the art of meditation and mindfulness in addition to being the best drummer ever.
Life is multifaceted as you all know and we all have many different areas of creativity that we wanted to nurture in addition to UHH.
Inspired by a PJ Harvey B-side from the identically titled 2004 PJ Harvey album, their band name was born. This indie electro-pop duo’s second CD, Common Reaction releases this week, 19 August. We just watched Away from Her in the van and we both had tears rolling down our little faces.
Pop Matters 20 Questions caught up with them while on the road and, typical of their collaborative nature, they combine their responses, here.
Yesterday, Leisha Hailey and Camila Grey took to their personal Twitter accounts to say they had been discriminated against by Southwest Airlines (a longtime supporter of Logo TV and Logo Online).
I love the idea of my whole world being taken over by love and infatuation. And what would make a better bodyguard than a wookie? Ultimately it’s just a really cathartic process for me. The venues wouldn’t give him a hard time when settling or he’d growl. While I do that I will usually look at photo books and art books that I’ve collected. Grey - Pro-tools (I know I’m a dork) When I bought it, it allowed me to be so creative as far as production and layering sounds. I sit in front of that computer and create weird beats and synth patches. So, I had been wondering what on earth happened to Leisha Hailey and Camila Grey recently, and their electro-pop/indie rock band “Uh Huh Her,” which I first started following in 2008. Last week, the band’s Facebook page came up in my feed, which is where I discovered that they were taking a break from Uh Huh Her, and also had apparently changed the name to UHH (Uh, uhhhh not sure how to pronounce that).I was late to the party, as usual, because I completely missed their first project, the “I See Red” EP from 2007 (during Leisha’s L Word days, no less). Moody, emo electro-pop coming up)And then….crickets. From Facebook:“Dear UHH fans, We realize a lot of you have been asking what is happening with the band. Grey - Getting into a music school when I didn’t know how to read music but talked my way in, anyway. Grey - Making ear candy Hailey - Making people laugh 8.
