Artist

CURATOR:
LOCATION:Seattle, WA
MEMBERS:
  • Eric Elbogen

Eric Elbogen was born in 1976 and grew up in San Fernando Valley, California. He attended university at UCLA. He then moved to Brooklyn, New York and formed Say Hi to Your Mom in 2002.[5]

He plays a Fender Jazzmaster guitar.

On tour, friends accompany Elbogen as his backing band.

Their fourth release, Impeccable Blahs, was written almost entirely about vampires,[6][7] though Star Trek is also mentioned.[1] The song "Angels and Darlas" is a reference to Angel and Darla from the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spinoff Angel both created by Joss Whedon.

With the release of their fifth album The Wishes and the Glitch, the band shortened their name to "Say Hi".[8] This was done because the earlier name reflected an aesthetic that no longer matched the band's tastes.[9]

Say Hi recently covered The Violent Femmes "Kiss Off" for American Laundromat Records charity CD "Sing Me To Sleep - Indie Lullabies" which releases worldwide on May 18, 2010.

The band has drawn comparisons to such disparate artists as Belle & Sebastian, The Beatles, The Strokes, Interpol and Gary Numan.[2] Elbogen's lyrics are noted as being one of the band's strengths.[10]

Say Hi's song, "One, Two...One" off of Oohs & Aahs is featured in the 2010 Cadillac CTS sports sedan commercial. [11]
