The band resides in New York City and consists of five members: John McCallum on vocals/synth/guitar, Katie Schecter on guitar and vocals, Philip Nuttle on bass, JJ Lindenthal on piano/organ/ synth, and Dan Kirschen on drums. The quintet draws influence from a range of artists, from The Beatles and David Bowie to Modest Mouse and The Smashing Pumpkins. McCallum is responsible for writing the majority of the group’s music. This past November, The Henry Millers released its debut album, Daisies. In addition, the band has come out with several music videos for songs from the album, including “Diamonds,” “Predator,” and “Mr. Flash Gordon.” The Henry Millers were also involved in the Renew York & Renew Jersey campaign, collaborating with other artists on an album that raised money for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
