Stacy Jones formed American Hi-Fi after playing drums with the likes of Letters to Cleo and Veruca Salt.  He made the jump from behind the kit to singer/guitarist/front man and recruited his friends from Boston to round out the band; Drew Parsons on Bass, Brian Nolan on drums, and Jamie Arentzen on guitar.  Nolan would later be replaced by Jason Sutter on the skins.

The band recorded their self-titled cd in Maui with Bob Rock and had a hit single with “Flavor of the Weak”.  They followed up their debut release with their album “The Art of Losing” and massive amounts of touring around the world.  Their third and latest release “Hearts on Parade”, was written and recorded by the band alone and then some production help from the one and only Butch Walker.

It’s been some time since their last release so bassist Drew Parsons took some time to fill us in on where American Hi-Fi has been, and where they are going.
