The Austin, Texas-based indie-pop-rock band known as White Label Analog, consists of longtime friends, Chris Didear (lead vocals), Heath Macintosh (drums, vocals), and Chal Boudreaux (guitar, vocals); with the addition of Mike Fisher on bass.
Setting clear intentions from the get-go, the fellas established two full-time rules for the band: 1) It’s gotta be fun, and 2) See rule #1. Perhaps it was this intention that has contributed to their self-defined sound as everything from indie-pop, to alt-rock, to slam-disco.
Previous studio works include 2015’s A Little More Time, as well as 2016’s In Case You Just Tuned In, both of which clearly inform the the sound of their latest single, the anthemically positive, Everybody Knows.
“Considering the political climate and how the country is so divided, I thought it would be great to put a song out there with a universal message of love and acceptance that was all about connecting with others and inclusivity…”
—Chris Didear, White Label Analog
A vocal derivative of John Mayer and Phillip Phillips, lead singer Chris Didear gives a strong performance.

“Blue sky, sunny days when, we’re together, I’m alive, bring it back again
Riding blind on a tandem bike to nowhere…
I’ll wake with, my best friend
Crack a smile when you hold my hand
It doesn’t get any better than this, girl…”
John Mayer meets Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, with a dash of Phillip Phillips…
