The Tearaways have released five full Albums in the last four years and continue to combine their Southern California meets British Invasion songs every chance they get.  With Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Member and Blondie founder Clem Burke on Drums, the Tearaways continue to draw crowds from their homes in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles to places as far away as London, Dublin and Liverpool. 

Longtime Tearaways John Finseth, Greg Brallier, David Hekhouse and John Ferriter are currently touring behind their “Anthems and Lullabies” album and are a perennial favorite on the CW Network’s Hollywood Christmas Parade having performed “Helluva Christmas” last year and “Stuff Your Stocking” this season (produced by Brandon Friesen, THE KOOKS, SUM 41, Nickelback etc.). 

The Tearaways have become one of the longest-lasting and most respected Santa Barbara bands, recording several independent releases, performing at both private and public gigs around the world and garnering a slew of fans and favorable reviews. 

Longtime fans of Hofner, the band uses Hofner Basses and Hofner Guitars both in the studio and during live performances
