When not leading Grogan Social Scene, Thomas Hennessy Grogan can be found performing more intimate shows around Washington, DC, where he sings sings poetic, philosophical musings. His current single, 'Steal', was recorded at Hi Dez Studios (Dr. Dog, Jim James, The Head and the Heart) out in Joshua Tree, CA in the Spring of 2018.


The first release under Andrew Puffenbarger’s moniker ollen with a limited cassette entitled ‘home less’. He has once again spun up a swathe of spellbinding songwriting. The difference this time is the added simple yet bombastic rhythm section that was conjured up in the studio with his good friend Peter Mulcahy Jr. This new layer is reminiscent the dichotomy between David Bazan’s solo living room shows and his full band efforts with Pedro The Lion, both great but unique in their appeal. We feel listeners are going to enjoy the more relaxed and mature sound ollen brings.
