Perserverence Key for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, led by singer-songwriter and Philadelphia native Alec Ounsworth, set the standard for being independent artists. In 2005, the band combined the guitarist's unique vocals with a post-punk beat to critical acclaim on their self-titled debut. They were living proof that hard work and grassroots marketing can sell albums. They flew off shelves so fast that the first pressing of the CD sold out and had to be reissued.
