Say Hi


Eric Elbogen

Say Hi is Seattle musician Eric Elbogen, a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has been making quirky indie rock records since 2002. Despite plans to retire the band in 2017, the overwhelming response to a vinyl Kickstarter ended up convincing him otherwise (the project, debut pressings of four early LPs, was funded within four hours, eventually exceeding quadruple the goal). Energized by the experience and outpouring of emotion by Say Hi fans, began writing and recording the album Caterpillar Centipede. The record, his twelfth, was released worldwide by his own label Euphobia in 2018, followed by a five-week North American tour. This was immediately followed by the record Diamonds & Donuts in 2020 as well as a 2xLP all-instrumental-mega-synthesizer-record called Elocution Prattle, set for release in early 2023.
