Hello Lover is the 5 best friends that anyone could have. Tom Huckaby(Gtr) and Sean Conway(bass) have played and performed with each other for over 10 years. Robert Dunlap(vox) wrote and sang with The Golden Falcons, and received acclaim from critics and peers alike in the Dallas area. The Hardy brothers, Joe(drums) and Johnny(Gtr), performed with Hardis and Solar Sound System among many other projects. In 2009 the crew got together and wrote rock and roll songs with a dancy-punk feel. The style of music became known as Sex Rock in the local bars and music venues.
Over the years, the Sex Rock sound has grown, expanded and incorporated influences from British post punk and shoegaze styles, and also from American, rhythm rooted rock and roll. It seems only natural that the sound has also been infused with some Texas Swing and other local, spicy flavors.
Hello Lover has shared the stage with acts such as Vanilla Ice, Fishbone, Riverboat Gamblers and many more national acts. They have headlined local, Dallas venues such as Trees, Club Dada(850 max cap.), The Curtain Club, and Palladium Ball Room. Hello Lover recently headlined at The Deep Ellum Arts Fest in 2012 and played the main stage at the Wildflower Festival in May 2012.
