Brought together by their friendship and love of music, the four friends formed the band in high school, at first practicing after school in the music classroom. They soon found that one dude's love of electronic music complemented another's ear for straight up rock'n'roll, while jazz sensibilities and punk attitudes fought their way into the mix. The way people listen to music these days is an extremely important factor in Hello Marx's writing. The fact that one member can listen to so many different types of music, and so easily, means that every jam session is wildly different from the last, depending on whether it was Radiohead in the car stereo or Black Sabbath. Due to this strange formula, Hello Marx has a hard time being tagged, labeled or pigeon-holed. Despite the eclectic mix of influences, the band continues to forge it's sound, not knowing whether or not they will ever settle on one particular "style", or even if that is possible in today's Internet saturated world. Hello Marx first formed in the fall of 2006, playing their first "gig" in a garage for a handful of close friends in december of that year.
For the year that followed, they began establishing themselves in Sudbury's already solid all-ages scene, opening for such bands as Attack in Black, The Reason, and Lifestory:Monologue. These shows did not go unnoticed, as they soon began playing shows at Sudbury's renowned Townehouse Tavern, opening for such acts as Montreal's Torngat and Vancouver's Ladyhawk. Read more on Last.fm.
