HELLO INDUSTRY

GET THE MUSIC: ITUNES | SPOTIFY | BANDCAMP

Amidst the dried up remains of what used to be alive, Hello Industry plants a seed. Whether a rock show or a classical house concert, their approach stays the same: Start a conversation about things that really matter using all available creativity, and deeply meaningful things can happen. Hello Industry is a breath of fresh, unpolluted air in an industry where regurgitating finished conversations and overusing proven musical formulas is the norm.

Nathan’s songwriting derives from a history of depression, cutting, and suicide. “I experienced a lot of pain and uncertainty growing up. But I wouldn’t change my past. I’d hate to try to write this kind of music or connect with people on this level without it. Many times I feel like a weaker person because of my past – I’m scared and insecure a lot. But it’s from that place of weakness I believe we find our greatest strength. If I can make it through life without falling apart, what good is that really? But if out of my pain and weakness I can piece together a lifeline for another human being – that seems to make it all worth it. I’d spend my life doing that.”

The band is comprised of Nathan, a tortured soul, prophetic artist, and [home] barista champ, Heather, a professional classical pianist, avid gardener, mother of three, and foodie, Brett, a classic rock demigod, black-belt engineer, and Tetris king, and James, a jazz bassist, brilliant composer, and chess master. Combining their powers in a sort of Voltron fashion, they come together to serve Hello Industry’s mission: Meaningful music for struggling people.

“If you want to CARE about music again, give these records a spin.”
-Trent Keeling – Stevie Ray Vaughn, Elvis Costello, Sting

“I hear elements of the Beatles, Coldplay, U2, Muse, and a pop rock sensibility. This disc deserves radio airplay and repeated listens.”

Dear Hello Industry Fans,

Hello Industry’s mission is to put meaningful music in the hands of struggling people. We picture a 16yr old girl sitting in her car, fighting life’s hardest battles, with our music as her soundtrack, maybe even her lifeline. That’s what music has been for us.

We use a “pay what you want” model for selling our music. It’s more important to us that people have our music than it is that we make money selling CDs. Of course it costs a LOT of money to make music, to record it, to distribute it, and to tour.

That’s where you come in!

The days of record labels funding and sending bands out into the world are gone. We believe the new music industry is based on a partnership between the artist and the fan.

If you have no money, take our music. It’s for you. No guilt. We want you to have it.

If you have a ton of money, think how many people you can help us give music to.

When you support Hello Industry, you become a partner with us. Now we work as a team to create art and accomplish this mission.
