Biography

Hurricane Harmony is a blanket term; like indie, or alternative, or post-modern. It is a name which lends a singular point of reference to an eclectic collection of teenage angst, enthusiasm, exstacy, and misery.

Contrived emotions have infected rock and roll. whiny, self-indulgent/obsessed artists are castrating our art-form; and Hurricane Harmony has made it their mission to save rock and roll through shamelessness, strength of character, emotional integrity, honesty, and not taking themselves too seriously.

Brady Zomer (drums) and Ira Smith (bass) grew up together in the countryside on the outskirts of kingston. over their childhood, they played in a number of bands, gaining valuable
experience together.

In 2002 it was time to head off to high school where Brady and Ira met Phil Bell (guitar/vocals). While the three never started a band together while in school together, Ira and Phil shared Brady between their individual bands.

In the summer of 2007, Brady (having just parted ways with Bodog contender 'Silver Screen Quotations') approached Phil about starting a band with the intention of "playing a few covers, making a few bucks, and maybe getting laid". Phil was quick to enlist, and before 2 months was over no covers had been learned, but an entire album's worth of material had been written.

Hurricane Harmony is the duality of nature. The beauty and the destructiveness.

we like to think destruction is beautiful...
