"Blueprint Festival Reviews"

One of the first acts we saw was Melbourne six-piece The Hello Morning at the unassuming Syn stage, and they simply blew us away with seductively flowing psych-toned and alt-country tinged space pop. Lead Clifford Stevens, a clone of Johnny Cash in style and substance, and the incessantly beaming guitarist Matt Smith, provided an alluring face of the band. Engulfing slide guitar hazes, organ fuzzes and soulful harmonies would ease you into complacency, then the horns and guitar solos would strike for epic finales. -

The Hello Morning LP (To Be Released, 2010)



Meet The Hello Morning, a band that grew out of a duo featuring front man Steven C. Stevens and guitarist Matthew John Citizen. “If there was a bad gig in Melbourne, we played it,” Steven laughs. “That’s what The Hello Morning is about – the promise of a new day, starting over, shaping your own path.”

Steven grew up loving The Band, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Dylan and Nick Cave. Snatches of all these acts can be heard in The Hello Morning’s sound. “People are always afraid to pin their sound to one thing,” Steven smiles, “but sometimes I wish we could.” He adds: “We just write what we like.” The stage is their natural habitat. “If we don’t have a gig for a week, everyone gets a little edgy.”

In early 2009 The Hello Morning began recording their debut album, first laying down base tracks at Sing Sing Melbourne before retiring to a working dairy farm in Glenlyon, Victoria where they were forced to evacuate twice – fleeing Victoria’s horrific summer bushfires. It was there that they finished recording 17 tracks, including a duet with Bertie Blackman and a cover of Wilson Pickett’s early ’70s gem Don’t Let The Green Grass Fool You. The album is currently being mixed by Lachlan Carrick (C.W. Stone King) and Steven Schram (Little Birdy, Little Red) and is due out for release in 2010.
