Who We Are

We thought that you might want to know a bit more about the people behind the music, so here’s the lowdown on our four band members…

wwa 1Holly’s bright, warm vocal tones and enthusiastic stage presence gives off the kind of passion that audiences can feed off.

Whether it’s a smooth soul track, a classic motown number, a slick dance tune or an indie banger, Holly’s got it sewn up with her incredible range and adaptability.

And to all of those people who are “too cool to dance,” Holly’s got that natural ability to get anyone on their feet, so if we’re playing you might as well get on the dance floor early, because Holly will make it happen sooner or later!

She really is the life of the party!

wwa 2Dave’s got some serious skills on the six-string. He can flip a track on its head with anything from a sweet little melody to a free-wheeling solo, while his jam-packed (and ridiculously cool) effects board make for some show-stopping moments!

But that’s not all. His all-action performances alongside Holly are as electric as his guitar and he loves to feed off the rest of the band and the crowd!

Dave has plenty of musical history behind him, having played in a number of bands including the Birmingham-based indie group Rogue States, who have supported artists such as Arctic Monkeys, Razorlight and Editors.

Dave connects Holly to the rest of the Hotrods!

wwa 4Paul’s natural rhythm gives HATHRs an undeniable swagger. Whether it’s a big chorus or a tight verse, he’s got it locked down.

But it’s not just the bass that Paul takes care of. He knows the inner workings of the band inside out and makes sure the whole group flows effortlessly before, during and after a performance.

The word ‘experience’ doesn’t really cut it with Paul. He has a vast musical background, having played many genres of music with all kinds of artists. He brings all of this and more to HATHRs.

Oozing with ability in all areas, Paul really is a classy customer.

wwa 5The heartbeat of the band, Sam keeps everything locked in tight. That’s until he completely lets loose, then the fun really begins!

Sam knows his way around the kit like the back of his hand and injects a different energy into each track. Confident and adept at all musical styles, he uses his instrument to create the right foundation for all of HATHRs chosen tunes. But he’s always got another gear up his sleeve, so get ready for him to ramp up the excitement at any moment!

Sam has a wealth of performing experience, having been behind the drums alongside classical instrumentalists and indie rock musicians alike. He has drummed at gigs ranging from the spectacular Lichfield Cathedral to the superb indie venue The Sunflower Lounge.

Sam is guaranteed to get you working up a sweat in no time!
