Review The Artist (13)
FORREST: vocals, guitar and then some
Hellogoodbye is all about having fun. What started out as a casual recording project in one boy's bedroom quickly became the most lighthearted rock-dance-roll band around today. They may not be able to sell a ketchup popsicle to a woman in white gloves but they could probably bring a smile to her face.
Combining this happy-go-lucky outlook with good songwriting, interesting instrumentation and clever wordplay, hellogoodbye is sure that almost no one can say no to their brand of rock, and if not, there exists a melody that will make them change their mind ;).
Immidiatly following the group's conception, it was clear hellogoodbye was a blessed baby. Most of the songs were written even before the bands birth. When the crowds demanded it, a band was recruted and things improved exponentially. The foursome quickly learned their first words, took their steps and pretty soon they were a singing, dancing powehouse. Shows at orange county venues chain reaction, koos, the hub, among others came quick and easy and an awesome following began to surface.
The whole hellogoodbye production is as diy as it gets. All the music is written and recorded in forrest's home studio. The website has always been 100% band created and maintained. All merchandise designs, and even t-shirt screen printing is done by hellogoodbye's caring, hardworking hands. Mailorder, booking, promotion, button making, etc etc etc... all done in-band.
The live show lacks no energy. Each member is dressed in a smile (sometimes nothing but) at the good fortune to be able to play such fun music with such fun people at such a fun show. The keyboardist's bizarre signature 'knee shake with extended arm pointing at the ceiling' dance always "wows" the crowd. Goodtimes is par for the course at "hellogoodbye Live-in-Concert Greens'; sometimes water pistols are chosen over guitars, occasionally a well timed 'pantsing' instead of keyboards. Whether theres a beat behind it or not, something fun will be going on.
What does the future hold for hellogoodbye, you ask? A debut release is in the works, a tour will be scheduled in its support, and the band will continue riding their bikes, swimming and dancing like travolta. their following will continue its rapid growth with each show and a pleasing wave of rocking out will sweep the nation.
So come on out, polish those dancing shoes and let loose. Life is much to precious to spend unhappy.

So cool! | Reviewer: karolyN viciouS | 3/13/09
I love that Forrest is a vegetarian. But I don't like that he supports PETA...oh well.
Their music just makes me so happy.
The first song I heard by them was "Dear Jamie...Sincerely Me" and I feel in love all over again.!!!!
