Coming from Austin Texas, Hovvdy is the writing and recording project of Charlie Martin and Will Taylor. The two of them, both primarily drummers, first met in the fall of 2014, and quickly bonded over ramen and a love for quiet music. Just a few weeks later, they had combined songs, and recorded their first ep in each others bedrooms and family homes across Texas. Encouraged by positive reactions to their songs on bandcamp, the two committed to each others growth in songwriting and recording, resulting in their 2016 debut album “Taster". The duo have found a unique identity in rhythmic, down-tempo pop songs, that are hopeful, yet melancholy; relatable, yet distinguishable. "Taster" is being reissued by Double Double Whammy in the Spring of 2017.
Thanya Iyer
In the year MMXII, Thanya started writing new songs but who would she choose to play in the band. Would she choose Alex (Pompey) to play bass? Yep. Would she choose Daniel Gelinas to play drums? Yep. Would she choose Simon Millerd to play trumpet? Yep. Would she choose Shaina Hayes to sing backup vocals? Yep. Would she choose Trey Anastasio (of Phish) to play guitar? Nope. Thanya doesn't have guitar in her band.

Having assembled an array of amazing artists, they began recording in a church with a moldy ceiling, a moldy basement, and of course a bedroom made out of pews while simultaneously playing at POP Montreal (while half of the band had strep throat), MURAL Festival (while a third of the band was performing in a bilingual "popera" about a surfers in New Jersey) and Shigawake Music Festival (Everyone was there and had a great time).

Having returned from a 3 week tour of Ontario/Maritimes/Quebec, no one is sick, no one is playing in any poperas, still no one is playing guitar and everyone is excited to release their debut album "Do You Dream?", an experiment of experimentation and songs coming together. Some might call it "songmentation". Or even, if you look at it as experimentation + songs augmenting each other you might say "Saugmentation".
