The Hall Effect exploded onto the Colombian rock scene in 2006. A four piece indie band, their compelling fusion of rocking riffs and sonic inventiveness, soon gained a fervent following amongst fans and key media.
The Hall Effect are:
Oscar – vocals
Juancho – guitar
Douglas – bass
Andres – drums
The band, who sing in English, released their debut album, ‘Aim at Me’, in 2007, on their own independent label. The singles, ‘Become’, ‘Aim At Me’, ‘Unpure’ and ‘Trip Dog’ were heavily rotated at radio. MTV was an early supporter of The Hall Effect with the result that the video for ‘Aim At Me’ reached the number 1 spot in Latin America. Because of that although they sing in english, MTV nominated them in 2007 as BEST INDEPENDENT ARTIST.
The Hall Effect are widely hailed as a great live band, and it was no great surprise that they were asked to support international superstars Muse, Wolfmother (Paris), Franz Ferdinand and Gwen Stefani. On May 2010 they were invited to open for the Cranberries their french tour, sadly they couldn't join them due to the short notice of the invitation. The band have won numerous awards, "best rock band", "best album", "best video", among many others....
The Hall Effect have international ambitions which has brought them to London. Durin 2009 they worked with Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera on their international debut album "The Hall Effect":
Phil Manzanera: “For the last 20 years I’ve been producing the cream of rock artists from Spain and South America, and so when I heard The Hall Effect I knew that they had something special. The fact that they sing in English, have great songs, and are brilliant musicians, made this project an exciting challenge. And of course there is the fact that they are from Colombia, myself being half Colombian!”
