Hail the Hatter started when Jonathan Boos, returned to Trinidad from fourteen years in the United States, and found he was missing playing music. He reached out to a friend who put him in touch with Dax Cartar. Soon after Jonathan and Dax got together to see if they would mesh. They quickly started discussing what they thought was missing in modern rock. Realising they both had a love for theatrics, wild guitar leads, and the general sense of fun that seemed to have been lost from most of modern rock, they decided to form a band.
Quickly adding Nicholai Assam on Drums, and Devin Harry Paul on Bass. Both of whom were veterans of several bands both in an out of the rock & roll scene. Devin even boasted a theatre background, having played the title roll of Jesus in several productions of “Jesus Christ Superstar”. Hail the Hatter was formed.
In short order five songs were written, and the band began discussing heading into the studio. Unfortunately, life happens, and Devin was forced to leave the band due to personal reasons.
Soon after Aaron Lowchewtung joined on Bass, and the band as it stands today was formed. Aaron himself boasted an extensive resume in the local music scene, playing in several genres including Jazz, Rock, and classical. He is also a teacher at The International School of Port of Spain.
After adding one more song to their repertoire, the band headed into Random Design Studios to record their current EP “Discovering Light”. On entering the studio, Nicholas Marsan joined up with the band as producer for the EP and as a full time member of the band. Nicholas also boasts a long history in rock & roll in Trinidad both in bands and in the studio. He has produced several albums for some of the larger bands in the island, and he has fronted some of the biggest cover bands the island has see. He is widely regarded as one of the best vocalists the island has produced.
All members of the band are Trinidad & Tobago nationals and have long histories in the local artistic sector.
Produced by Maarten Manmohan, and Nicholas Marsan. The album holds all the qualities we as Rock & Roll fans hold dear, merged with a modern sound!
Applying the rule that no idea is too crazy or too different when writing, the band endeavours to create a music filled with the sounds that influenced them all while adding their own twist, and modern sensibilities.
The band plans to take their music to the world and show that Trinidadian rock musicians can compete on the world stage.
