Blend the harmonic sense of Innervisions-era Stevie Wonder with the skeletal downtempo beats of Portishead, and top it up with a scorching soul singer: that’s the magic recipe for Hello Dollface.
— The Big Takeover Magazine
Hello Dollface is a multi-dimensional, cosmic soul collective flirting with a kaleidoscope of color and sound. Dub-conscious indie rockers, a jazz-inspired bubbling cosmic soup, all stirred by a heavy backbeat, the band paints the spirit world in Dali soundscapes layered in through-composed forms, rainbow rhodes, varied meters, jazz sensibility, and a siren’s call in a shifting paradigm.
The creative explosion that gave birth to Hello Dollface took place in Southwest Colorado. Vocal powerhouse Ashley Edwards wandered through Spain, Sweden, Vietnam and China, trying to save the world with a song and a smile. After landing in the Rockies, she collided with bass player Jesse Ogle. Hed just quit a West Coast electro jazz/funk band for the serenity of the high desert. Intent on creating something bigger than a band, they envisioned a dynamic musical community that would bring musicians, students and audience together in a spirit of cooperation, rather than competition from this, the core of Hello Dollface and iAM MUSIC was complete.
