    Pianist Extraordinaire
    Elijah Bossenbroek was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He started playing the piano at age six, but wasn’t a typical piano player.

At the age of eighteen, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, where he spent the better part of 5 years traveling to places such as Mississippi, Japan, California, and Kuwait. Upon his return from the deserts of Kuwait, Elijah purchased a home recording studio and began working on his first album, “Harmony In Disarray,”. In 2007 after gaining a lot of popularity and momentum in the music industry, he was noticed by an A&R at “A Matter of Substance Records” which signed him to a record deal and produced his anticipated second album “Carpe Lumen”.

    The musical direction of Hello Swindon can only be described as eclectic.

    They are just as likely to come with a country–rock ditty as they are to rip into a ska or reggae song. Rock and roll is at the heart of things, but Hello Swindon does it in an acoustic-electric style that retains the energy and fun, but hints at the folksy blues beginnings of America’s greatest gift to the world.
