Hello Noon is on a mission to fight for inclusion and to give a voice to under-represented communities. Their influences include Arcade Fire, Ok Go, Panic! at the Disco, Kasey Musgraves, and Head and the Heart.
In the beginning, the band was merely a hodgepodge of quirky students in UCLA's music program. Everyone came from different cultural and economical backgrounds with their own experiences dealing with obstacles like mental health, bullying, and sexual identity. What each member had in common was a love for creating music and a drive to serve the underdogs.
Hello Noon partnered with SoCal Special Olympics to create a music video for their song, “Run Free,” off their debut album. The video reached over 50K views on YouTube and led to future partnerships with the Best Buddies Foundation and Mattel Children's Hospital.
The band stays active volunteering at homeless shelters, performing for adolescent correctional facilities, and hosts regular check-ins with fans over Zoom.

"The piano combined with the fast strumming acoustic guitar gives the track an anthemic vibe to it. The vocals come across as extremely real and this is quite refreshing. It’s amazing to hear music that feels completely genuine."
