Hello Darling is a Nashville Indie Folk outfit fronted by Grace Russell and Patrick Armould. The two artists met at Lipscomb University in 2020. By that point both Russell and Armould had extensive touring experience with different projects. Russell had a solo songwriting career mentored by many of Nashville’s veteran writers while Armould fronted Halleway, a Folk Rock band out of Denver. For this dynamic duo, writing songs together was serendipitous. In just a few months, the project took on a new life when band members: Riley O’Donnell, Amber Sawyer, and Noah Haggard joined the creative endeavor. The fall of 2020 saw the release of their debut EP which received critical acclaim. Indie Music Center wrote, “Hello Darling is forging a straight road to success with their incredible vocal harmonies and flawless writing”. In 2022, they embarked on their first headlining tour and in the same year made notable supporting appearances opening for bands like the 502s, Dylan Leblanc, The Ballroom Thieves, Will Hoge, and more of the country’s prolific touring acts.
