Hello Control started in 2006 when Ryan Hayden and Mikey Lemieux went to see Milo Marnes play a show in his band United Mess. Blown away by Milo's ability to sing and perform, they both knew they needed to write music together. After Milo agreed to write songs, the band quickly started writing and recording songs. Before playing their first show, the band recorded a 5 song EP with Tim Lynch at The Recording Company. The tracks quickly caught fire in the band's local town of Plattsburgh, NY.
