BannerHill started as a duo of songwriting, multi-instrument playing best friends, Matthew Lindblad and Liz Hill. The two united to form BannerHill in 2008 with humble beginnings; long hours writing in a garage equipped with two acoustics and a MacBook to record it all. Fusing Matthew's sense of song composition, Liz's ease with words, and their combined gifts for melody, the two quickly found themselves with enough material for an album and then some.
In May of 2009, BannerHill entered the studio to record their debut EP "Beautiful.Dangerous" under the direction of Colby Wedgeworth (Bidwell, Josiah James, Italia Conte). Blending influences that bridge pop, rock, punk, hardcore, and more, BannerHill's debut EP showcases the duo's versatility, energy, and talent. Joined in live shows by additional members Daniel Lim and Kris "the" Butcher, BannerHill is rapidly building their fanbase with each dynamic performance.
As important as the music itself, is the purpose on which BannerHill was founded. BannerHill believes strongly in leaving a positive mark on each person who hears their recorded music or encounters the group live. "Through music and the opportunities it grants us, we tell anyone who will listen that they are loved, and that their lives are for a greater purpose than what they've been lead to believe", says Hill regarding the band's mission. With soaring melodies, pulse-raising anthems, and fist-pumping sing-alongs, BannerHill is sure to revive the grass-roots movement of girl-fronted bands not seen in their hometown of Orange County since No Doubt. Though BannerHill is young, they are certainly not one to overlook.
