Grouplove (also typeset as GROUPLOVE) is an American indie rock band that formed in 2009 by Hannah Hooper, Christian Zucconi, Sean Gadd (son of singer/songwriter Steve Gadd of UK band Stray), Andrew Wessen and Ryan Rabin (son of film composer and former Yes guitarist Trevor Rabin).

History

The members of the band met at an artist residency in Crete and became friends before forming the actual band. Hannah brought Christian to the residency having met him days before in New York where they were living before the bands creation. Hannah was invited to the residency by Andrew’s brother who had invested in it and purchased one of her paintings. Andrew was there with his brother and called long time friend Ryan, who was studying abroad nearby, and he also ventured out to the beautiful island. Sean was there with some musician friends and the GROUP fell into place. After weeks of fun in the sun they parted ways; Hannah and Christian ventured back to New York, Andrew and Ryan to Los Angeles, and Sean back to England. They exchanged emails sending Group-Love all around. Eventually Sean, Christian, and Hannah ventured to L.A. to see there friends and ended up recording an EP at Ryan’s parent’s house. The name group was untrademarkable thus GROUPLOVE became the name, though they all have matching GROUP tattoos.
