Siblings Kyle, Nick, Maggie, and Raleigh write, compose, and play all original Pop/Rock songs. And yes, our last name is Hooks!
Driven by the clever, uplifting, high energy songs by charismatic lead singer/guitarist Kyle Hooks, The Real Hooks have been lighting up audiences of multiple generations in their hometown of Pensacola, Florida and beyond since 2009 with dynamic performances and infectious songs that Kyle says are all about “putting smiles on people’s faces.”
–The Real Hooks have averaged 35-40 shows a year, including performing at numerous festivals and opening for popular acts including Go Radio, Hawthorne Heights and Allstar Weekend. The Hooks family’s powerful musicality, irresistible songs and soaring harmonies draws an inspiring mix of screaming young female fans and parents who get equally wrapped up in the fun and excitement.
Quickly emerging on the national scene, The Real Hooks, whose lineup also features Raleigh (drums and vocals), Nick (vocals) and Maggie (keyboards and vocals), enjoyed out of the box radio airplay success with their 2012 single “Coming After Your Love”.
This year, The Real Hooks will build on this momentum with the release of their highly anticipated debut EP, a six track set that includes a mix of pop-rockers (the playful sing-along “Everybody Up,” the fiery, jangling declaration “OK I Love You”), a soulful, harmony driven romance (“Fallin”), thoughtful but pointed break up songs (“The Game Is Over,” “Another Nameless Face”) and a hilarious, tongue in cheek ode to “Taylor Swift” and her revolving door of romances. Joining Kyle and Nicky as co-writers on “Everybody Up,” “Fallin” and “OK I Love You” are Rob Hoffman and Heather Holley, veteran songwriters and producers who are known for their work with Christina Aguilera and many other pop superstars.
“Our song ‘Taylor Swift’ is a fun jab at her social life, and it’s something a lot of people were probably hoping someone would sing about that needed to be said,” says Kyle. “As a whole, the EP shows that as writers and performers, we’re excited to be in the game making pop music that’s geared to making people smile.”
“Besides the joy of making music together, our favorite part, is just getting to spend time with family.” Says dad Nicky. “Everyone’s off doing their own thing or going to school during the week, but on weekends, we’re together, always having a blast and making people happy somewhere.”
