Biography

Manila, Philippines (2004 - 2010)

Hale is an quartet that originally formed from the southern part of Metro Manila. The band consists of Champ Lui Pio (vocals, rhythm guitar), Roll Martinez (vocals, lead guitar), Sheldon Gellada (bass guitar), and Paulo Santiago (drums and percussion), Join the Club’s former drummer who replaced Omnie Saroca in 2008.

This four-piece rock alternative outfit collected themselves at the core of one goal to reach out the listening crowd and make them understand the value of the band’s musical sincerity. From the start, all they really wanted was to musically express themselves and be heard. But they didn’t count on the massive chart-topping power of their sounds that spawned a new pop rock genre they’ve coined ‘melodrama’.

Hale (2005-2006)
It was their self-titled debut album in 2005 that propelled them to the local mainstream and gained them their already growing popularity. Singles like Broken Sonnet, The Day You Said Goodnight, Kahit Pa and Kung Wala Ka monopolized music charts across the nation with one impressive hit after another. In that same year the album reached Triple Platinum Certification, sealing their name as one of the country’s most acclaimed bands.

Twilight (2006-2008)

    Miss these guys. I wish they didn't stop after Kundiman came out. I still remember getting chills down my spine when I heard Bahay Kubo for the first time. Sigh. Such an awesome band!

    The fathers of pogi rock...but sadly their not that bad, at least in my opinion. These guys can actually play their instruments, and know how to experiment(and Omnie Saroca was a great drummer for them). Champ might not be the best singer but he can actually make melodies, some too sentimental for others but still...They brought in a different style, loved by some and hated by others, like the one below me. But it's alright.

    Hale is a good band...better than the other mainstream band in the Phils. Bahay Kubo sucks so much though.
