THE Hailers were originally formed by singer/songwriter/guitarist Robert Mills (formerly named "The Loud Hailers") in his native Wales/UK, where he released several albums featured on S4C and BBC television and radio and for three consecutive years, the winning recipient of the Welsh Rock & Pop Awards. With Robert's geographic move, the band has since evolved into the current U.S. ensemble which includes bassist and songwriting partner, April Carson, known for her presence in The Wild Hairs, Misguided and Ron Keel's Fair Game.
