Andrew Wessen, a pro surfer and musician from Los Angeles and his childhood friend Ryan Rabin, an accomplished drummer and producer, were also at the residency and quickly joined in with the musical trio.These five musicians make up the members of what we now know as GROUPLOVE .Hannah Hooper met Christian Zucconi late one evening on the lower east side of Manhattan.They had both been living in New York for years and had never crossed paths before.My friend Matt, who I shared a studio with at the time came by one night to get me out and grab a drink and see a band play.I remember walking into the club on Ludlow, the stage was lit so you couldn’t see anyone but this recklessly passionate voice filled the room—and that voice was Christian’s. He unleashes a vulnerability and honesty on stage that I had never seen. Christian Zucconi: But you were so cute and in this painting suit and spoke to me after the show…so out of character.
We actually ended up falling asleep under a tree in this big field. Paste: What was it like when you started making music together?
"Seriously, we had only known one another for a few days but are both so inspired and alive when we are together that going to Greece seemed like a magical and natural thing to do" recalls Zucconi.
On Crete, in a small remote mountain village, Hooper and Zucconi met the members of their future band "GROUPLOVE" a year before it was officially formed.
But from that night forward the two could hardly be pulled apart.
Soon after their connection Hooper was invited to an art residency in Greece on the island of Crete and Hooper insists "without any hesitation" she invited Zucconi to join her on this journey.
