After guitarist Wamis Singhatat and bassist Jonathen Swafford parted ways with the math rock ensemble Engincore in 1996, they wanted to start something that was just as complex but with more of an added mood swing. With the additional vocals brought on by Jenifer Bair, Hilo was born into the scene of Akron, Ohio without a drummer.
