Hector On Stilts (HOS) is an American Indie pop/Rock band. The band was originally formed in Tucson, AZ in 1998, and currently resides in Albany, NY.


Hector On Stilts was formed by cousins Jeb and Clayton Colwell. The two started performing as teenagers in coffee houses throughout their hometown of Tucson, AZ before taking a break while both attended college. [ [http://www.aznightbuzz.com/stories/121058.php AZNightBuzz.com : Clayton Colwell ] ] The Colwells were in part drawn east to Pittsfield, MA in 2001 due to the city's equidistant proximity to New York, NY and Boston, MA. [http://www.metroland.net/back_issues/vol28_no08/listen_here.html Metroland Online - Listen Here ] ] It was while the Colwells were based in Pittsfield that current bassist Jenn McCarron and drummer John Brodeur joined the band [http://hectoronstilts.com/bio.php] . Prior to joining Hector On Stilts, Brodeur wrote a feature about the band for Albany alternative weekly newspaper "Metroland". The band currently records and resides in Albany, NY.

Origin of the Name Hector On Stilts

Band members have readily admitted that there are numerous theories about the origin of the band's name. Clayton Colwell stated in a 2006 profile that he had forgotten how the name was selected mentioning theories related to a neighborhood resident named Hector who threw rocks at his dog, Jeb's brother possibly creating the name, and the definition of hector as "to bully." Colwell finally stated: "Sometimes I think it comes down to we pulled it out of a hat." [http://www.aznightbuzz.com/stories/121058.php AZNightBuzz.com March 23, 2006]
