    Parlotones singer and songwriter, Kahn Morbee, started learning to play the guitar at the age of 17, where he began a journey into song writing that would eventually end up defining The Parlotones sound. In the summer of 1998, Morbee was introduced to Neil Pauw, a drummer who had attended the same high school as him. On hearing Morbee's songs, and realising a shared vision for music, the two decided to start a band together.

    At university Morbee met guitarist Paul Hodgson. One day after both of them were thrown out of the library for playing guitar, Morbee asked Hodgson to join himself and Pauw for a jam. He came to a practice, liked the songs, and joined.

    At the time Hodgson's younger brother was still in high school and could play guitar, piano and bass, so the band asked him to bring his bass to a band practice. With that the band line up was complete. The Parlotones played as a four-piece for almost three years until July 2002 when they asked John Boyd to join, adding a subtle synth and sound effect element to the band, as well as contributing to the engineering during live shows.

    The band started in a garage. Neil's dad sold one of his paintings for a drum kit. Then Kahn and Neil started and Paul and Glen joined the band.
    Neil was a service manager and Kahn was afinancial advisor before they decided to go full time.

    Neil also a very good artist painted the painting for the fight against rhino poaching. The band is managed by Raphael Domalik as part of sovereign entertainment.

    The Parlotones are supporting and contributing to various causes and always have time for their fans. They were the first band ever to produce a live 3D performance broadcasted live all over the world.
