In 2008, while all the girls were still in middle school, singer and guitarist Julia Pierce brought together Rena (bass and backup vocals), Nia (drums, percussion, and backup vocals), and Miranda Miller (rhythm guitar, keyboards, and backup vocals) to form the hard rock group Cherri Bomb. The unique name of the group came from ‘Cherry Bomb – The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Better Flirt, a Tougher Chick, and a Hotter Girlfriend, and to Living Life Like a Rock Star’, a self-help book by American music and entertainment journalist and author Carrie Borzillo.
The group landed a lucrative contract with Hollywood Records, which was signed on June 14, 2011. Four months later, on October 18, they released their debut EP ‘Stark’. Soon, they found a loyal audience. The group opened for popular groups such as Bush, Camp Freddy, Filter, Foo Fighters, The Smashing Pumpkins, Staind, and Steel Panther. They also got the opportunity to be featured at several European music festivals, including Sonisphere, Reading and Leeds Festivals, and T in the Park in Scotland. At the Oxygen festival in Ireland, they were the youngest group to make an appearance.
During this period, the group parted ways with Hollywood Records. They drastically and consciously changed their music as well, becoming essentially a pop-rock band. On March 19, 2015, Hey Violet released their new single ‘This Is Why’. Five days later, the news of the group’s signing with Hi or Hey Records, a record label created by 5 Seconds of Summer in partnership with Capitol Records, was made public.
On July 17, 2015, their first EP as Hey Violet and second EP overall was released. Titled ‘I Can Feel It’, the album reached #2 on the Top Heatseekers chart. With Rena being the group’s new lead singer, they desperately needed a new bassist. During the 2016 Sounds Live Feels Live World Tour, a new bassist named Iain Shipp was introduced to the fans and he became a permanent member in September 2016.
Rena Lovelis was born Pyrena Lucrezia Morze Enea on April 6, 1998, in New York and was raised in the Orangetown area.
