Story[change | change source]
Hooverphonic are a Belgian rock/pop group, formed in 1995. The band first called themselves Hoover. The band was composed from Alex Callier, the leader and the guitarrist, Ester Lybeert, the singer, Frank Duchene, the keyboarder, and from the bassist Raymond Geerts. Later they changed their name to Hooverphonic after discovering other groups were already using the Hoover name.
In February 1997, Liesje Sadonius, the second singer of the band, left it and became Geike Arnaert. With her, Hooverphonic became famous all over the world, with the singles Mad About You, Sometimes and Jackie Cane.
On 10 October 2008, Geike Arnaert, the lead singer of the band, said she would leave the group by the end of the year. On 29 October 2010, Hooverphonic said they would have a new single on their website. The videoclip showed fourteen possible singers. Noémie Wolfs was the one selected.
On 4 June 2015, Noémie Wolfs left the band, and in April 2018 Luka Cruysberghs became the new singer.
On 9 November 2020, Luka Cruysberghs left the band, and came back Geike Arnaert. On the same day the band released a Mad About You's new version.
