Hull was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He moved with his family seven years later and grew up in Richmond Hill, Ontario, and moved back to Atlanta when he was 14 years old. His parents bought him a guitar which he taught himself to play. A year later, he was writing and performing songs with a friend who played bass guitar. After that band collapsed he started another one with Manchester Orchestra's keyboard player, Chris Freeman, on drums.

Hull initially intended Manchester Orchestra to be a solo project, with guest appearances by his friends. "I was listening to a lot of Morrissey and The Smiths," said Hull, "So the city of Manchester really fascinated me, as did the idea of being the leader of an orchestra and having all my friends come in to play."

Feeling increasingly alienated at his "small-town-Georgia, Christian high school" in suburban Atlanta, Hull spent his senior high school year studying at home. He wrote and recorded his first full-length album in 2004 during the same school year.
