Two Upcoming Shows

The Delancey is quite a swank and lively joint, and we will be doing our best to make it livelier and swankier on November 11th.  We turn the gas on starting at 10p.

Pianos is one of the best music venues in the city, and we've been wanting to play there for ages.  So cross this one off the bucket list!  We hit the stage on Sunday, Dec. 7th, at 7p.  More details to follow.

Review From Blues And Roots

Marty, the proprietor of the estimable blues blog, Blues and Roots, had a few things to say about our work on "The Shady Bear Sessions":
"The Shady Bear Sessions" EP delivers all elements of the blues in 3 top quality tracks that will leave you craving for more. Raunchy and slick guitar, wailing harmonica, "dancing" keyboards and a tight rhythm that brings it all together. Add to that the smooth, sultry voice of vocalist Jasmin Lloyd, and you have a sound that is the combination of traditional blues with a contemporary sound that makes THP unique. My favorite track would have to be "Up In Smoke", but all three tracks are winners in my view."

Mini-Review From Bluesbunny

The music lovers at Bluesbunny run an excellent series of snapshot reviews, and THP was lucky enough to snag a slot when they took a listen to "Up in Smoke," one of the three tracks off our recent singles release, "The Shady Bear Sessions":
Up In Smoke by The Hurt Project
True to the past 
It may be old school but there is always something to savour in any faithful rendition of the blues style and The Hurt Project, with their song “Up In Smoke,” give us the heartfelt yet still poised vocals of Jasmin Lloyd. There may be twelve bars until dawn but she’ll stay with you all the way. Guaranteed.

Review From Mighty Burners

Mighty Burners, a blog which features reviews of an eclectic but excellent mix of new music, enjoyed the songs from "The Shady Bear Sessions" and is happy to tell you why:
"I know that it's a fantastic slice of modern electric blues as served by dedicated students of the craft. The set opens with an amazing original number entitled "Up In Smoke" that pits lead singer Jasmin Lloyd's beautifully clear and powerful vocals against a smoky backdrop filled with lamenting harmonica notes, dusty drums and fiery electric guitar riffs that almost steal the show. After blowing the listener away with such a soul-stirring performance, the band ramp things up with a raw-edged heater entitled "Hello Misery". Everything about this track is hitting, from Jasmin Lloyd's rousing vocals that grow larger and larger as the track progresses, to the band's impassioned playing when their leading lady takes a break from the spotlight (peep the interplay between guitarist Marlon Hurand drummer Paul Wohlmaker at the 2:16 mark). This is just good music, from start to finish, and I truly can't wait to hear more from this band. Check out The Hurt Project's The Shady Bear Sessions below to get your weekly soul and blues music fix. Dig the sounds."
