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."

Check Out "The Shady Bear Sessions" Singles

We finally have our grubby little hands on the studio session recordings we laid down earlier this summer, and they do not disappoint!  Listen and download them for free here.

We'd like to give a loud shout-out from a mountaintop to Anthony Robustelli, the amazing engineer and proprietor at Shady Bear Recording Studio, not just for lending us his excellent ear, but also for making us feel so welcome.  Shady Bear is, quite simply, a wonderful environment for any artist looking to create top-notch work.

But don't take it from us!  A reviewer at Mighty Burners has already taken a listen and passed his own judgement, here!  And the proprietor of Bluesbunny is a fan of Jasmin's work on "Up in Smoke."
