My new favorite band! Seriously!
The term "more than the sum of its parts" is made for a band like Marshall House Project. This Santa Rosa trio has some sort of magical powers which is hard to put your finger on. Guitarist/Vocalist Sam Hamby is one of the more charismatic and talented frontmen we've had the pleasure of hosting. He leads the charge with this driving soul-funk-blues-rock outfit with one foot rooted in the deep pockets of the past and the other fearlessly exploring the future. In addition to his guitar playing (which is pretty damn impressive in its own rite), Hamby's voice is one of those all-consuming instruments which instantly transforms any venue into a chamber of sonic healing and uplifting spirituality. His bandmates are right there with him as they tear through inspired originals and breathtaking covers.
We are fortunate to host world-class bands from all over the country on a weekly basis. Every once in awhile a band comes along that separates itself from the rest. Marshall House Project recently treated us to a performance which had the crowd hanging on every note. The band's precision was nothing short of impeccable as they navigated a captivating range of styles. Sound poured forth from their instruments with an organic feel, rich tonal depth and undeniable originality. Guitarist/vocalist Sam Hamby is one of the most soulful singers we've ever witnessed and his command of his instrument is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Marshall House Project possess an "x factor" which makes them one of the hottest up-and-coming bands in the country.
One thing that I really appreciate about Sam's guitar style is the way he stretches his notes and chords. Typically when I'm dancing it's like a different part of my body to a different instrument or sound, but with the way Sam stretches and bends his notes i find two sometimes three parts of my body grooving with the tunes. So I am grateful for the way his music moves me.
