Passionate soul-rock amidst a plethora of addictive grooves – Hybrid Blues’ new self-titled debut album is a fine collection of engaging, seductive originals.
This project seems fit to accompany the angst & uncertainty, the isolated intensity, of 2020. Quite possibly a personal favorite from the band so far.

Instrumentally raw yet impressive, showcasing the best of the live-band aspect of GREYE, Lucky kicks into gear with the soulful roar of Hannah Summer’s raspy and powerful rock vocal.

The result is an authentically heartfelt & intimate portrayal of deeply human emotion.
“Our music will never stand still for me – if you regurgitate the same thing because it sells, that’s not art.”
Deuce in full is gorgeously eclectic, and absolutely worth letting play three or four times over – the journey doesn’t grow tiresome, the arrangement is on point, and the playing is so uninhibited and openly creative.
Storming into 2020 with an unwavering love for classic rock and roll, Second Hand Mojo combine seductive rock groves with powerful, satisfying songwriting, delivering an EP that’s a total joy to let play at volume.
Sometimes things get intimate, other times they stand back and stare at the world, attempting to deliver an explanation.

Beginning with the quickly immersive and inescapably catchy Pull The Pin, fast-paced guitars and subtly raspy, accessible vocals lead you through a memorable melody and poetic story-line that almost instantly presents an absolute anthem of a track.
