After putting out its first, self-titled album as a quintet in 2004, the band went back to the drawing board and came back as a leaner, meaner four-piece. Two guitars, bass, and drums, with up to three singers on a given track, deliver a rootsy, jamming style that takes a little bit from many genres of music, breaks it all down, and puts it back together again into something new. Quoting the SH classic "Kentucky Woman," the centerpiece of the new SHARK HAT II, we''ll call it "rock-infused funk and country blues."
Over the past several years, Shark Hat has spent time reinventing its sound, writing great songs, and playing shows at favorite haunts in New York, New Jersey, and Vermont. Now, with a new album of original music set to be released, the band is poised to deliver a fun and memorable musical experience to listeners hungry for well-crafted songs performed by a tight unit of inspired players.
Shark Hat digs real rock and roll, and the guys in the band understand that rock is an inclusive medium. Born when the blues mixed with country music and R&B, rock then went on to spawn new forms like funk and psychedelia. A little jazz bird flew over to check out flowering rock and roll, and it left its mark. In turn, rock sent some of that potent pollen back on over to jazz.
This spirit of inclusion, of crosspollination, is what inspires Shark Hat. The band''s foundation is in the rock of the ''60s and ''70s, and really what that means is anything goes. Got an idea? Let''s try it. Got another? Let''s try that one too.
No source goes untapped in Shark Hat''s varied world. The group''s roots are visible, but its branches reach up and out of sight. Like The Band in its heyday, Shark Hat processes all the music the members have heard over the years and focuses it into a well-honed hybrid that touches on all of the styles listed above. Whether you''re talking about the group''s passion for songcraft or its instrumental flights of fancy, the band members agree on two things: rock and roll.
