Album Notes
This is our first album and this being a learning process, there are some things we may have done differently and some things we are pretty proud of. For a band (in its current formation) that has only been together for a short time, actually putting out an album was a huge step. There is often a misconception on what it takes to be a successful band. Getting together to create and play music is the easiest part. You’re doing what you love. When you have musicians as talented as we do, you often come up with some great stuff. The difficult parts are battling addictions, egos, incarcerations, girl problems, low times, slow times, and over looking the general negative bull shit trying to stay together.

That being said, after all the struggles, this is our Album Lessons. "If they were easy they'd be forgotten." We were on a limited budget so we couldn’t really waste time in the studio recording every song. Instead, we decided to choose songs which would highlight all of our influences. The result was an album with a mixture of styles including Rock, Reggae, Drum & Bass, Funk, Acid Jazz, Ska, Punk, Hip Hop, Go-Go, Jungle, Trip Hop and probably some other stuff. We felt each song gives a glimpse of us as a group. That’s the Big Hurt. 6 different individuals with many different personalities that have remained together long enough to put out an album.

Thanks for your love and support:
Billy Martin, Will Sutton, Tim Johnson, Matt Costello, Jamie Kelley, and Frank Kanady, - The Big Hurt.

a great find
I was thoroughly impressed with the diversity and quality of the songs I heard. Not only is the musicianship amazing but most of the songs were radio worthy when the two rarley mesh. I found myself getting angry that I couldn't hear past 2 min snippets. So angry in fact, I put lessons on my credit card. Well done. A great find.

Hey guys
I don't have a credit card but I asked my moms to get me your cd for xmas. You guys are awesome.


not usually the sound I listen to ...but it grows on you!
I don't have a favorite all the songs are great. Track 10 can scare the hell out of you if you know what I mean.


good vibes
Feelin real good bout this. Smooth, original and sexy.


Fun for the whole family!!!!
Great tunes these guys have hit a broad spectrum musically. Low rider, hooligans and lessons are constantly on repeat im my life. Good job guys, rock on.


I just have one question. How the hell did this band come out of Baltimore and I'm just hearing about them? This is a phenom to say the least. Absolutley incredible.


This is what I'm talking about. One of the great east coast bands.

Brian - WV

Impressive and original
Not exactly my choice of genres, but I'm not sure you guys can be put in one. I am impressed and do like the album. Bob, I'm proud of you! Keep up the good work and I can't wait to spread your tunes around West Virginia. I'll tell all who will listen!!
