ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Southern rock immediately evokes images of Black Crowes, The Marshall Tucker Band and The Allman Brothers. HACHA is clearly influenced by these pioneers of the genre, but rather than be a cheap imitation, HACHA builds on that foundation and creates something that is all their own. At times the album sounds vaguely familiar, but just when you are about to identify the riff from some classic tune, it veers off into something new, unexpected, and all together exceptional.

This is the result of a musical collaboration of life long friends. A comfortable old sofa familiarity exists between the band, that was formed while the members were still learning the quadratic equation. This gives them the freedom to venture into new territory, to experiment, and just rock without fear of ridicule or mockery from their band mates. They have formed a circle of trust inside their compound, the Hacienda de Hacha 2.0, in Encino, that extends to the stage and to the studio.
It doesn't hurt that they have honed their craft by playing hundreds of shows across the United States in venues ranging from small clubs to large theaters. Formed in Connecticut in 1997 by friends whose lives were so inexplicably woven together that it would take two thirty packs an a couple of hours to get the story straight, HACHA defined their sound at Brandy's, a Restaurant/Bar owned by Bassist, Mike Murphy's, Parents.

During Breaks from their respective colleges HACHA toured the Northeast extensively while sharing bills with some of the industry's finest performers. A small sample of the artists HACHA has shared the stage with include Guster, Stangefolk, Jerry Garcia Band, Derek Trucks Band, Roberta Flack and members of the Black Crowes, Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule.

They have pulled up their roots (so to speak) and have moved to Southern California where a whole new section of the country can hear their signature sound of southern chant rock, which melds southern inspired rock with soaring, extended choruses. They have taken up residence in the aforementioned Hacienda de Hacha 2.0, so named because it is the second installment, and are ready to launch an offensive throughout the Southwest this fall. HACHA is the product of friendship channeled into musical experimentation and the result is something special.

Just like to say what a great album this is, fine playing throughout and a good production. Recorded in Wallingford CT, a place i know very well having a brother-in-law who has lived there for over 30 yrs.

If you're old enough to remember the days when classic rock was modern rock and almost everyone understood that "Allman Bros" was not "Almond Bros," this rootsy jam will trigger some sensory recollections while still being spiced with a touch of today's jangle. Enjoy!

A Major Find!!!
I found these guys reseaching bands and had never heard of them. I must say that this is the best new find I have come up with in at least 2 years. I think the music is unique with a southern rock sound to it. Vocals, drums, guitars -they are all fantastic.
Listen to "Long Wake Up" and you will order the CD. If they come to Minnesota for a show ever, you can count me in!

impressive original take on Southern Rock hybridized with other genres
quite impressive...veers from rootsy southern rock mixed with grunge/metal elements (Jerry Joseph crossed with Led Zep, perhaps?) to something akin to delicate authentic 60s folk/psych, sometimes in the same song!..guitarist is excellent, at his most original manages to reconstruct melodic Allmanish solos into quasi-prog/metal, a bit like the Hampton Grease Band (the Colonel's original 60s outfit)..vocals vary from raging punkish to delicate folkish to soulful southern roots rock...recommended...only major flaw to me is that it's too dang short!

Funky !
This nine track collection is written and produced by the band and has a raw experimental flare that is just plain fun. Hacha builds on the foundation of great rock music from the 60's and 70's, including jam bands such as The Allman Brothers. Although Hacha's sound follows the road of classic rock music they take off on their own unique journey. A good example of this is track two entitled 'Borrowed Time' that has Led Zeppelin like riffs but soon drifts off into original solid rock guitar solos. 'Ladia-Mine' has a lot of interesting bridge changes, a blasting beat and explosive guitars. 'Take a Bow' starts off with some weird Hendrix like stuff and flows into a beat laden part that meanders into some cool spacey like guitars. Hacha is alchemy of classic rock with a hard modern edge, a funky flare in an original formula.
