Blending hip-hop, soul, jazz and funk with an eclectic and poignant tongue twisting lyrical style, the seven members of The Press Project circulate massive amounts of physical and musical energy in a supercharged live performance spectacle. The challenge for producer Andrew Gallagher of Waterway Studios was to take that live spectacle and cram it into miniscule laser marks on a shiny metal disc.
Ten months, hundreds of hours, countless creative differences and a near catastrophic break-up later, Get Right is an album set to shift the musical paradigm and get people up out of their seats and back onto the dance floor. Get Right is a collective of every major musical form spun into what many have come to simply dub “Press Music” for lack of a definitive genre or style. And if you aren’t tapping your foot to Press Music, you might want to check your pulse.
Over the past two and a half years The Press Project has played the gamut of regional stages in New England and shared bills with the likes of The Roots, Robert Randolph, George Clinton and toured opening for and backing hip-hop legend Slick Rick. More good things are on the horizon...
The seven-member act originated in early 2005 amidst the burgeoning artistic landscape of the NH Seacoast. In the beginning of the beginning, members were collected to back the ever-eloquent underground hip-hop prodigy Breeze Evahflowin from NYC at a local show in Newmarket, NH. From those auspicious roots grew a movement and that movement adopted a magnetic quality pulling together the musical and lyrical best in the surrounding area. The Press Project was formed.
The band formerly had big plans for a live album in the fall of 2006, but the project was shelved when the band’s engineer and great friend passed away. At that time it was decided a studio album would be more advantageous to the group’s progression.
Here's what some folks have to say about the band:
