Project X is simply about making music for the pleasure of making music. It’s about playing and experimenting, working the writing and recording processes and seeing what happens as a result.
Project X’s first release, “The Dark Side of the Moo,” was completed as part of the 2019 RPM Challenge and released in early March of that year. It’s an eclectic instrumental mix of rock n’ roll sub-genres like progressive, surf, British Invasion, 1960s soul, alternative, and power pop.
The album, “Are You Sure You’re Not Where You Are?” was born on February 28, 2020, and it too was produced for the 2020 RPM Challenge. “Are You Sure…” is another kaleidoscope of rock n’ roll styles, this time featuring blues, latino, punk, ballad, and even a bit of exotica alongside surf, progressive, and pop. Regardless of the diverse styles, “Are You Sure…” is a cohesive album and shows marked growth.
After surviving the dumpster fire that was 2020, Project X retooled and delivered a pair of surf tracks for the 2021 RPM Challenge: “Tubed” and “Ocean Deep.” These are Project X’s first original tracks to feature a real live flesh-and-blood drummer which brings a freshness to the artist’s sound.
