We want all of your senses to feel real good when you listen to our CD. The David Samuel Project David Samuel achieves palettes of color from his Stratocaster, driving the guitar with funky wah-wahs, smooth sustain, walls of feedback, and any limitless combination of tonalities to color his songs with life. This is rock n' roll with all it's roots intact, a hint of blues, a touch of funk and soul, a storm front of energy unleashed from the first note to the last song of the night! "I want to be around for 20 years," says the band leader, vocalist and guitarist as he talks about his desire to replicate the success and longevity of such bands as U2 and Aerosmith. "I don't want to be done in 3-to-5 years when the flavor of the moment's gone." Lead vocalist Tiffany Tyler, Samuel's costar in the group and the only member to make the transition from the Project's earlier incarnation, shares Samuel's vision of taking their catchy, funky rock to the national stage. "The stuff we're doing now is more modern, more sellable," she says, comparing their latest direction to the group's bluesier, more psychedelic roots. "This is our own crossroads." While the group's sound has changed a great deal in the last year, the anchors of it remain firmly in place. Samuel is still a guitarist that takes his cues from Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and the group continues to pump out songs that get lodged in your head as they defy easy categorization. On "Ashur," they combine Tower of Power horns with funky blues guitar riffs. On "Ingram House," they paint a picture of artistic tenacity with soaring vocals and a dark, epic musical framework. On "Take Time," they create a song so insanely catchy that you'll be singing it to yourself even as you curse Samuel for pushing repeat on your internal iPod.
