”Easily the most soulful record in recent memory, Haymaker is the latest by the remarkably prolific Greg Humphreys.” – Fred Mills, Blurt
Haymaker is the latest album from Greg Humphreys Electric Trio, the group that guitarist / singer / songwriter Greg Humphreys formed with bassist / composer Matt Brandau and drummer / producer Keith Robinson in 2014, soon after a move to NYC from his native North Carolina.
The trio wrote and produced their sophomore LP together. Humphreys says, “This is a knockout punch. It’s the best-sounding recording the trio has made. Using our skills as writers, musicians, and engineers, we pushed each other and made an album that none of us could have made alone. Many of these tunes started with the rhythm section, and an undeniable funk n’ soul groove predominates. The lyrics share hard-won truths and they ask why.”
“Blood from a Stone,” the lead track from Haymaker, was featured in the hit Netflix series Outer Banks in 2021.
Humphreys cut his teeth as frontman and songwriter for bands Dillon Fence and Hobex, releasing LPs for Atlantic and London Records and playing thousands of shows throughout the United States, Canada and Europe in the ‘90s and ‘00s.
