Hallowed Ground is a record full of hard-hitting funky rock and roll diversely interspersed with layered ballad-esque movements, acoustic and electric cuts. A song inspired by a euphoric dream In The Dark , solo acoustic desolation and hopefulness Dragonfly, and a fiery distorted electric-blues drone in Through The Trees. A solid very accessible often dark record with moments of lightness and insightfulness. An unassuming thread of oneness and solitude woven throughout, though not quite a concept album. More of a striving reprieve for deliverance from ones own self, realizing that in the midst of it all... "I've always been home". Whatever the case, it rocks!

With his debut album Hallowed Ground, Daryl Hance has stepped out from his 12-year long role as guitarist for southern rock and soul band JJ Grey & Mofro, just as if compadre Grey and his Mofro cohorts eased their skiff up close enough to the bank for Hance to jump off and venture back out into his own neck of the woods. A landscape decorated by an unrelenting sonic-blast of groovin' rock and roll music built of humid-heavy blues-driven guitar grooves, fully-cranked funky riffs, soothing slide and acoustic guitars. All cushioning a very laid back and largely introspective vocal style atop thick bass lines and pocket-locked drums.
