about

DAVE HAMMER'S POWER SUPPLY'S third effort, simply and appropriately titled GREASY, is an all out blues throw down. Recorded to 2-inch tape and released on thick black vinyl, this album carries the weight of past rocknroll greats that have shaped the direction of the band's songs. Gritty, wild, and subtly refined, these aren't your dad's blues rock jams, but he'll certainly enjoy them.

Despite the music boasting a tough outer shell, one may find a surprising amount of romance layered into Hammer's lyrics... images of hopping trains, leaving one's pain behind, simple declarations of love for one's family, and just playing the guitar and singing.

"Blues is one of the oldest forms of American music, and we love working in that tradition. We especially love to bend, twist, and break it" says Matthew DeRubertis, bassist. "These songs were a huge joy to bring into existence." DHPS invites you to dust off that old turntable (or listen to it in some digital form, if that's your fancy) and share that joy.

Dave Hammer's Power Supply Akron, Ohio

You may be caught off guard when Dave Hammer, guitarist/singer and namesake of Akron, Ohio outfit known as DAVE HAMMER'S POWER SUPPLY interrupts himself, mid-phrase, with an unruly guitar lick. This trio can gravitate towards the unpredictable end of the musical spectrum, but they’re never aimlessly jamming. They're spinning their own delicious web of soulfully jazz-infused, progressive blues. ... more
