Project Trio

Harmonyville Records is proud to release: PROJECT Trio’s third studio recording – a self-titled album that continues the ensemble’s unique and heralded musical exploration. Based in Brooklyn, PROJECT Trio emerged from a classical background, but has found an unconventional and energetic voice through the exploration of unique performance techniques. Their obsession with program versatility and contrast of musical style is executed by Flutist Greg Pattillo, Cellist Eric Stephenson, and Double Bassist Peter Seymour. Simply put, their music synthesizes Hip-hop, Rock, Bluegrass, Americana, Jazz, and Classical music to create their truly distinctive sound. Pattillo, Stephenson and Seymour’s roots can be traced back over 13 years to when they met at the Cleveland Institute of Music. After working with famed ensembles including the Cleveland Orchestra and the Houston Symphony, PROJECT Trio got its first big break in 2006 when Pattillo’s groundbreaking beatbox flute videos were featured on youtube showcasing a key part of the group’s signature sound. After 40 million views, PROJECT Trio’s youtube channel, “Freedomworksfilms”, has amassed a following of over 45,000 subscribers. Pattillo has been lauded by The New York Times as “the best person in the world at what he does”. I first listened to this release with a room full of kids and they were the first to recognize the Brubeck track from their own collections at home and we were all hooked on the changes and immediaely I knew this cd was going to be a winner with me. Which will translate nicely into selected airplay and sets of music build right around pieces to create a set of music that Project Trio would be glad to be a part of.
