Upcoming Band Great Time has been on the rise since the release of their debut LP 'Great Album'. Producing “electronic pop songs in the vein of Twin Sister, Sylvan Esso, and Little Dragon”, the trio, along with a host of featured artists, combines their eclectic musical influences with a small serving of goofs, creating a sound that “ranges from ambient charm to thrashing rock“ and “bridges the sonic gap between Thundercat and Men I Trust”.
After graduating from The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in NYC in 2015, singer Jill Ryan, bassist Zack Hartmann, and drummer Donnie Spackman launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund their recording studio situated on a farm outside Philadelphia. 2 years of labor has culminated in a home base where the trio records/produces their own music, builds custom recording equipment, and fosters a community of some of Philly’s most talented musicians and artists.Their most recent single Rushin’ made a splash in the radio world after Jill debuted the single at NonCommvention in April 2019. WXPN’s Bruce Warren says “If there weren't already a song called ‘Feel Good Hit of the Summer’, this would be called that”.Besides their extensive history at local Philadelphia venues including the TLA and World Cafe, Great Time has toured the country as a headlining act, as well as in support of artists such as Caroline Rose, DonnT and Chill Moody (&More), SALES, Turkuaz, Bailen, and at festivals including SXSW in Austin, Texas. Currently working on new music, Great Time plans to release a new body of work in 2020-21. Following the release of their newest single "Homerun" they project a very funky sound that will certainly get you up you feet. Starting the track with a Synth/drum beat leading onto her soft and luscious vocals she completes this track fully. To explain the track further it's about a song that questions how and if we'll make it through with a hopeful, fun, and energizing overall vibe. This track would be perfect for a late night drive or wanting to dance with some friends. Go stream "Homerun" and check out their discography which is filled with amazing tracks.
