If you’re new to a Long Range Hustle show, it only takes a minute to feel their contagious energy connect with everyone in the room. From their chilly basement jam space to a sweat soaked stage, Long Range Hustle is committed to fostering a distinct five-piece sound – notable for its warm infectious melodies, driving rhythms, and gorgeous harmonies.
Paul Brogee (vocals, guitar, violin) and Jay Foster (vocals, piano) first met in high school, where they began performing together at local coffee house jams. Mike Brogee (bass, vocals) joined full time in 2015, after repeatedly filling in with the band from the age of 14. AJ Fisico (drums, vocals) came into the mix having spent five years working with the Brogee brothers at summer camp. Then, after producing Long Range Hustle’s last two releases, Ryan Pritchard (guitar) joined the band in early 2017. Each of the five members come from diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz to rock to classical, but share a common love for songwriting and performing.
On their latest full length record, “From Seedlings to Saplings…” the song writing is far from predictable and Confront Magazine noted that the sound “strays from the guitar-drums-bass formula to incorporate violin and piano in every hook-laden song.” Over the last few years, touring has taken them from the Maritimes to Manitoba, and on a continuous circuit through southern Ontario and Quebec.
The guys are currently hard at work writing songs for their third album, more driven thanever to keep making music, and more ready than ever for what comes next.
