Hood Smoke creates dynamic rock music deeply rooted in funk and soul under the direction of singer, bassist, and composer Bryan Doherty. Lyrical folk-like melodies soar over intricately layered backbeat grooves as this band weighs in on life, love, and loss. The band is a tour de force whose members have performed with Quincy Jones, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Koko Taylor, Rhymefest, Garrison Keillor, Nick Lowe, Chris Thile, Umphrey’s Mcgee, Postmodern Jukebox, John Wetton, Howard Levy, and Steve Coleman.
“whip-smart jazz-funk-fusion...lyrics are top-notch throughout”

«A smoking Chicago crew that knows their groove history deliver Grandson of Rufus on this funky for the times set.»
Fiona Silver (NYC)
A native New Yorker… Fiona’s haunting songs and passionate delivery will transport you to a place as unpredictable and exciting as the Big Apple itself.
«In addition to Silver being blessed with a perfectly soft, rich, and soulful voice, it is her fearless experimentation with all sorts of genres that we find so cool. While many of her songs are rooted in the blues, she often transitions into soul, rock, and even pop when you least expect it.»
«We are aware that the label „Femme Fatale“ may sound chauvinistic to some, but when a lady enters the stage like this… we think the title is not only deserved but actually pursued.»
-The Deli Magazine
