Percy Hill brought a fresh perspective to the jam and festival scene in the 90’s and early 00’s, infusing it with a more mature, composed and conscious sound that drew in new listeners and stood out from the din of weary Grateful Dead tributes and two-step mountain bands of the day, and showcased a wider circle of musical influence, evoking the jazz and fusion sounds of Steely Dan and Sting, with some material harkening even further back to reflect sounds of the 70’s rock greats like Santana and Traffic. They did this while maintaining the energy and creativity that the scene demanded for their live shows, and the release of 1998’s “Color In Bloom” cemented their place at the forefront of a burgeoning live music scene that quickly spread across the country and beyond. After a hiatus that afforded band members to focus on family life and other musical projects, the band reunited in 2016 much to the delight of their loyal fanbase, and they continue to play live and write new material, evolving their sound and inviting a new generation of music fans to join in the fun.
