    1Room 207 [2010]


    Hartford lives by a simple set of rules that defines everything they've ever done and will ever undertake: never say what if, don't give up, do what you love and follow your dreams. Sacrificing the 9 to 5 pavement set out for them, the individuals in Hartford, based in Ottawa, Ontario, make a different kind of commitment to the concrete: to follow the white lines between every city and leave it all on the stage, day in and day out. If it comes down to five minutes or half an hour, the four-piece pop-punk outfit delivers an empowering and energetic performance that conveys their message with crystal clear clarity. Their dedication to the crowd is bewildering, regardless of how many people there are in the venue. Hartford stands tall and reflects their beliefs in heart wrenching, thought provoking lyrics delivered through engaging vocal melodies, backed by catchy guitar riffs and rhythms. True to their roots, the backing end of their devotion to tightness is reflected in bulky drum beats that only serve to amplify the groovy bass licks layered on top. This is Hartford: a group of musicians who sets out to tour in 2010 until the soles of their shoes become worn and their only home is the inside of a van.

    Despite their relentless work ethic that drives them towards the future only, Hartford has a bright past that has paved the way for what the band plans to become. Formed in April of 2008, with members coming from bands that had shared the stage with acts the likes of Silverstein, Bayside, Comeback-Kid, Hopesfall, Terror, Love Hate Hero and The Ataris, the boys were well set to take the country by storm. In the first 7 months of formation, Hartford played over 70 shows and sold a solid 500 copies of their self-produced and recorded demo.

    Establishing a solid fan base and getting an honest feel for the road, in 2009, Hartford felt it was time to take a giant leap forward. A year off allowed the musicianship of every individual to shine through the writing process that eventually evolved into two weeks of recording with Rob Freeman, who has worked with bands such as Hit The Lights, Cobra Starship and Armor For Sleep. From January 11th to 19th, 2010, Hartford poured their hearts and souls into getting these ideas transposed to audio frequencies. With the likes of Freeman on their side (guitarist/songwriter for Hidden in Plain View), "The Pilot Studio" became a home, a breeding ground for the boys' larger-than-life endeavours and dreams.

    Present day. A few member changes later, Hartford is better than ever and set to release their 6 song EP, titled "Room 207", with a bang. 2010 only has only one thing in store for Hartford: the road. Keep an eye out for this quartet, because when you least expect it, they will grab your city by the heart and have you singing along to every single word and clapping to every single beat.
