Hartley’s Encore is a funk/soul band from Albany, NY. Their mission: making music that's equal parts soundtrack to your Saturday night and bacon for your Sunday brunch. Frequently FUNKY—and always soulful—H.E. is the house band at your dance party for the apocalypse. 

Their sound: (1) smart melodies & hooks; (2) funk/R&B grooves; (3) earworm horn lines; (4) electrifying solos. 

Think: Bill Withers + The Meters + Jamiroquai + Tower of Power + Lettuce.

They have shared the stage with established icons, and stars of today’s scene, such as Los Lobos, and Eric Krasno (of Soulive/Lettuce), as well as future stars, and artists on the rise, like Brandon “TAZ” Niederauer, and Kat Wright.

They released their self-titled debut record (EP) on 4/20/18, which was recorded and mixed by iconic drummer/producer Alan Evans (of Soulive) at (his) Iron Wax Recording Studio. The record is now available on Spotify, iTunes, and all major digital platforms. STAY TUNED for NEW Hartley's Encore material (recorded and mixed by Alan Evans at Iron Wax!) to be released in Winter/Spring of 2019!!!🔥
