"A Consummate Chorus of "Change for China""

Picking it up a notch, The JV Myka Project, also developed in Baltimore, included two guitarists, one drummer and lead singer JV Myka. The band's most noticeable aspect was their superb harmony, particularly well-displayed during an unnamed number about unhealthy relationships. JV Myka stood out as a passionate singer with powerful chords, ably delivering a soulful voice that ushered the crowd in a head-bobbing trance to several numbers, such as the sensual song "Blind Faith."

One of the best performances from the band was its hip-infused rendition of The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army," which modernized the crowd's mood to a more loose and exuberant feeling. The Projects then played "Find Another Love," a song with a combination of a psychedelic and techno-beat background that left a subtle warning about casually moving on after a broken relationship. Despite minor technical difficulties, this band succeeded as the most mainstream pop group of the night.

"The Squaaks and More @ Creative Alliance"

Included in that dream were the next bad-boys (plus girl) to hit the stage, The JV Myka Project. Though Teporah and JV have been coyly eyeing each other from afar over the past few months, this show is the first that they have actually gotten to play together. We have seen JV Myka all over the city recently, and this is week two out of two that they have been featured in SçN’s summer spotlight. Described by their bassist as “Latin vamp rock,” the thing that really ties together their musical individuality is their violinist-slash-flautist, Mary Jane. Though there were claims of minor technical difficulties during the flute’s part, their set went well and was a powerful showcase of their talent and energy.

On the agenda for this year (2009).



The JV Myka Project is a collection of musicians from Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Florida. In an industry with great varieties of styles, standing out requires magic and energy that captivates audiences. With influences merging the soul of James Brown and the spiritual essence of Jim Morrison and The Doors, The JV Myka Project has emerged on the music scene in surprising, elevated fashion.

With their upcoming CD debut, Modern Day Socrates, due for release in December 2008, JVMP is establishing themselves as a hot-blooded, spiritually charged musical flavor. Armed with seasoned musicians of the Baltimore live music scene and beyond, and bookings at popular venues in Baltimore, New York and Philadelphia, the band molds and remolds tracks from the album and dabble with improvisations to exert raw energy. Gaining traction, new fans, and press buzz makes their CD an anticipated release.

Taking a fresh approach to old school styles and throwing the roots of Blues and classic Rock and Roll into the mix, The JV Myka Project leaves a lasting impression both with their recorded tracks (available for musings on their MySpace site) and their live performances. With intelligent lyrics and simple groove, it’s no wonder people are talking. With more showcases on the horizon and a well grounded network working the music circuit, JVMP will continue grabbing the attention of fans from all walks of life. The messages being delivered speak to the common man. The little guy faces the Giant with no fear. And he does it with flare, passion, and with one eye on the essence of being alive.
