Bio

Love Hijacker (Bio)

The latest Love Hijacker recording session was done by MusicNL award winning recordist/producer Don Ellis. Up to this point all of the groups recordings have been created without outside help and this first pro recording, which is presented on this page, has shown the proper technical direction for the new record. These recordings are a small look at the new full lenght which is still in its genesis stages.

The first Love Hijacker EP began production in July 2004 and was completed in October 2004. The attitude towards the recording was to capture the live feel of the band that was forged through many gigs in the St. John's and Newfoundland area as much of the recording was done live to tape. The musical style on the recording is a mixture of original songs by Steve Edwards and collaboration with the group. The sound is distinctly original and has never failed to entertain the wide cross section of people the band has played for.

Rick Bailey - The Independent, December 19, 2004 describes the recording: "Like the return of a former girlfriend, this six-song offering includes the familiar qualities you hold dear and the added spice of years spent apart. Love Hijacker has Steve Edwards back writing the remarkable funk rock he debuted with 2001's The Eddy Stevens Quartet, a memorable album for its danceable ska and jazz sensibilities. The feelings resurface, but with a rock edge to give the songs a new assertiveness."

The Love Hijacker EP was released locally on November 19th 2004 and has served the band well as a promotional and fund creating tool. The group has made new friends and fans with the recording and has gained airplay on CBC radio, Radio Newfoundland and Canadian collage radio.

Love Hijacker is a three piece band comprised of Steve Edwards (guitar and vocals), Mike Dowding (bass guitar), and Brad Kilpatrick (drums).
