Biography

Growing up in "small town" Ontario, during the 90'z grunge/hip-hop explosion, Kevin & Shawn had no idea that the fire & passion of rock/hip-hop, that was stirring within them, yearz later would unite them on stage & in the studio.

In highschool, Kevin was a member of a rock/punk band of which Shawn was a fan, after highschool & the loss of their cousin, they lost touch for awhile...

After yearz of performing as a solo artist, & trying to find the right drummer, Kevin discovered that Shawn was drumming, more recently their younger cousin Cody has joined them on bass...

The rest is history in the making, for their friendz/family & ever increasing fanbase, a debut album is long overdue, but in the spring of 2010, THA HOOCH "LIBERTY NATION" will finally be finished & ready for the masses!

Kevin also co-wrote/recorded a song with Winnipeg hip-hop celebrity "Fresh i.e" which was later released on his Grammy nominated album across the U.S in 2003.

Since then, the boyz from THA HOOCH have been networking, improving their live showz, & writing new material for their debut album.

Currently, the "LaValley boyz" are working on new material, but as 1 of their side projectz, Kevin & Cody also make up 2 thirdz of MANIC 27, a post grunge, angst fueled, hybrid of 90'z garage magic...

Kevin is also collaborating & producing a hip-hop compilation with many up & coming artistz... 3 thingz make up the very substance & core of THA HOOCH arsenal: Hope, Passion, & Performance....

Currently, THA HOOCH boyz are featured on The Edge 102 Indie online, & CBC Radio 3 as an emerging new rock presence...

Since 2003 THA HOOCH has had a couple of singlez see airplay in a sunday night mix show on ROCK 95, as well as regular airplay on their home radio station, CHFN 100.1...

Among other thingz, a college radio campaign is in the workz, so expect to hear alot from these boyz in 2010... THA HOOCH are currently finishing their "official" debut album, "LIBERTY NATION" this spring...

Lyrics

CHEMISTRY

Written By: Kevin James LaValley

There'z a place beyond the rainbow 7000 milez away, & all our dreamz lye there, yeah...& I don't follow, never follow them, cause I'm not a follower, some were born to lead the way, yeah...

& you might think, that I am not awake, awake well, I can't sleep...but you won't hear me, you won't feel me, unless the chemistry is right, & when the chemicalz unite, it fillz the soul, & it feelz so beautiful...

(CHORUS) & I'LL BE WAITIN...
THERE'Z SO MUCH TO SEE...
IT'Z TIME AWAKEN...
BUT HOW MANY WILL HEAR ME...

So you might see, that we were not awake, & it seemz to me, it just never goez away...& I might be, a bit of everything you need, but what we needz not alwayz what we want or so they say...

& I might find, find a better way, & leave behind, the thingz that shouldn't stay, But you won't hear me, you won't feel me, unless the chemistry is right, & when the chemicalz unite, it fillz the soul, & it feelz so beautiful...

(REPEAT CHORUS)

BETWEEN

Written By: Kevin James LaValley

You don't have to go back home, tonight...& you don't have to walk away, & say... that everythingz, alright...s'alright, s'alright, s'alright, it'z alright...

I'm pretty sure, from what ya heard, from her, the birdz, a bit, absurd...in what she seen, find what she meanz, between, the dreamz, & gasoline... before it all goez up in smoke...you can say that everythingz, o.k with you, & we both know, the, truth...& you can say that I don't mind, but I'll never find, another way, back home...if I'm all alone.......
(if you see me)

(CHORUS) IF I CAN CATCH MY FALL,
IF I CAN CATCH MY FALL, IF I CAN CATCH MY FALL... IF I CAN GIVE IT ALL, IF I CAN GIVE IT ALL, IF I CAN GIVE IT ALL, IF I CAN CATCH MY FALL, IF I CAN CATCH MY FALL.......

I'm pretty sure, from what ya heard, from her, the birdz, a bit, absurd...in what she seen, find what she mean, between, the dreamz, & gasoline... before it all goez up in smoke...you can say that everythingz, o.k with you, & we both know, the, truth...& you can say that I don't mind, but I'll never find, another way, back home...if I'm all alone.......
(if you feel me)

(REPEAT CHORUS)

RIPPLEZ

Written By: Kevin James LaValley

Don't close your eyez, it'll, be alright...need to tighten gripz, & hold on tight... feel like I sense I'm slippin ,the more I try...maybe still somethin missin, that I passed by...
& never recognized....
so many reasonz why....
everythingz in it'z time....
but this time, I'll get it right....

(interlude)

Lost in the world you know... so much I can't let go...seen so many facez, smilez, & tearz...sometimez I'm chasin what'z, already here...
alwayz on the run....
an open mind'z enlightened one by one....
is she the lucky one....
or am I still chasin my tail...

(interlude)

(end-chorus/repeat)

Got the weight of the world, on my shoulderz, where will we go, when it'z over...& if this ripple reachez you, hope you take time, to think thingz through...at the end of the line, gettin closer...if I don't read the signz, how can I show her...
where will we go from here.......
where will we go from here.......
