The Hyde Project

The Hyde Project


Listen to a tune of ours, you can almost place it. But its still unique. We love high highs. We love low lows. When we get quiet, you can hear a pin drop. When we get loud, watch out. We love hanging out together and, above all, we love making great tunes.


We feel lucky that our music is as much about furthering friendships as it is about letting our instinctive musicality ‘grow’ tunes over time. We dedicate time to hard work but we make sure that we can be ourselves in the process. This may seem inefficient but it’s an organic approach that works for us as the tunes become a part of who we are by the time they’re ready to be shown to the world. Our audiences seem to notice that kind of stuff.

“…We’ve proven ourselves and it doesn’t matter what happens, we’re going to continue…we’re going out, we’re playing, were going forward and we got friends that we’re going forward with…we love playing music for people and…we just play.” - Matthieu Sherping, Lead Guitarist

Our music mixes the unique with the curiously familiar, with influences ranging from Paul Brady to Radiohead and from Mozart to the Beatles.

We’ve received a bunch of accolades and awards under our former band name, “A Certain Symmetry”. We were chosen as a 'Critics' Pick' in NOW Magazine for the North by Northeast Festival by Michael Hollett, 'Showcase Artist Performance' at Canadian Music Week.

We played at the opening ceremony of the Toronto Terry Fox Run, and a couple of times on CFRB 1010 (the "Dave Trafford Show" and "Rock Talk" with Bob Shaw and Greg Godovitz). One of our tunes, 'Combustibles', won 'Best Song' and our band won 'Best Live Acoustic Band' at the Toronto Independent Music Awards, and the band won 'Best Independent Rock Band' at the Ontario Independent Music Awards..


We’re working on our first album. Check back soon.
