Canadian sultry soul singer/songwriter Lady Phyl (daughter to musician/music producer Joby Baker) channels artists like Erykah Badu, D’angelo, Little Dragon, Hiatus Kaiyote, and Slum Village; in hard.times, she’s found a band that can give her voice the backdrop it needs.


With an album’s worth of material written and ready for live performance/the studio, hard.times and Lady Phyl are on track to being a noteworthy upcoming act in the world of nu-jazz/neo-soul/hip-hop. The combination of hard.times’ unique, intricate, textured grooves, and Lady Phyl’s virtuosic vocals/soulful lyrics will see this collaboration bringing down any house; from an intimate venue, to a international jazzfest performance, to a popular music festival stage.
