The Academy Blues Project
The Academy Blues Project is a rock quartet based in New York City. ABP's original music blends electric storytelling and the namesake blues with elements of power pop, classic soul and psychedelia. The group is comprised of Mark Levy, Ben Easton, Trevor Brown and Jim Bloom.
In 2021, ABP produced and released three brand-new studio albums: The Neon Grotto (Feb 5), Once Again… (July 23), and prodigal sun (Dec. 30).
The Academy Blues Project cuts its teeth performing live, playing festivals, performing arts centers and club residencies in the band’s hometown of NYC, the northeast U.S. and beyond. Drawing from a diverse catalog of nearly l00 original songs and countless spontaneous crate-digging covers, ABP’s live shows have never featured the same setlist twice in a decade of performances.
“If you’re into psychedelic rock and you’re in New York right now, ABP should be at the top of your bucket list.” – New York Music Daily
