Hamadryad is 4 musicians of different generations from varied backgrounds, all living in and around Montreal, that “since 2001” shares a love of the music they “devour” voraciously.
This band is solidly united by: passion for music, "for the music itself", the infectious humor of each member which only take a matter seriously "musical composition", the energy of live stage "given end received", and finally, the rejection of rules of an industry that does not care much for the artists.
Ask anyone who has had the chance to attend one of their performances, these guys’ can set fire to any stage and blow you away!

Hamadryad’s music “recipe” is made up of distinctive pieces from multiple influences: rock, pop, progressive, metal, classical, fusion, jazz and experimental among others. Instinctively, these ingredients are carefully selected and joined, to create a sophisticated quilt of sound.
The group takes great pleasure in "weaving" each pieces of music by harmoniously blending textures and complexities, to build their wall of sound. "…we delight in walking the fine line separating us from over-complexity and self-indulgence".

Such a "wall of sound" cannot be achieved without close cooperation, good communication and a boundless perseverance in all aspects of their artistic approach. The uniqueness of each member and their different approaches guaranties originality in their collective creative process. The musical experimentation is still the cornerstone of the wall. Experience the personal touch of each musician, orchestrating together to create the spiritual dimension of the music that is Hamadryad.

With 5 albums to their credits, including 4 studio recording and 1 “Live in France" Hamadryad' music is difficult to classify. Tinted with varied flavors, and influenced by the many hard rock pioneers of the 70's, their music is still very modern, powerful and definitely always ROCK.

Hamadryad is composed of seasoned professional musicians who are able to render the full complexity of their compositions and arrangements on a stage, with the added dimension of the energy and impact of a live performance. The band wishes to continue bringing their music to live audiences as a headliner or as an opening act.
