New You Tube

The Human just put up a new You Tube Video to go with a song he recently wrote called,
"Keep It To Yourself."  Its a sparse litty diddy done in his home studio. He played all instruments, but had his friend AC Myles come over to put down a lead guitar track. AC never disappoints with this as you will see when you listen.  The song is about getting a little relaxed at home by whatever means you feel necessary, and then making the case that often times its just better to stay home and groove to the tunes instead of going out.   Especially if you have a good analog vinyl record collection, and bad ass turn table and speakers. The Human tries to create an ambiance with the track, hopefully he was successful.  He might offer this track for sale on spotify, Itunes and other distribution sites. Stay tuned for that.

Keep it To Yourself.


The Human has released 6 CD's from 2006-2017, almost all original music.


He bubbles up under the radar of the mainstream artists, but has the best fans who take the time to listen the lyrics and dig the grooves.  They are special.

March Downloads, Misc

Hey Human Project Fans.

March was a good download for Human Project Music.  It is interesting that there was a pretty significant change in the top 5, with some of the old stand-by's dropping out and some different songs working their way in. What's even more interesting is 4 of the 5 were all from Human Project II, Humanized, Released in 2008.  The Human has always felt that this was one of his best CD's. It was recorded in Visalia, CA working with Dana Long.  Dana plays drums on all the tracks and some guitar as well.  This disc was sent off to Sterling Sound in NYC where is was mastered by Steve Fallone.  He worked on Keith Richard's most recent release as well as many other high profile artists.
So Human Project II, Humanized has a big time sound to it. The songs are great as well.

Here is the Link to Human Project II, Humanized. It can also be found on all sites like Spotify and ITunes.


The Top 5 For March were:

1).  Deep River                 From Human Project II, Humanized. 2008.

2).  My V8 Ford                From Human Project II, Humanized. 2008.

3).  Bad Momma               From Human Project II, Humanized. 2008.

4).  Bar Room Meltdown  From Humanize 2017.

5).  Drive, Drive, Drive    From Human Project II, Humanized. 2008.

Over 40 different Human Project Tracks were downloaded, all written by The Human.

Top Download sites were:

Itunes Match   Switerland

Apple Music   Canada

Apple Music   Japan

Spotify            USA and international as well.

Amazon Premium Services

The Human writes all his own material and helps co-produce as well. He fly's hot and heavy under the mainstream radar. Plays live very rarely. (lives in cover band town) And rely's on his fans to get the word out about his music.

Thanks friends and fans for supporting Human Project Music.

Updates. Promo's. Misc.

Hey Human Project Fans.  Time is flying and spring is here. We have had a dry year in the Central Valley of California after an extremely good winter in 2017 that went along way towards getting us out of the drought, but not good this winter. Luckily there have been some late storms roll in to get much needed snow in the mountains.  I took this pic of the Sierra's that are the backdrop to where I live in Clovis, CA

I made a little promo of Bar Room Meltdown from my most recent CD "Humanize."  The song was recorded close to live in studio and is one of the hardest rockin tracks on the CD.  So I had fun just making a teaser for you to see.  Here is following link to check it out.  There is YouTube of entire song on my channel,  but not using this little program that is very cool for promo's. Just wanted to share it.

Music sales have been strong. That is because of the cool fans I have that appreciate real music with good lyrics.  I keep keepin on because of the fans.

The Human Project is the brainchild of singer-songwriter Loyd Vandergriff, who got the nickname "The Human," in his younger days. He has always loved music and has been influenced by so many artists along the way.  He has incorporated many styles into his songs and the result is some bluesy rock and southern rock that his fans simply call....Human Rock.  His songs tell vivid stories and get you pattin those feet and snappin those fingers when listening to it.

Human Project Music is original, unique and has groovin, organic, old-school feel with witty lyrics and drivin beats. Ya dig the analog feel? Good hot smoldering blues too.

Over this time, his fan base has steadily grown.

January 2018 Downloads

Hey Human Project Fans.

January was the biggest download month for Human Project music ever!  32 pages of downloads, over 400 individual tracks.  Tons of downloads from all 6 Human Project CD's that span from 2006-2107.  Particularly gratifying was the amount of downloads from The Human's new CD "Humanize." People are finally starting to see just how good that one is.  Recorded from April 2017 and finished in July of 2017. This CD has a real raw organic feel to it, with a majority of the tracks being recorded as close to live as possible.  It is also a testimony to just how good the players are that The Human brings into the studio.  These guys are not gun's for hire studio musician hotshots. They are local Central Valley guys that can always be counted on to step up when The Human calls on them.   But of course none of this happens without the fans that are scattered out all over the world.  From 2006 to the present The Human Project's fan base has steadily grown. 

The statistics for monthly downloads are compiled by CDBaby. They manage and distribute The Human's music to sites like ITunes, Spotify and all other music download sites and they also compile the monthly statistics as well.

Top downloads for January 2018:

Fast Train                                              Humanize 2017
High Anxiety                                        Human Project II, Humanize 2008
Got Myself In Trouble                          Humanize 2017
Backroads                                             Humanize 2017
Highway 58                                          Humanize 2017
Bar Room Meltdown                            Humanize 2018

As you can see, "Humanize" caught fire and dominated the top downloads for January.

Here is the CDbaby link to Humanize, but it is also on Spotify and Itunes and many other sites as well.

New Human Project Track

Hello Human Project fans.  The Human has been busy, but he just did a new video to go with his song "Backroads." It's about the desire to get out of the stress laden big city life and get back to
the good ole backroads of rural America and small town America.   This one has a little southern tinge to it (The Human was born in Georgia).  It is on his most recent CD, "Humanize."  AC Myles does his best Dicky Betts thing and the Human Project band fills in the rest.  The Human still hosts "Human's show" on podomatic and has not been too active with recording or writing lately, but thats the way he rolls. No telling when he might get on a roll again.

Link to Backroads.


These good ole Backroads, treat me right.

The Human has released 6 CD"s from 2006-2017. 99% of the material is original.  He is one of Central Cal's most prolific songwriters and one of its top selling recording artists.


Peace Yall

Happy New Year 2018

Hope this finds the New Year (2018) off to a good start for you.  Hope you are staying well also. There seems to be an epidemic of illness across a broad spectrum all across the country. The main culprit seems to be a very bad strain of flu.

All good with Human Project Music.  December was another very good download month thanks to you, the fans.  41 Different Human Project tracks were downloaded and The Human wrote em all but one.  (Norwegian Wood).  Also, over 200 downloads. 

Here are the top 5, but understand there were many songs very close to these as well.

1). Requiem For Washington           Last Train Out 2013
2). High Anxiety                              Human Project II, Humanized, 2008
3). Norwegian Wood                        Human's Last Stand, 2014
4.) Fast Train                                    Humanize, 2017
5.) Jimmy's Juke Joint                      The Real Stuff 2006

The Human hasn't been too active on the recording front, but he did recently complete, "Roy Boy Blues."  This is about the recent Senate Race in Alabama in which the good people of that state chose to reject a 19th century backwards thinking candidate.  The Human has been known to write stuff that has biting social commentary, so this was fertile ground for this endeavor. Congratulations to the people of Alabama for rejecting this type of candidate.   Here is link to YouTube of "Roy Boy Blues."
