The beginning of 2003 saw the release of the first solo disc from Harry Hess. Just Another Day came out in March and focused more on the melodic rock and modern influences that made up the two Rubber discs. Harry Hess (born July 5, 1968 in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian record producer, singer and guitarist best known as the former frontman for the Canadian melodic rock band Harem Scarem.
2007 release from Melodic Rock supergroup/project. 10 tracks: Features members of House Of Lords, Harem Scarem, Hardline, MSG, Malmsteen, Street Talk, Robin Beck, Giant, Dan Reed, Crown Of Thorns, and FM.
This is the second Rubber album, following quickly on the heels of their self titled debut last year. It signaled the change of style of Harem Scarem's classic rock roots, to a new modern rock sound, in the vein on the new breed of melodic pop rockers SR-71, Neve, Marvelous 3, Everclear and even Matchbox 20. The debut was a long way from the classic Scarem sound, but retained Harry and Pete's awesome grasp of a catchy tune and for those willing to take the step with them, was a rewarding and enjoyable record. On Ultra Feel the guys make a small turn once again. The album is still firmly planted in modern rock and is as always expected, full of ultimately catchy rock songs, but there is a subtle difference. This is a little closer to the classic sound of Harem Scarem.

Despite extraordinary international recognition Myra Hess never assumed the role of famed cosmopolitan soloist. Rather, she remained the archetypal English lady abroad. Even so she conquered America from the first, an appearance at New York in 1922 with a program that included Scarlatti and Bach, Franck and Schumann, Debussy and Chopin. Myra Hess was preparing for an extensive tour of America when war was declared in 1939. Refusing to leave the UK, she soon became involved in a cause which eventually made her name a legend, the war-time National Gallery concerts. Chamber music was, quite simply, a life-long love that inexorably grew to a passion and which perhaps, reached its climax with appearances at Casals' Prades Festival in 1951-1952."by Bryan Crimp
It was on November 14, 1907, that Hess's official debut took place at Queen's Hall. Accompanying the seventeen-year-old pianist was a conductor named Thomas [not yet Sir Thomas] Beecham. Many years later Hess described the event as "a concert of stupendous length. I played two concertos [Beethoven's Fourth and the Saint-Saëns Fourth] and a group of solos while he [Beecham] seemed to contribute a full-sized orchestra program."by Donald Manildi
