    Will Hoge: Yeah, I Never Heard Of The Guy Either, But Damn...

    So I'm watching PBS' Lyrics And Legends show this evening (thankfully, the local begathon period appears to be over) featuring Jessi Colter, Shawn Colvin and one of my few heroes, Mr. John Hyatt. During the show's "Rising Stars" segment, this guy Hoge was introduced. Armed only with a guitar, harmonica and an incredible voice, this fellow put on a one-man Black Crowes soul revue. (Speaking of the Crowes, apparently he has opened some shows for them.)

    The song he played is called "Silver Or Gold". You can hear the studio version from his album DRAW THE CURTAINS at this link. Here is a live version of the same tune.



    This is the guy's official site: WILL HOGE
    "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man."

    I truly enjoyed that. You're right, that was similar in style to the Black Crowes, very soulful. When I hear a tune like that I always feel like grabbing the guitar and doing little BB king style soft blues licks along with it. Thats a sign of a tune that reaches you. Great voice he's got there.

    Will Hoge is awesome. I saw him here in my town before. I dl'd some of his stuff and it's great. I like his earlier stuff better. The latest one is a little too subdued. His version of "Ain't No Sunshine" is amazing.

    I have seen Will twice in concert and have a few of his albums as well. Great voice who should have more national recognition.

    Chef have you ever listened to a guy named Jeff Klein? If you haven't I think you will really dig him. Check out his first record titled "You'll Never Get to Heaven if You Break My Heart." His subsequent two releases are also fantastic, Everybody Loves a Winner and The Hustler, but there's something about that first full album that is just incredible.
    Stay out of it, dude.
