Will Hoge - Tiny Little Movies Vinyl LP
Will Hoge Tiny Little Movies Vinyl LP
For two decades, Will Hoge has carried the torch for American rock & roll, carving out his own blue-collar sound rooted in amplified guitars, melodic hooks, southern soul, and rootsy stomp. It's a sound that nods to the best moments of the past – the punch of Tom Petty's anthems; the countrified twang of Buck Owens' singing; the raw, greasy cool of the Rolling Stones – while still pushing forward into new territory, with Hoge's storytelling and larger-than-life voice leading the charge.
Trends come and go. Yet Will Hoge remains a mainstay of the Americana landscape, hitting the road year after year, turning new pages of a career whose twists and turns – including No. 1 hits, a near-death experience, major-label record deals, and hard-won independence – sound like stuff of some long-lost movie script.
Maybe that's why Tiny Little Movies, his eleventh album, feels so cinematic. Recorded alongside Hoge's band of road warriors, the album brims with the same electric energy that fuels his shows. These are songs for highways, hotels, the heartland, and those all-too-brief moments at home, glued together by self-reflective lyrics that find Hoge making peace with life, love, and the long ladder that leads to success.
He teams up with co-writer Dan Baird (former frontman of the Georgia Satellites, as well as Hoge's former guitar player) for the R&B-influenced "My Worst," a song that finds him owning up to past mistakes, then chases down inner peace with "Maybe It's OK," an autobiographical song rooted in the realization that Hoge – mistakes and all – has done pretty well for himself.
