CD reviews for Wayne Hancock

Slingin' Rhythm CD review - Slingin' Rhythm
Wayne "The Train" Hancock's affinity for hard core country, roots relevance and Texas swing has been a staple of his sound ever since he won his first music competition at 18 and subsequently released his first record in the mid '90s. Now, 10 albums on, he's firmly etched his place in the Americana firmament, and just as his music tends to lean towards what could be generally defined as an insurgent sound, he refuses to be compromised.

Ride
Rockabilly comes in all different forms these days, regardless of whether it's of vintage ilk or simply reinvented and revived. Nevertheless, Wayne "The Train" Hancock is an original...at least as much as one can claim to be an original despite being born after that genre passed its prime.

Viper of Melody CD review - Viper of Melody
Wayne Hancock channels the essence of Hank Williams Sr. more convincingly than any modern artist.

Working with steel guitarist Arthur Locke, upright bassist Huckleberry Johnson and electric guitarist Izak Zaidman, Hancock and producer Lloyd Maines conjure a »»»

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile goes from excellent to memorable musical event – The last time Brandi Carlile came through town, she was promoting 2018's "By the Way, I Forgive You," which would deservedly go on to win the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. This time out, Carlile performed fewer songs from that strong effort, which amounted to a more well-rounded live overview of her career to date.... »»»
Concert Review: Tuttle does well by coming home – Molly Tuttle has won kudos for her acoustic guitar playing. So much so that she's captured the IBMA award for Guitarist of the Year, the first female to win that acclaim from the bluegrass organization. But it's not so much Tuttle's guitar playing that stood out live. Yes, that serves her well for sure. But it's more that her... »»»
