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. So, it's not surprising either that Hancock also tends to incorporate classic C&W and western swing into the mix, genres that were decidedly outdated by the time he came along. »»»
Viper of Melody CD review - Viper of Melody
Wayne Hancock channels the essence of Hank Williams Sr. more convincingly than any modern artist. On this 13-song outing, the Texas-based singer-songwriter embraces freewheeling doses of western swing, West Coast rockabilly and cowboy boogie.

Working with steel guitarist Arthur Locke, upright bassist Huckleberry Johnson and electric guitarist Izak Zaidman, Hancock and producer Lloyd Maines conjure a »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. 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 takes her chances on feeling "Blue" – During a rare moment sitting at the piano and appropriately dressed in blue, Brandi Carlile paraphrased a memorable Joni Mitchell quote. Basically, it went that, if you listen to Joni Mitchell music and only picture Mitchell - but not yourself - something is wrong. While Carlile, who performed Mitchell's "Blue" album in its entirety for... »»»
Concert Review: Underwood keeps it world class – There are different levels of fame. There are quite a few artists who go by a mononym; no one asks "Sting or Bono "who?" And then there is an artist whose surname is used as a verb. Being "Underwooded" is a slang phrase used to describe car vandalism. That's American Idol's best-selling artist fame.... »»»
