with special guest Eamon McGrath
Born and raised in Tennessee, songwriter Will Hoge (IG: @willhoge) made his name honing a blend of soulful Americana and heartland rock & roll. After spending his childhood in the Nashville suburb of Franklin, he left Tennessee to study history at Western Kentucky University. Music drew him back home, however, and he relocated to Nashville to assemble a band before cutting his teeth on the Southern bar circuit.
The following years brought a relentless tour schedule, a string of independent releases, and various signings as Hoge embarked on his solo career. His songwriting awarded him recognition from the Academy of Country Music (ACM), Country Music Association (CMA), and Grammy nominations for Best Country Song for "Even If It Breaks Your Heart", the opening track on the Eli Young Band's album Life at Best. Reclaiming the joy that inspired him to make music a vocation in the first place, he began writing while travelling. His thematically and musically diverse personal numbers explore concepts from failing romances to broadsides against political and spiritual dishonesty. (spotify.com)
