Biography

Will Hoge has been through the wringer. Since launching his career in the late ’90s, the Nashville singer-songwriter has grinded it out on the road, touring through the dead of winter in an RV with no heat; released albums that, while critically acclaimed, didn’t result in the kind of commercial success many predicted; and even stared down an early death, surviving a wicked traffic ...

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm hooked... November 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I cannot get this out of my cd player! It's almost like classic rock again and wow- does Will Hoge have a powerful and raspy voice. Rock hasn't seen someone like this in awhile. This is his first release on Atlantic Records. He's been compared to such others as Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, and Counting Crows. The cd is simply good rock that anybody can enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody thinks that they'll go far. June 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
When asked to describe their sound, I come up with something that is at once complimentary and limiting: Elvis Costello meets Bruce Springsteen. Simply put, this album vibrates with great power-chord driven rock and roll, ironically compelling lyrics and pure musical talent.
These guys deliver on major promises. For example, take "Rock and Roll Star". You've got to have a set of big ones to call a song that. But Will's huge guitar(augmented in an impressively twangy fashion by the since-replaced Dan Baird of Georgia Satellites fame)and Kirk Yoquelet's driving, inventive drumbeat hook you and then the words and structure hold you. "Hey get a look at these cheekbones," Will sings at the top of his lungs as he and the band explode into the chorus.
The whole disc does that. It's one catchy, beatuifully developed, loose-feeling rock track after the next. And it's a well organized one at that. Most of the songs are about failed (or failing) relationships, distance, dysfunction, misguided hope for reconciliation. But it's never maudlin. It's amazing how many different ways a band can explore that territory but never repeat the same feel or fall into old traps. Play "Let Me Be Lonely" in the car and, if you don't drive off the road, you're sure to get a speeding ticket. "Heartbreak Avenue", meanwhile, will make you want to spend your time in a smokey roadhouse with a girl named Lucille. In "(Pretty Sure) I'm Over You", co-written by bassist Tres Sasser, Will and the boys are at their foot-tapping best. It's the second to last track, and as purposefully devoid of emotion that song is, Will ends on a title track that is all emotion.
At just over 33-minutes, you'll wish there was more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweaty, pounding rock and roll January 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Calling all Elvis Costello fans! Tired of Elvis collaborating with Burt Bacharach? Longing for a return to the angry geek that scorched everything in sight in the late 70s and early 80s? Well, fear not, because a long lost Elvis Costello album from 1981 has been found! Oh, the name on the cover may say that this is Will Hoge's new album, released in 2001, but this album sound so much like vintage Costello that it's creepy. From the spit-on-the-mike voice to the off-the-beat stammering of the words. The good news is that Will Hoge does Elvis Costello quite well. The album bristles with energy and angst and simply explodes out of the speakers. No studio wizardry here, just 35 minutes of sweaty, pounding rock and roll. Hell, if Elvis won't do it, somebody has to!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Infuriating That This Guy's Not A Star!!! December 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Will Hoge is by far one of the best performers that I have ever had the honor to see on stage. He is what is missing from rock music today. His cd's are just straight no-frills Rock and Roll in the vein of the Stones, Springsteen, Georgia Satellites and the Crowes.

This is an amazing cd. He keeps getting better with every release. This was the start to an amazing career. I just hope that he get's the recognition that he deserves.

If you can, see him live. You will never go to another show that lives up to this guy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awsone Band May 2, 2001
By Alicia
Format:Audio CD
I first hear Will Hoge when he opened for the Wallflowers at LA Teach. A very great singer and performer. I listen to the Cd everyday. If you like Tom Petty and music that doesn't depress you, you will love this. SO GO OUT AND GET THE CD

5.0 out of 5 stars The wonderful Will Hoge!! August 10, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I don't think there are enough words to explain how great Will Hoge is. In this CD you get the heart and souls of 4 very talanted guys. In this CD Will tries to bring back the basics to Rock -n- Roll. If you ask me, he is dong a damn good job!! Songs like "Ms. Williams" and "She dont Care about Me" are so rocking that if you can actually sit still while hearing them, there is something wrong with you. "Heartbrak Av." is a song that I feel that most people can relate to. Overall the CD is just wonderful!! If Will Hoge ever comes near you, you must go! I have seen them about 8 times in the past year, and every show gets better and better. Plus you will meet 4 of then nicest guys!! Also get their live CD, 'Live at the Exit/In'.

5.0 out of 5 stars WILL HOGE ROCKS November 29, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is my favorite discovery of the year. Will Hoge (Will, Brian, Tres and Kirk) ARE Rock and Roll. Comparisons do no justice: Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Counting Crows, etc. The songs are upbeat, yet poignant. The pain of relationships, surviving break ups, and even just surviving are all cataloged. This CD only begins to capture the power of their live shows.
Recently signed to Atlantic Records, the guys are touring the country and gathering new fans at each stop. DEFINATELY on my list of the top albums of the year. I can't wait for a new album. The song "Your Fool" has recently been released to radio, and others will hopefully be rocking the airways soon.
