Hoth Brothers deliver a feel and sound that others fail to achieve by trying too hard to capture such essence of style.

It comes naturally to them so they don’t have to work at it – spontaneous with a strong heartbeat and depth of substance.

The tectonic plates were nudged when they released the Workin' and Dreamin’ album. They had, from live performances on their home turf, already thrown down the gauntlet to let the world know that they meant business.

When the record finally emerged, it was as if they came out of the corner with all guns blazin,’ the no-holds-barred song-writing of Bard Edrington and Boris McCutcheon delivered with all the earthy character of two men who are no strangers to getting dirt under their fingernails.

Formed when the pair first came together in 2017, they whooped up powerfully-charged material that lifted the spirits like tumbleweeds in a dust devil, creating a whirlwind of timeless roots music and salt-cured New Mexicana. Each had also put out solo projects to help make their mark.

When they produced Workin’ and Dreamin’ it felt like there had been a seismic shift. “Best release of 2019 so far,” was one comment.

"All you ever liked about John Fogerty, JJ Cale, John Hartford, Tony Joe, Hillfolk Noir The Earl Brothers and Ramsay Midwood, rolled into one amazing album," said another.

The album was recorded in February, 2019 when a portable studio was set up at Edrington’s house. After three colossal days, the best cuts of prime meat were canned and ready for market, complete with the just-right percussion of Greg Williams and the instinctive brilliance of Sarah Ferrell on upright bass and vocals.

They set out to create a true folk album with as little “production” as possible to keep it honest and pure, understated but punchy.

Together, they lay rail lines through the deep wonders of the American West on a journey that allows listeners to experience truth, wonder the wilderness. It’s an exhilarating ride.
