Hooks and The Huckleberries
Hooks & The Huckleberries are on a hellbent tear to greatness. Their cross-genre concoction of Americana, Country, and fierce rock roots delivers fans a soulful, magnetic, and boot-stomping good time. Fabled frontman and rebel son-of-a-preacher, Adam Hooks leads the four-man show from the gritty high deserts of New Mexico, whose poetic performances have earned them reverence from a growing and eclectic fanbase through the band’s relentless efforts on the road. Their eagerly-awaited second album, ‘For the Love of Whatever,’ emerged from mastermind producer Matt Pence’s (Jason Isbell, Shakey Graves) Echo Lab studio in Denton, Texas. This new collection of songs has the band exploring emotive sonic depths of striking songwriting, driven by Hooks’ lyrical prowess and lead guitarist Joshua Lee’s virtuosic blend of roots guitar styles infused with space-age sounds and dreamlike textures. The stage-shaking rhythm section, featuring drummer Dustin Hoag and bassist Ryan Martino, brings a level of raw energy and excitement that elevates every track.
