Will Hoge

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Will Hoge succeeds thanks to a skill that’s almost always underrated: He makes the familiar feel fresh. The Nashville-based singer, who flits between country and folk, settles into a rustic rock groove on this year’s Never Give In. It’s a collection of common sentiments and time-tested techniques, but Hoge leads his backing band with passion and vigor, squeezing extra juice out of techniques that might have previously seemed bone-dry. Barroom piano dances with warm guitar as Hoge promises to be better “This Time Around.” Elsewhere, he rides an authoritative choogle, praising the partner who makes him want to be “A Better Man.” None of this is revelatory, but Hoge manages to make his words and his sounds feel important — a strength that’s all too easy to undervalue.
