CD Review: Will Hoge Slows Down With "Living Room Sessions"

Country music artist Will Hoge is not one to sit around and wait for fame to find him. He's released 5 full-length studio albums, 7 live albums and 2 EPs all within the last decade. His latest release is an EP entitled "The Living Room Sessions" and it features six songs recorded in Will Hoge's living room.

The songs have a very relaxed feeling with most of the focus on Will's lyrics. The up-tempo "Long Gone" is missing the punch of electric instruments, but the rest of the EP picks up from there. The fragile, gentleness of "Too Late Too Soon" is felt through Will's vocals as no overdubs or retakes were done during the recording. The standout tracks is the country-pop of "Favorite Waste Of Time" and the EP closer "All Night Long" which plays perfectly to the lyrics on this fan favorite.

Will Hoge will be joining Shinedown on tour starting November 4 as the tour makes its way up the east coast. For album information and tour dates, visit willhoge.com.
