Dave Hause, who released his third solo record Bury Me In Phillyin February of 2017 (through Rise Records) is showing no signs of slowing down! Affectionately known as ‘The Songwriters’ Songwriter’ by those ‘in the know,’ Hause’s Bury Me In Philly has already garnished over 1,000,000 cumulative plays on Spotify alone and sales of his infamous ‘Dirty Fucker’ line of tour merchandise (which has featured images of both Donald Trump and shamed New Jersey Governor Chris Christie) has allowed the band to donate thousands of dollars to just causes.
Hause continues his never-ending onslaught of ‘spit shine’ working class tales that run the relatable gambit of disappointment and heartbreak (but still ultimately show us that the good guys really do win in the end) with the announcement of multi-continental touring across Europe and America with Tiger Army, Gogol Bordello, Frank Iero & The Patience and Beach Slang. By the end of 2017, Dave Hause and his band, The Mermaid, will have played 172 shows!
Too often it seems we are searching for gold in all the wrong places. On Two Coyotes, Roger Harvey looks beyond the blinding flash of all that seems to glitter and reconnects with the roots of song, reminiscent of a time when music was more folk tradition than commodity. The record feels like a spiritual descendent of the country and folk music that influenced its creation, while maintaining continuity with the electric-guitar driven style of his previous releases. The result is a conversation between the warm acoustic nature of country and the deliberate twang and richness of rock and roll, with a deeply emotive message and timeless delivery.
