“Their music has a great energy to it with infectious, sing-along choruses and refrains” said NPR’s Robin Hilton of Florida’s HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL. American Songwriter Magazine referred to HGWT as “organic, infectious Americana Pop. Their music has a refreshing immediacy to it.”
HGWT’s music has been featured in a national Chevy TV commercial, as well as the PBS series Roadtrip Nation, CBS’s The Good Wife, Travel Channel’s Expedition Unknown and the Netflix series The Ranch. Their live performances have been described as rousing, rollicking, energetic and dynamic. Singer-songwriter-guitarist Matt Burke enthusiastically leads the band through a collection of songs that run the gamut from foot-stomping front-porch spirituals to strum-punk rave-ups, hill-country historicals and more.
HGWT’s last album Science from an Easy Chair has been called “a roots-rock opus… HGWT’s crowning masterpiece” (Bucket Full Of Nails), “easily HGWT’s best” (Creative Loafing), and “a solid record from start to finish loaded with songs that will stand up over time” (No Depression). “Boasting full-bodied playing and production, Science is like an arresting book on tape, but one you’ll want to listen to over and over.” (Big Takeover)
