Will Hoge has a career whose milestones include Number One hits, Grammy nods, majorlabel record deals, and hard-won independence. Years before Americana music received its own category at the Grammy Awards, Hoge was on the frontlines, helping to pilot and popularize the genre's blend of American roots music. In the current digital era dominated by influencers seeking shortcuts to stardom, Will Hoge proudly treads the scenic route, immersing himself in the journey rather than fixating on the destination. Unapologetically contrarian, an insurgent of authenticity, Hoge takes the helm with his fourteenth studio album, 'Tenderhearted Boys,' where he breaks new ground by producing and playing every instrument himself.

Joe Pernice has been writing for a long time - most of his life, in fact - and has crafted a remarkable catalog that boldly reinterprets and recasts classic American pop. Who Will You Believe may be his most moving and nuanced album yet; it’s certainly his timeliest. “These songs were all written during the same time period,” he says, “and they all seemed to tap into a mood I was in at the time. I go through spells where I’m a certain way for three or four months. I might be more reticent than usual, or more outgoing. With all of my records—and especially with this one—the songs all feel like they belong together, probably because they all arrived during the same stretch of time.”

Throughout, Shook’s deft storytelling documents regular people getting by and keeping on, all presented without filter or pretension.
