iTunes Review

In August of 2008 Will Hoge was hit by a van while leaving the Nashville studio where this very album was being recorded. Hoge was listed in critical condition after breaking his ribs, sternum, kneecaps, femur and shoulder blades. But not even a near-death accident could keep him from singing about the silver linings. The Wreckage is alive and bouncing with uplifting Americana — the kind you’d expect from a Tom Petty album, though the jubilant “Hard to Love” sets the tone with more of a vintage Springsteen vibe, replete with bells on the chorus à la “Born to Run.” The driving and rootsy “Long Gone” rocks and twangs like a Mudcrutch gem and even the more melancholic numbers like the title track are hoisted by lyrics that choose to abandon doubt and fear for hope and love. The autobiographical “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” is equally catchy and inspiring as it narrates Hoge’s childhood addiction to music and the hard road he chose to spend his life on, offering sound advice: “Keep on dreaming/ Even if it breaks your heart.”

Worth the $8!

Will Hoge hits every note with a purpose and leaves nothing hanging for frills. His lyrics cut to the quick and are obviously heartfelt. With "Even If It Breaks Your Heart" he brings Tom Petty to mind and I think this is why I like him. There's no way he could be another Petty, but his voice likens to that of the old classic rock I love so much. Great album.


I downloaded his Free song a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was a country song ( I Love Listening To it Too ) due to single cover and I was surprised it was a Rock Song when I played it. It's awesome. I recommend this album and now I'm one of his fans!

Never fails...

Once again, Will puts out pure auditory bliss. He is a true rock and roll superstar. He really puts the majority of rock musicians to shame in today's music world. Pick this album up, and go ahead and pick up the rest of his ridiculously good catalog.

Born and raised in Tennessee, songwriter Will Hoge made his name honing a blend of soulful Americana and heartland rock & roll.
