For touring musicians, the road is a harsh mistress. It takes an iron will to survive and a hard-headed love for music so deeply ingrained that the mere thought of a missed gig makes you nauseous. For 17 years, the Hackensaw Boys have plowed the asphalt, bringing their raw, gritty version of American roots music to the venues and streets that originally inspired them.
Born in Virginia, along the same routes as fellow road warriors/street buskers Old Crow Medicine Show, the Hackensaw Boys have at times operated more as a collective than a band, sometimes boasting up to twenty members. What’s kept them together is a burning hot vision of American roots music brought kicking and screaming into a new age, fueled as much by a rowdy punk spirit as by the traditional masters that first inspired them.
Now with their new album, Charismo (April 15, 2016 on Free Dirt Records)–their first studio album in almost a decade–the Hackensaw Boys have a new lineup and a new lease on life. Led by founding member, guitarist and songwriter David Sickmen, they’re back on the road with new songs, determined to get their fans back on the dancefloors they remember so well.
ME AND MY BROTHER is...
and Sam Wilson
Yep. grammatically incorrect. There are three of us, not 2. And none of us are actually blood related. Get over it.
Schuyler Fisk, Sam Wilson, and Carl Anderson all grew up in central Virginia and connected after all being fans of each other's solo projects. Individually, they are all accomplished songwriters/ recording artists/ performers and have all had their own individual successes. Carl and Schuyler both having released 2 solo records of their own and Sam having released numerous albums as a part of his Americana rock band Sons of Bill (a band with his brothers Abe and James).
