J.D. Hobson Band – Where the Sun Don’t Shine.

So one of the many albums that I’ve been listening to over the last few weeks is Where the Sun Don’t Shine from the J.D. Hobson Band. The album was at number on the December FAR Chart. Hobson is from the Pacific Northwest and as the winner of the South Sound Blues Associations Back to Beale Street solo/duo competition, JD competed in Memphis at the 2010 and 2011 International Blues Challenges. On the latest album JD has teamed with Dan Infecto (Bob Wayne & The Outlaw Carnies) on upright bass and Nick Auckland on drums to create the JD Hobson Band. As a band they bring even more energy and depth to the upbeat, soulful music their fans have come to love… on his website his music is described as follows:

Imagine a new sound, a cross between American country outlaw roots and the old-school country blues. This is what JD Hobson has done in his most recent album, “Where the Sun Don’t Shine.” This album takes you back and rocks at the same time. Soulful – yet edgy – a whole new take on roots.

“Hobson’s brand of bluesy Americana is steeped in rich outlaw tradition.” (Seattle Weekly Reverb Magazine)

I really have enjoyed the album, so let’s go “Into the Night” with the JD Hobson Band and one of my favorite tracks “Last Kind Words”
