Flesh, it's the fabric that weaves us together, keeping all the parts in their places. Fleshing out a song carries a similar definition. Brad Hoshaw has been fleshing out songs in a cabin in Minnesota for four years with other songwriters from around the U.S.
And a good song doesn't lay low under the appearance for long. A new crop of songs has been circling Hoshaw's mind with arrangements and preferred producers and players to recreate them. But the economy has been grating, making a full-band album a far-flung reality.
So Hoshaw has released his vision acoustically in the form of Spirit of the Lake. One of the premier tracks, "New Tattoo," is a seething love-gone-wrong song that gets the full-bodied band sound to give you an idea of the song that floats around Hoshaw's head.
Listen to and support Hoshaw's Spirit of The Lake here.
And catch Brad live tonight at The New BLK Holiday party!
