Single Review: David Hope & The Henchmen - Hell or High Water

Quality first single from the recently formed group David Hope & The Henchmen

The rootsy folk inspired band are made up of David Hope - Vocals & Guitar & Banjo, Eoin Jordan - Bouzouki & Mandolin & Guitar, David Murphy - Pedal Steel & Guitar & Dobro and Kevin Jones - Drums. Their sound could be described as an Irish Calexico! I'm a big fan of David Hope's solo material from 2007 - 2009 but being backed by a band of such great quality offers so much more to David's sound.

'Hell or High Water' is the first single to be taken from the forthcoming album which is tentatively planned to be on release by the end of the year. It's a song or passion driven by the husky vocals of David Hope and the crunching sounds of the Pedal Steel. It's a great introduction to the band who have a bunch of amazing songs in them!
