Hog Branch Bio

Should you ever need a lift, a new Austin quintet called Hog Branch can help get you back into the groove — and I mean, right now! This grooving soul/blues outfit combines jazz-filled heart with country soul on their self-titled debut album, Hog Branch, on Blue Vada Records (June 10, 2022 release).

Trying to nail down this eclectic group is no easy task. The genres and taglines that the band have garnered since their formation in 2018 include Wetlands Soul, Funk From The Farm, Country Soul No Limits and Bacon Grease Grooves. You can hear bits of all these on their debut release, recorded at Ice Cream Factory Studios by Matt Parmenter. Hog Branch covers all the swampy turf you might imagine. And the ten songs on their debut album create a nostalgic 1970s gumbo, spicing the peak elements of 70s FM Gold with modern swagger and contemporary worldview....
