Derek Hoke is a singer-songwriter based in East Nashville but this is not a straightforward Nashville album. A commentary on the dark times he feels are engulfing the States, it was nurtured from fleeting thoughts recorded with a tape-recorder whilst driving at night on the Tenessee blacktop to full album status with the assistance of several friends including the likes of Aaron Lee Tasjan to name but one.

A vague country rock feel permeates the disc but their are some quite gorgeous moments that grab the listener. The strings on ‘I’m Just A Man’ are delicious and really heighten its dense hothouse feel.
