Main talk Summary:
Musician Bio :
"A self described “Jersey Shore Ex-Pat turned West Texas Desert Rat”, for over 20 years, Hank Woji played bass in some of The Garden State’s most dynamic and innovative bands, performing at clubs, festivals and concert halls from Virginia to Ontario in styles ranging from Folk and Country to Blues, R&B and Rock & Roll.
In the Spring of 2001 Hank moved to Houston, TX, fell in with a bunch of great Texas songwriters, and found his new musical voice as a Singer Songwriter. But it was his chance move, in 2009, to the far West Texas desert town of Terlingua that has most reshaped his life and his music. Critics have described Hank’s music as “acoustic-wielding, sharply observed, Americana all the way” and being “in the best tradition of the Texas troubadours like Guy Clarke, Townes Van Zandt and Butch Hancock” and that “His troubadour style also comes very close to the style of Woody Guthrie or Pete Seeger, or as we heard on ‘Nebraska’ from Bruce Springsteen”
Hank has released five critically acclaimed self produced CDs and is currently working on his 6th album, scheduled for release in early 2023. Over his 30+ year music career, Woji has performed with such diverse artists as: Jonathan Byrd, David Amram, Spook Handy, Susan Hearndon, Max Weinberg, Clarence Clemons Carolyne Mas, Bob Livingston, Grant Peeples, Bill Hearne, Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Bruce Springsteen and Pete Seeger. Still based in Terlingua, Texas, Hank tours nationally, performing regularly at festivals, coffeehouses, theaters, clubs and house concerts as a solo singer songwriter; in various other duo and trio configurations; and with his TexAmericana Jam Band, The Hank Woji Conspiracy.
