A few weeks ago I received an advance copy of Funeral Guns, the sophomore effort from locally adored Americana roots-rocker Brad Hoshaw and his band, the Seven Deadlies.

Wow.

The luscious layers of guitars, organ (Hammond B3, I believe), a little pedal steel, subtle but effective back beats, inspired rhythm – it's all here, and it's all exceptional.

Of course, Hoshaw's drove of fans has come to expect this sort of well-crafted songwriting. After all, the Omaha singer-songwriter has won five Omaha Arts & Entertainment Awards. And like any successful, ring-leading songslinger, he surrounds himself a highly capable posse, notably lead guitarist Matt Whipkey, who just won two OEA Awards last weekend for his solo work: Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for his amazing Penny Park record.

You can pick up your own copy of Hoshaw's new album on FRIDAY (Feb. 21) at the Waiting Room where his band will perform with Kyle Harvey, who returns to his old stomping grounds from his new home in Colorado to jam with pal Hoshaw.

If you can't make it to the show, get the album at your favorite local music store and online via bradhoshawmusic.com. Listen to a few cuts by clicking on the link.
