Rockin' & Ridin'

Album Notes
Happy Horse Band emerged from the studio in July 2013 with Rockin’ & Ridin’, a 10-track collection of original tunes produced by Darrell “Dr. D” Vernum. The opening track, “Looking For A Pearl”, is a full-blown anthem of searching for companionship. The record then travels through quick-witted gallops like “Breadcrumb Trail” and “Let's Go Dashing”, the alt-country groove of “Rained Out On Friday”, the forlorn folk of “Night Herder”, and the homespun fun of “Camp Song”. We are asked in the opener: “Would you like to sing a song with me, maybe take a little trip?” Sure. “Strap on your spurs, tie on your hat!”

Guest artist Phoebe Hunt’s lead vocals soar on “Baby Divine”. Her tasty fiddle playing and vocal harmonies are sprinkled generously throughout the disc. Dominick Leslie throws down hot mandolin licks on "Scout, the Mighty Paint Horse" and others. George Coyne’s searing lap steel on "Mischief On My Mind" will make you want to rob a bank (just be mindful of the repercussions when the sheriff arrives). "Won't Rain On Texas” is an epic piece inspired by the Bastrop County Complex Fire and ongoing drought. Other guest artists featured on the CD are: Beaux Graham (bass), Bob Landgraff (harmonica and vocals), Colin Guerra (guitar) and Dr. D (guitar and keyboards).

Happy Horse Band is: Hollis Wayne (lead vocals, harmonica), DB Rouse (lead vocals, guitar), John Dunn (bass) and Pete Langhans (drums). With Rockin’ & Ridin’, HHB has created a lush sonic oasis that pushes the envelope of Americana.
