Album Notes
"Royalty Check Hotel" is the newest CD from Milwaukee journalist/author/songwriter Jim Hoehn, described by one newspaper reviewer as "a master of the rowdy tall tale rendered with novelistic detail."
Produced by legendary Texas guitarist John Inmon (Lost Gonzo Band), “Royalty Check Hotel” also includes Radoslav Lorkovic on accordion; Bob Livingston on harmony vocals and Henry Rohlfs on trumpet.
For a career journalist with a musical philosophy of six strings, five fingers, three chords, no problem, Hoehn has carved out a successful niche as a late-blooming performing songwriter.
Since first stumbling out of the pressbox, Hoehn has maintained a time-available schedule of dates throughout the Midwest and across the country, drawing an eclectic audience of sportswriters, rugby players, Parrotheads and the occasional normal person.
Hoehn has opened for a veritable who's who of American songwriters, including Jerry Jeff Walker, Don McLean, Robert Earl Keen, Junior Brown, Todd Snider, Jack Ingram, Warren Zevon, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Steve Forbert, Kinky Friedman, Roger McGuinn, David Wilcox, Charlie Robison and James McMurtry.
His songwriting has led to performances at prestigious music festivals hosted in Texas and Oklahoma by the likes of Gary P. Nunn and Larry Joe Taylor and an appearance on the Mitch Albom national TV show.
He has appeared at numerous Parrothead phlockings such as the annual Meeting of the Minds in Key West; Pardi Gras in New Orleans; Migration in Las Vegas; Flipperstock in St. Louis; Six-String Music Festival in New Orleans; and This Hotel Room in Minneapolis.
His recordings include “Deadline Penitentiary,” "Playa del Pressbox" and "Live at RACAfest" as well as three volumes of "Thongs In The Key Of Life," compilations of tropical music by the best writers on the sunburn circuit, which he produced.
Hoehn also is the author of the award-winning book, "The Father's Guide to Birth, Babies and Loud Children," and the host of the monthly radio show, "The Three-Chord Barbecue" on Radio Jimmy Dreamz.
As a purveyor of six-string propaganda, he's probably not destined for Letterman or Leno anytime soon, but then again, he's not bad ... maybe even worth the price of a babysitter.

High Five
Worth the price of admission for "Tedium of Cool" alone. Gorgeous song, and great CD from start to finish. Same is true of "Deadline Penitentiary". Wish "Playa del Pressbox" was available...
