Publicado en 2019 por el sello Mascot ‘Neon Highway Blues’ es el título del tercer trabajo de estudio del guitarrista de blues rock Gary Hoey. Edición en formato digipack, contiene 11 canciones y colaboraciones de Lance López, Eric Gales o Josh Smith.
Starting with 2013’s ‘Deja Blues’ and continuing with 2016’s ‘Dust & Bones’, Gary Hoey has tapped into his early musical influences and applied his own feral skills to take the Blues format in a unique direction. He stays in the same lane on his latest endeavor, ‘Neon Highway Blues’, steering its 11 tracks with the confidence and assuredness of a veteran and the freshness of someone who’s still in the process of discovery and refinement — with the help of famous friends such as Eric Gales, Lance Lopez, Josh Smith and Hoey’s 17-year-old son Ian.
“I really wanted to make sure this album had a lot of blues on it,” says Hoey, who self-produced ‘Neon Highway Blues’ and recorded it at his home studio in New Hampshire. “It’s funny because sometimes you can set out to do a blues record and halfway through you realize there’s not actually that many blues songs. So I keep sticking to the blues and tried to get that to be a strong part of this record — and still put some other songs there that the die-hard, long-time fans would like, some instrumentals and some rockin’ stuff. There’s definitely a variety here.”
