Gram Parsons Derry Down welcomes Have Gun, Will Travel and Joshua Reilly. Have Gun, Will Travel has a natural instinct for combining folk, pop, rock, classic country and punk influences to create a sound all their own. "Their music has a great energy to it with infectious, sing-along choruses and refrains" remarked NPR’s Robin Hilton. American Songwriter called HGWT’s music "organic, infectious Americana Pop.
HGWT’s highly anticipated, fifth album Science from an Easy Chair was recently released on This Is American Music. This full-length concept album is based entirely on British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and his 1914-16 Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Produced by Shawn Kyle and recorded in Tampa, Florida, Science delivers its own interpretation of this amazing story of survival and endurance. Along with HGWT’s own distinctive instrumentation, the musical framework of the album is rife with luscious string arrangements, crooning horn sections, and rich percussion.
