Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank’s new album Number One Contender was recorded live to tape over four wintry days and nights in the north woods of Minnesota. Named one of the best Minnesota-made albums of 2013 by Star Tribune, Number One Contender captures the energy and emotion of the Hobo Nephews’ sound more than ever before. Teague and Ian’s New Jersey roots squarely align them with the spirit of the big-hearted underdog. This, combined with the whisper of the wind through the pines, and the cadence of the open road, has lent Number One Contender a unique sound.
The Hobo Nephews’ emerging strength, however, is the knowledge and perseverance to develop an original American sound as platform for two distinct American voices.
