“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. Their music has a refreshing immediacy to it.”
HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL’s music has been featured in a national Chevy TV commercial, as well as the PBS series Roadtrip Nation, CBS’s The Good Wife, Travel Channel’s Expedition Unknown and the Netflix series The Ranch. Their live performances have been described as rousing, rollicking, energetic and dynamic. Singer-songwriter-guitarist Matt Burke enthusiastically leads the band through a collection of songs that run the gamut from foot-stomping front-porch spirituals to strum-punk rave-ups, hill-country historicals and more.
HGWT’s Recent release, Science from an Easy Chair, an ambitious full-length concept album about a British explorer’s ill-fated Antarctic expedition has been called “a root-rock opus… HGWT’s crowning masterpiece” (Bucket Full Of Nails), “easily HGWT’s best” (Creative Loafing), and “a solid record from start to finish loaded with songs that will stand up over time” (No Depression). And the new CD, Strange Chemistry, was just released!
