Wellington Folk Rock Band
The Hobnail Boots have shortened their name. That's not all that's changed.
There is a new member, Bonnie Riley. Originally hailing from The Canadian Maritimes, Bonnie brings an outstanding country flavoured voice, her guitar, and a bucket load of personality to the band. There is also a new album titled Baggage released in July with an accompanying tour. The album features 9 originals plus a stunning cover of The Warratahs classic "Hands Of My Heart".
Featuring "Jo Moir's barnstorming fiddle", the award winning songwriting of Rob Joass, spectacular harmonies, and over 100 years of collective performance experience, The Hobnail live show is one not to be missed.
Baggage Album Review
Our 2012 album "Baggage" got reviewed on a Dutch website - below is a translation of the review.
Although pop rock formations Crowded House with Do not Dream It's Over and Split Enz 'I Hope I Never at the international music for goosebumps moments made and garage rock sounds of The Datsuns and The D4 on this side of the earth reasonably have been successful remains music from New Zealand regularly to our country pass.
With his film adaptation of Tolkien Books In The Ban Of The Ring and the recently premiered judicata first part of the Hobbit movie producer Peter Jackson makes sure that we still talk about the country with breathtaking scenery.
The fertile musical ground far from exhausted proves the five piece band from Wellington Hobnail for years with their self-released records.
Five years and a marital
separation between two band members more, the new acoustic folk
rock album "Baggage" the opportunity to let you carry against a
backdrop of a rich Irish musical tradition, where you also can
drown in the fine harmonies between singer and
multi-instrumentalist Rob Joass and violinist Jo Moire.
It is a source of emotional inspiration with the mind of Rob Joass, the creative brain behind Hobnail, a bungee cord.
On "Baggage" he wiebeligheid his mental and emotional issues in a divorce situation plays speak.
A depressing plate? Earlier uplifting and inspiring album, which also is dominated by Robs fiftieth anniversary and self-mockery with a dash of black humor as weapon relativism serves. "Baggage" is pleasant to listen to and feels like a warm coat.
An album with songs like Position Vacant, The Old Me and the eponymous album title musically quick secrets and which singer Rob Joash terms with the past and simultaneously makes a step towards a new future.
