  • Location: Austin, Texas, United States of America
  • Label: lost highway records


Anatomy texts might not show it, but the greatest soul and blues music leaves no doubt that the hip bone is directly connected to the heart -- a fact that’s driven home in every note laid down by Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears. As they prove on their Lost Highway debut, Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is, the Austin-based combo has the kind of gritty attitude and deliciously greasy groove-consciousness that’d pass muster in the toughest juke joint.

To paraphrase Ike and Tina Turner, Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is gives Lewis the chance to play nice and easy as well as nice and rough. He and his bandmates take the latter route more often -- as on the fiery, brass-laced opener “Gunpowder” and the unabashedly horndog anthem “Big Booty Woman.” But there’s far more than one trick up their collective sleeve, as borne out by the dark New Orleans march “Master Sold My Baby.”

    Did you summon James Brown through some dark incantation when you made this music? Sick stuff. I'm feeling the groove. Boogie indeed.

    Saw you guys for the first time ACL 2008 and I've been a fan ever since. Almost saw you in amsterdam at the Milky Way but the show was cancelled. Keep playing those blues. Gotta love that Austin music
