Gary Hoey’s latest release Neon Highway Blues finds him diving deeply into blues/rock sounds without losing his strong, original voice on his instrument – or doing a paint-by-numbers retelling of his record collection. This personal authenticity makes Neon Highway Blues a highly-enjoyable set of music that will appeal to most fans of high-end guitar slinging. He also hosts some truly special guests that contribute a lot of fire to these tunes, such as Eric Gales, Lance Lopez, Josh Smith and Hoey’s own teenage son, Ian Hoey.

Hoey tracked Neon Highway Blues in his home studio while maintaining his typically hectic touring schedule, and it accordingly feels like a labour of love. The tracks have that great, live-band feel and it’s a treat hearing Hoey rip in such a gritty and Earth-bound setting. The album’s eleven tracks display Hoey’s confidence and assuredness alongside the freshness of someone who’s still in the process of discovery. Good stuff.
