Hank Woji will be performing
at Bert’s Bar & Grill in Matlacha Wednesday, Sept. 18
"I've toured Florida at least three or four times a year since 2005," he said. "I have family in Fort Myers."
Music News said of Woji, "Hank Woji stands out from the pack of singer/songwriters by conjuring a sound that is at the same time richly textured and intimate. Singing in a voice that is slightly hoarse and understated. Woji evokes the best elements of Arlo Guthrie and Cat Stevens."
His performance will include 75 percent of his own music, which he describes as Americana - roots, folk and country.
Woji has produced four CDs as a songwriter, with his latest, "Holy Ghost Town," released in July.
The reviews have been overwhelmingly positive for "Holy Ghost Town." Maurice Hope of Flyin' Shoes Review writes, "Awash in descriptive lyrics that seep into one's senses invitingly, and like good whisky it has a mellow and relaxing feel to it as generous helpings of mandolin, Dobro, violin, harmony vocals and harmonica help see a little piece of Texas be transported worldwide.
Woji, like many musicians, started playing when he was a kid. His career started as a bassist with rock 'n roll bands on the same Jersey shore as Bruce Springsteen. It was in 2001 when he moved to Terlingua, Texas, that he started writing songs.
He said he lives in a little desert community right on the Mexican border, described as a great, little community for singers and artists.
"It is a great place to sit and write," Woji said.
