Will Hoge is one of many who came to Nashville looking for a big break in Music City. It’s a safe bet he didn’t expect to find it via a van collision. On the heels of a horrible scooter accident that took him off the road for the first time in years and derailed sessions for The Wreckage, his second release for Rykodisc, Hoge is dropping The Living Room Sessions. Recorded over two days in his Nashville home, the EP combines stripped-down versions of five Wreckage tracks with a cut from his 2003 release, Blackbird on a Lonely Wire. Hoge sounds like a Nashville Tom Petty with a strong dose of Chris Robinson in his more soulful moments. “Too Late, Too Soon” is probably the best of the tracks, but all of them seem ripe for rock, pop or country chart status.
