Instead of taking the less scrupulous route to airplay, the band has opted to earn fans the hard-working American way: By touring extensively across the states. Those fans are loyal, too. In 2010, Hoots made history by landing a spot on Kickstarter’s Hall of Fame when their fans chipped in almost $24,000 to help pay for studio time.
Hoots & Hellmouth thanked their fans by giving them two releases, Face First in the Dirt (a four-song EP) and Salt (a full-length album). Both albums beautifully feature their Folk-y guitar picking, boot-stomping rhythms and simple but meaningful lyrics, which combine to create a warm, homey vibe.
If YouTube is any indication, H&H gigs are well worth their fans’ commitment.
