Hank Topless has lived out the storyline of many a honky-tonk song in his 30-year career. His music, reflective of that, is stark and fiercely honest.
Here’s how he describes himself:
‘Sad songs, bad songs, death songs, love songs, get-lost songs, come-back songs, weird songs…mostly in the downtown club / pub / cafe / event scene in Tucson. Will and do travel. Sat in with the great Les Paul (October, 2005)…had breakfast at 1AM with the inimitable Kinky Friedman…was the diva Linda Ronstadt’s gardener. Just had a great time opening for former Dwight Yoakam guitarist Pete Anderson. Others with whom I’ve shared stages or for whom I’ve provided support include Junior Brown, Kinky Friedman, Joe Ely, Al Perry, Skip Heller, Robbie Fulks, Tom Walbank, Scott Biram, Jesse Dayton, Split Livers, Al Foul, Gary Stockdale, Kevin Daly, Reverend Payton’s Big Damn Band, and Calexico. Finalist in multiple iterations of yearly “Best Of Tucson,” in the country music category.’
As for his sparse guitar style, he points to the influence of several blues players who played in a simple, largely fingerpicking style, such as Mississippi John Hurt, the Rev. Gary Davis and Skip James.
