GRAMMY-nominated recording artist Will Hoge has partnered with Thirty Tigers as announced by company Co-Founder David Macias. The critically acclaimed singer-songwriter is slated to release his ninth studio album entitled NEVER GIVE IN via the independent company on October 15, 2013. The album is the follow-up to his lauded 2011 release NUMBER SEVEN.
“Will Hoge is a versatile talent who has found success as a writer, performer, and recording artist and we are honored to work with him. We look forward to many more successes to come!” shared Thirty Tigers’ David Macias.
Said Hoge, “The team at Thirty Tigers are all great folks that I’ve either worked with before in other arenas or have always wanted to work with. The music they’ve been able to build already and the things we can do together have me really excited to be part of the roster.”
NEVER GIVE IN is a life motto for the Nashville native who catapulted into the national spotlight in 2012. Spending the early part of the year supporting Dierks Bentley’s arena headlining tour, Hoge was introduced to his first dose of mainstream country. The release of the Eli Young Band platinum-selling smash “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” which he co-wrote with Eric Paslay, garnered an enormous amount of buzz at Country radio, earning Hoge nominations for the 2013 GRAMMY Country Song of the Year, 2013 ACM Song of the Year and 2012 CMA Song of the Year. While raising Hoge’s profile as a hit songwriter, the song also introduced his music and records to the Country music audience; a decade removed from his major label release on Atlantic Records, CARO– USEL.
Since his first independent record in 2000, Hoge has crisscrossed North America playing as many as 220 shows in one year. His stage shows are equal ingredients of sweat, charisma and rock & roll revival which have landed him coveted opening slots with John Mellencamp, Pistol Annies, Shinedown, Sugarland and ZZ Top.
