A Thousand Horses

 “A Thousand Horses are your new favourite Nashville band …their sound is a lively, swaggering party recalling Lynyrd Skynyrd, Black Crowes and the Rolling Stones.” – The Independent

Southern rockers A Thousand Horses have released the video for their new single ‘Travelin’ Man’, taken from their debut album Southernality.

This thumping country rock anthem is everything fans have come to know and love about A Thousand Horses, bursting with soaring guitar licks, thumping drum grooves and hooky harmonica melodies. The video is an energetic mash-up of live performances and backstage footage taken from their huge US tour supporting Jason Aldean.

Frontman Michael Hobby says, “Travelin’ Man is one of our favourite songs to perform live. It brings the energy, and with the harmonica it rocks! It’s always been a fan favourite… it’s a song about being on the road and being a bad ass, always on the move and ready to rock.”

A Thousand Horses stormed onto the UK music scene earlier this year as one of the most talked about bands at this year’s C2C festival at the O2 Arena and cementing their reputation as a phenomenal nine-piece live outfit.

They’ve been turning heads at radio where their UK debut single ‘Trailer Trashed’ sat proudly on the Planet Rock Radio B-list, followed by ‘First Time’ and then ‘Smoke’, both of which were added to the A-List as well as C-Listing at BBC Radio 2. Following suit, the band’s latest single and title-track ‘Southernality’ was added to Planet Rock’s B-List.

The band have been nominated for ‘Best New Band’ at this year’s Classic Rock Awards and were also nominated for the Academy of Country Music Award for ‘New Vocal Duo or Group Of The Year’ and were hotly tipped by Rolling Stone Country and USA Today for ‘Smoke’, with its video – which now has close to 16 million views – also receiving a nomination at the CMT Music Awards.

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
