Gayle Lynn & the Hired Hands, Wishing & Bone
A quintessential Country City Girl, San Francisco-based singer-songwriter Gayle Lynn was born and raised by the banks of the Ohio River in Louisville, Kentucky. She writes lingering, soulful songs that resonate - whether channeling joy, loss, poignant memories or good ol bourbon-soaked frivolity. The tunes are crafted by seasoned pros playing an eclectic mix of Americana, roots, alt-country, folk and rock - with a definite dash of twang. The meaningful songs take you on a ride through the American landscape via straightforward stories about real life and all of its beautiful - sometimes devastating - complexities. Shimmery pedal steel and tastefully crafted guitar licks waltz and two-step alongside Gayles emotive vocal stylings on a musical road trip filled with honky-tonks, truck stops, city lights and backcountry pastures.
"Gayle's songs are like a fine Kentucky bourbon, smooth going down with a little kick at the end to make sure you didn't miss one of life's truths."
Brenda and the Reviews, from Bluegrass Breakdown
"Wishing & Bone aka Tom Wishing and Noam Cohen, are consummate showmen. They've been together nearly 40 years and you can see it in their easy camaraderie and witty repartee. Great guitar pickin' from Tom in styles as diverse as Mississippi John Hurt, folk and hard core blues, fabulous accompaniment and solos from mouth-harp master Noam. At first glance (or listen) the music is irreverent, almost humorous, but listen closely and you hear poignant yearnings and hard wired truths." - Kathryne Cassis
"One of our most beloved acts,Wishing & Bone, are two gentleman who know how to have fun-and take the audience with them on a very merry ride. With roots in old time blues and roots music they dip into politics, lost love, new technology and much, much more, sharing a collection of musical stories that will leave you entertained from start to finish." - Ira Marlowe, the Monkey House
