Featured Artist for April 15, 2010


“It doesn’t matter if you drive a car or a Harley… a mini-van or an 18-wheeler — it all comes down to basic human nature,” says . “There’s a bit of Jekyll and Hyde inside all of us. We want to be domestic animals, but on the other hand we have this natural urge to set out and conquer new worlds. You’ll find this in the heart of the highway.”

That’s exactly where McCoy, and fellow Road Hammers (vocals/guitar) and (bass and backing vocals) found inspiration for their new record, The Road Hammers II. Equal parts blazing southern fried rock and deep soul, The Road Hammers II has all the ingredients that made their debut the perfect record. Born on the road, forged in blood, sweat, concrete and steel, the new album features 11 no-nonsense tracks that are sure to cement the Hammer’s reputation as one of Canada’s most compelling country acts.

Road Hammers II finds McCoy and company stretching out some. It’s sonic and lyrical depth built on a solid, four-year foundation of writing, recording and rolling down the highways together.
