TONY JOE WHITE NEW ALBUM: HOODOO


I love Tony Joe White from way back...

In just a few weeks, the heralded hit-maker and swamp-rocker Tony Joe White will enter his seventh decade. After more than fifty years of playing music, handfuls of chart topping singles, and collaborations with some of the most revered musicians of the century, White is set to release a brand new album, Hoodoo, out on September 17th via Yep-Roc.



White was born in Oak Grove, Louisiana in 1943 and was raised on a cotton farm that was owned by his father. After he finished schooling, following a stint driving a truck in Georgia, he formed a series of bands and took to the road. A trip to Nashville in 1966 was marked by one lucky break after another, and his fruitful recording career began at the fabled country-soul crucible of Monument Records.



Gems like “Polk Salad Annie” and “Rainy Night in Georgia” were just the beginning, as he proceeded to write, record, and perform regularly through the present day, finding great success both at home and abroad. Through the years, his songs have been recorded by everyone from Tina Turner to Elvis Presley to Ray Charles.


Track List:

1) The Gift
2) Holed Up
3) Who You Gonna Hoodoo Now?
4) 9 Foot Sack
5) Alligator, Mississippi
6) The Flood
7) Storm Comin'
8) Gypsy Epilogue
9) Sweet Tooth
