"I approach the guitar the same way I approach any other instrument," says Daryl Hance. "I just play shit that I think sounds cool and that doesn't feel awkward. And if I am playing something that feels awkward, I just keep scaling back until it feels right. In fact, I'll just keep on scaling all the way back until I stop playing altogether if that's what it takes to make something sound good." Based in Jacksonville, Fla., Hance is the longtime slide guitar legend with JJ Grey & Mofro, and this is his first outing as a singing and songwriting (and guitar-slinging) bandleader. With Anthony Cole on drums, and Shane Platten on bass, the sound is "bluesy funky rock music focused on songs and strong grooves," Hance explains. "Largely a sum of all my biggest influences rooted in older blues, funk, and rock music." Listen & learn: http://www.myspace.com/darylhance.
