Holy Cow! Does this CD Rock!!! I am blown away by this release! Please sign me up for the family reunion of the Hobart’s! This album is filled with quality music to the 100th degree!  Can you tell I love it!  I don’t think I’ve run across a better written album this year!  Not one bad song on this album. If you like Rock, Pop, and Americana music you will love this album!

Jon Dee Graham, Freedy Johnston and Susan Cowsill are “The Hobart Brothers featuring Lil’ Sis Hobart”. Helping out the family on this CD are Andrew DuPlantis on Bass Guitar and Russ Broussard on drums. “At LeastWe Have Each Other”features 10 songs co-written by the three singer-songwriters in the studio. It was recorded in late 2010 by John and Mary Podio atTop Hat Recording in Austin,Texas.

I don’t even know where to start naming my favorite tracks here. They are all my favorites! First Susan Cowsill is one of my favorite writers today. I loved her when she recorded with the Continental Drifters and her solo work is out of this world! She writes a mean song and her voice is true to every note she sings. Freedy Johntson is another fantastic songwriter that blows me away. Jon Dee Graham is new to me, but if all his work is like this I’m a fan! Anyway back to the songs. I can’t pick a favorite here. They are all that good! The one’s that really caught my ear and had me by the collar are: Ballad of little sis (Didn’t I love her) a toe tapping smile grooving song from the first bar, Why don’t I hunt a bluesy rock tune that gets you grooving from the first guitar chord, I never knew there would be you a very classy 60’s Pop style song, All things being equal is anAmericana style song done to perfection, and I am sorry, a sad tale that really gets you in the heart.

As you can tell I love this CD! I hope that the Hobart Brothers and Lil’ Sis Hobart hit the road and come toWisconsin and rock us all night long with their fantastic music. This CD is a MUST for your collection! Go buy it!

    Hi, I just “re-discovered” you singing on Treme Season 2. Fantastic! I still remember the single “Hair!” from my college freshman year at the Student Union. Long time fan, one could say.
