Abbie Gardner, the fiery Dobro player with an infectious smile has been touring with Americana darlings Red Molly for the past eleven years. After gracing stages from Denver to Denmark, from Australia to Austin, the band decided to take an indefinite hiatus in 2015, so Abbie is striking out on her own! No stranger to solo performing, she has three CDs to draw from, each with award-winning songs. Tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, ride the back of her by-now familiar, formidable slide guitar licks. She channels Lucinda and Bonnie, but remains pure Abbie. She has been recognized as an award-winning songwriter, as well, with such accolades as; 2008 Lennon Award Winner (folk) for “The Mind of a Soldier” and 2008 American Songwriter Magazine Grand Prize Lyric Winner for “I’d Rather Be”. Her song “Honey on My Grave” was also published in Sing Out! Magazine in 2008.

“With a confidence that can only be earned, Gardner bursts out with a national steel guitar and a ballsy blues on the opening cut “Break It Slow.” It’s an unprecedented romp, fully of gnarly guitar lines and lyrics reminiscent of Lucinda Williams or Bonnie Raitt.” – Eli Peterson, Twangville

"...honest-to-goodness country splendor anchored by fiddle playing and down-home vocal charm that endear immediately to even the lightest of fans of the genre...” inWilmington

“…catty, cool, authentic…smashing the sounds straight outta Nashville.” philadelphiaweekly

HURRICANE HOSS has blown through the juke joints and watering holes of America, the perfect example of a classical good-girl gone outlaw. She’s shot whiskey in the Midwestern Wilds, danced to zydeco in Louisiana, fallen in love in the Rockies, and two-stepped on top of broken hearts in Nashville. With fiddle, banjo, and guitar in tow, Hoss sings the stories of her travels and travails, as well as traditional songs of the American experience. Fans of Western Swing (ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL, THE TIME JUMPERS) and vintage country (PATSY CLINE, GLEN CAMPBELL) will easily find a place for Hoss in their ears and hearts.

Hoss’s newest album, “Shoulda Said Nothin’”, showcases award-winning fiddle playing and songwriting, as well as members of her all-star band THE PERFECT STORM.The new album in it’s entirety takes listeners on a journey through the full gamut of emotions. Tongue-in-cheek ditties like “I Should Have Said Nothing” (penned by Ross Bellenoit) and “Down the Road” poke fun at former lovers and Hoss herself; “Modena” is a love song to a home after a life on the road; “Only Mistake” and “Rocksalt and Nails” (written by Utah Phillips) tell stories of betrayal and abandonment that speak to the sweetness of Hurricane Hoss, hiding under the veneer of a Country and Western superhero.
