Will Hoge may be the hardest-working musician you’ve never heard of. A Nashville guitarist who traded his teaching dreams for songwriting, Hoge tried his hand in minor bands before getting noticed as a solo artist at the turn of the century. Despite not having his own hit song (and, oddly, watching as another band earned a #1 spot covering one of his tunes), Hoge has toured steadily for more than a decade, including regular stops in St. Louis. Hoge performs Friday, Aug. 10, as part of the Open Highway Music Festival at Off Broadway. More!
