Mayhaw Hoons is perhaps best know for his contributions to other Portland bands. He’s played with The Shakey Hands and The Minders and is currently holding down the bass for Kyle Craft and Horse Feathers. But the multi-instrumentalist is proving to be an impressive songwriter in his own right.
In 2013, Hoons released an EP with a band called Spookies. That record proved that he could successfully front a band. Now, he’s poised to release his first full-fledged solo release, Lime Green. Produced by Dustin Dybvig (Talkdemonic, Sallie Ford), the record is packed with nine concise and quirky garage pop jams all of Hoons’ creation.
Lime Green comes tomorrow, January 20th, via Good Cheer Records. Until then, you can hear an advance track called “The Swinger” right here at opbmusic (above).
