Biography:

We play scorch folk: Original songs with an Appalachian root and a blistering, modern take on Dock Boggs, the Carter Family and other vintage mountain artists. Dustbowl ballads, stompgrass rides and hillbilly trance. It's primitive-modernist music that'll feed your soul and blow the doors off your Ford.

Press:

"My favorite band is a group called the Jon Hogan String Band, out of Austin, I believe. This band not only produces great, foot-stompin’ Texas music, but they are all absolutely fantastic entertainers! It’s a joy to just sit back and watch them go. Wow!"
Al Barlow - Lone Star Music Magazine

"Jon Hogan and Maria Moss are one of the most entertaining duos I've ever seen…Hogan's lyrics, and Moss's incredible finger picking on the guitar are something that everyone needs to see.....Get out to see this band as soon as you can."
Tom Macaleer - The Examiner

““…three new Foley/Hogan co-writes are the gems of Every Now and Then, because in Hogan’s respectful hands, Foley’ bygone pensive wisdom comes alive… “Can’t Always Cry” expertly captures the soul and simplicity that distinguished Foley’s best work, while “Safe in the Arms of Love,” beautifully augmented by Maria Moss’s fingerpicking…” ”
Texas Music Magazine

““...a first-rate show...Jon Hogan and Maria Moss…are a delight, both as people and musicians...complementing each other with their collective story-telling, harmonies, guitar playing and picking styles….Together they provided the rest of us with a wonderful evening I won’t soon forget." ”

"Poetic, exciting, sometimes sad but above all beautiful" Altcountryforum, Netherlands

"Hogan and Moss were… Exhilarating…fun, heartbreaking, wild, crazy, epic, microcosmic, toe-tapping, head-nodding, gut busting, soul searching... By the end, they had made us live an extra year of our lives in a couple of hours."
The Navasota Current

““They could have been dropped in the 1920s with Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and the like without ever turning a head. Their set was fun from beginning to end. The music bounced….kept the audience enthralled and the songs shined. A major highlight of the set were the songs Hogan performed from lyrics he received that belonged to the late Blaze Foley. Those who love Townes Van Zandt are also huge fans of Blaze Foley, so hearing some new words from this legendary songwriter was a definitely treat.” ”
