Moot Davis at John and Peters in New Hope

After three retro country-based albums that drew favorable comparisons to Hank Williams Sr. and Dwight Yoakam, Goin’ In Hot leans more towards the roadhouse rock than the honky-tonk.

Davis, who grew up in New Jersey listening to classic rock, found inspiration for this album in reading Keith Richards’ 2010 autobiography Life. “That turned me onto open G tuning,” Davis reveals. “Most of the album was written on a 5-string open G Telecaster and that changes things.” This influence can be heard in the fiery guitar work that ignites tracks like “Goin’ In Hot,” “Walk Alone,” “Ragman’s Roll” and “Midnight Train,” while the swamp funk of “Made For Blood” has a Little Feat-like vibe.
