Jason Elmore & Hoodoo Witch
“RISE UP LIGHTS” is the new studio album by Jason Elmore & Hoodoo Witch, available worldwide for digital and physical release on October 31, 2023. It is the band's first album in 6 years and it showcases the hard rock side of the band's sound. While previous albums have been a mix of rock and blues, this one has more in common with the classic hard-rock sounds of the 1970's through the 1990's. The result is a 44-minute sonic excursion into familiar but refreshing melodies, harmonies, grooves, interesting lyrics, with riffs and guitar solos that are reminiscent of those golden days of heavy rock music. It's a classic rock era throwback, for sure.
