Kenny Hotopp's debut release on Philville Records, Truth Be Told, is a perfect encapsulation of his current approach to songwriting, highlighting stories and characters that feel like they were overheard between drinks and jukebox spins in a Midwestern roadhouse.


The tracks deftly bounce from genres and influences that touch on bluegrass, to R&B, blues, and hints of psychedelic country--but retain a through-line consistency that links them all together as a collection of short stories or vignettes.

This is the first collaboration between Matthew R. Sayles and Hotopp. Sayles produced, engineered, mastered, and played nearly all the backing instruments on the album, with exception of up-right bass & saxophone  being performed by Sayles's studio collaborator Jerod Kaszynski, and the debut of Gloria Howerton singing backing vocals on "Little White Lies."


This is a limited (100 only) release on 140 gram vinyl. These will sell fast, so order one in advance, and make sure you snag a copy before they're gone!
