New CD 'Love is the Devil' June 2014
Pork Chop Willie’s debut national album Love is the Devil lights a new fire under America’s musical melting pot, bringing fresh heat to the Mississippi hill country blues tradition while blending in elements of Americana, rock, alt-country and even classical music. The 13-song disc serves as a bridge between those genres, the past and the present, and the band’s Magnolia State inspirations and Manhattan home. Led by singer-guitarist Bill Hammer and violinist Melissa Tong, Pork Chop Willie is fueled by grooves, grit, honesty and passion as well as a unique blend of down-home and uptown musicianship. The band can be heard regularly at their Hill Country Music Nights at the Shrine World Music Venue in Harlem, and on the road at Juke Joints from Mississippi to Tennessee to New York.
