Florida's multiple Best of the Bay-winning Americana makers HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL have a natural instinct for combining folk, pop, rock and classic country influences to create a sound all their own. "Their music has a great energy to it with infectious, sing-along choruses and refrains" remarked NPR's Robin Hilton. American Songwriter called HGWT's music"organic, infectious Americana Pop. Their music has a refreshing immediacy to it." HGWT's music has been featured in a national Chevy TV commercial; multiple episodes of the PBS series Roadtrip Nation; a GTE Federal Credit Union TV and radio ad campaign; and an episode of CBS's The Good Wife. Their albums have spent months on the CMJ Radio Top 200 chart and ranked as high as No. 3 on WMNF 88.5 Tampa's list of most-played albums. HGWT's live performances have been described as rousing, rollicking, energetic and dynamic. "Matt Burke & co. have what it takes to win over any crowd" - Suburban Apologist The band's fourth full-length album "Fiction, Fact or Folktale?" is scheduled to be released this fall. Leading lights of the new Lake Worth crop of roots rock acts, Black Finger is a rock band, and that's it. And that's a good thing. Instead of relying on subgenre flair, the quartet plays straight-ahead, slightly shuffling, twangy tunes meant straight for the heart of the Great American Songbook.
