Don’t Miss: Jason Boland & The Stragglers @ The Hamilton Live, 9/30/18

Jason Boland & The Stragglers released Hard Times Are Relative, their ninth studio album, via Thirty Tigers in May. The Texas country quartet next perform at The Hamilton on Sunday, Sept. 30.

With his distinctive baritone, Jason Boland is first and foremost a storyteller. As ever on Hard Times Are Relative, he sings his tales with The Stragglers, a crew of honky-tonk aces including Grant Tracy (bass), Brad Rice (drums), and Nick Worley (fiddle, mandolin).

“It’s an upbeat album — a lot of fast songs, but it doesn’t try to be fast,” Jason said. “It just sits in the pocket.”

Watch Jason Boland sing “Hard Times Are Relative” live at MusicFest 2016 on YouTube:

“On their new release, Hard Times Are Relative, the band challenges our relationship with our past and our acceptance of the inevitability of change. This is intelligent, provocative fodder delivered with a danceable, edgy honky-tonk fervor that at times takes your focus off the lyrics as you bob and shake to the music,” said Jim Hynes in a review for Glide Magazine.
