Austin soul-shouters Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears have been in regular rotation on Cincinnati's web-based Woxy since the release of the band's Lost Highway debut, Tell 'Em What Your Name Is, at one point even holding down the station's top spot. “Black Joe really stands out when heard next to our predominately indie rock music mix,” says Woxy Program Director Mike Taylor. “It's music that's rooted in Memphis soul and that resonates. It's not overly hip or trendy.” Woxy set up at Ear Studios during SXSW and recorded a number of local bands, including Black Joe Lewis and the Wooden Birds. All of the sessions are available as free downloads and are linked below.
