Circuit of the Americas
"...Warren Hood, Emily Gimble, and Willie Pipkin are the Brewbirds, who play every Sunday at Strange Brew, 8pm. When the bandleader, son of late Austin fiddler Champ Hood, attended the Berklee School of Music, he took home the String Achievement Award..."
"...The Warren Hood Band(Red Parlor)..."
"...Margaret and my dad [Champ Hood] knew each other, and since I was going to my dad's shows since I was 5, we probably met then. She watched me grow up, start playing, then do my own thing..."
"...I truck down here from the San Francisco Bay where the weather is easy, but the music scene is controlled by folks who would be better off looking to a musical prodigy and a product of the scene, someone who understands the musical structure and history of Austin and its musical roots. I'm surprised Warren Hood isn't appointed the musical ambassador for Austin..."
"...Warren Hood grins as bright as the summer sun. The bounce in his step carries him into Threadgill's World Headquarters on this warming June day, and he's greeted with familiarity..."
"...Price has since moved to San Diego, but she left a huge hole in the SoCo venue’s schedule that left owner Steve Wertheimer scratching his head as how to fill it. What took its place is markedly different, yet retains enough of the vibe that made Hippie Hour special. Dubbed Planet Casper, it’s anchored by Casper Rawls, longtime Price accompanist and Leroi Brother, and a rotating cast of musicians and songwriters that have included Price alums Scrappy Jud Newcomb, Warren Hood, and Rich Brotherton, as well as David Grissom, Earl P..."
"...Return to Austin High might have been the most important set at the Austin Music Awards since the Big Boys shared the bill with the Fabulous Thunderbirds at the second-ever Austin prom – Thursday, March 8, 1984. Last year's AMA centerpiece, a reunion of next-generation live music natives – Gary Clark Jr., Eve Monsees, Shakey Graves, Warren Hood, etc..."
"...In the previous millennium, her backing strings included A-list shredders Denny Freeman, Derek O'Brien, Casper Rawls, and David Grissom. Now, and for the last decade, fiddler Warren Hood, his melodically gifted cousin and guitarist Marshall Hood, and hard-pickin' guitarist Willie Pipkin have kicked around solos and bright harmonies...."
"...Alongside David Ball and the late Champ Hood, Hyatt founded Uncle Walt's Band, one of Austin's most popular acts in the 1970s and early 1980s. The acoustic trio's tight harmonies and swath of talent melded an amalgam of influences, folk and country cut with an easy jazz swing and a soulful lilt..."
"...1997: Texas Tornados with Roy Head, 8½ Souvenirs, Sexton Brothers Sextet, Lou Ann Barton & Jimmie Vaughan; Townes Van Zandt tribute: Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Mickey White, Brad Fordham, Champ Hood, Kimmie Rhodes, Joe Ely, J.T. Van Zandt, Will Sexton..."
"...By very definition, you can't win a race against time, but Champ Hood tried his damnedest. As a result, there's a CD release this Sunday at the Continental Club for Bon Haven, Hood's first and only solo album, which he had been working on up until his passing in November..."
"...Warren Hood & the HoodlumsMomo's, Jan. 24..."
"...Calling from a seaside vacation home in Charleston, S.C., albeit not his, fiddler Warren Hood and the rest of Blue Light Special are enjoying their summer jobs as touring musicians. "We've been fishing, crabbing, four-wheeling," he says..."
"...Warren Hood's All Good in the Hood..."
"...Best String Player winner Warren Hood..."
"...Riding the Church on Monday quintet straight into classic Fifties jazz, his award-approved occupation already angles for greatness along the lines of the essentials downstairs – Dale Watson, James McMurtry, Jon Dee Graham. Warren Hood, quite possibly the Lone Star State's next Johnny Gimble (ask new Texas Music Officer Brendon Anthony), fiddles a magnificent seventh in the all-star reunion of sorts..."
"...Warren Hood(Good Dinner)..."
"...Other reflections include Jack Wilson ruminating on the balance of ego and id, Rosie Flores revealing "Music allows me to feel any emotion I need to attach myself to at any given moment," Dale Watson declaring his muse is always love (prominently deceased girlfriend Terri Lynn Herbert), and Shinyribs' Kevin Russell crediting childhood imaginary friend Mata for guiding his music...."
"...At the height of its success in the early 1980s, Uncle Walt's Band was already a legacy revived, reborn by posthumous popularity. The Spartanburg, S.C.-born trio of Hyatt, Champ Hood, and David Ball was as much Austin in spirit as it was indefinable in sound..."
