Album Notes
Reviews for Gone Places:

“Hrabko's debut sounds like a record belonging in rotation between Buck Owens and Willie Nelson. It feels familiar, the way a classic country album would; Part blues, part western swing, Gone Places is an album filled with slide guitar, pedal steel and jangly piano notes. The little moments on Gone Places tend to refer to women lost and found and blues picked up along the way. Hrabko can count Lyle Lovett as a contemporary; he shares a number of vocal and stylistic qualities with the Texas singer. Lyrically, though, Hrabko seems to have taken lessons from John Prine: With folk-taught wisdom, Hrabko is too witty to sound completely heartbroken. On the standout track "Lonely Satellite," Hrabko calls out cheerfully: From a frozen phone booth in Nevada/I can hardly hold the dimes/I dial your number, honey/A little humbler every time.”
- Natalie Gallagher, The Pitch

“I hope this isn’t going to be a once in a life-time record from the Kansas City native but the start in a career that though late isn’t without promise both in terms of songwriting craft and musically.... Closing piece ”The Woman Upstairs“ containing piano, fiddle, pedal steel, guitar and sweet harmony vocals is steeped in country as he marries 1960s golden era with that of a decade later, as on a number of occasions the listener enjoys some finely crafted work and promise of better things to come....Awash in smartly fashioned insights of life, a little whimsical dreaming and gentle coercing of one’s senses as on a piano supplemented, jazz toned “Fool In The Song” the texture and tone is nicely varied.”
- Maurice Hope, Americana UK

With a well seasoned baritone voice, these songs pour out of Scott like a vintage, robust, red wine... Scott's wit and insight shine through in every song on this collection. He brings a perspective that can only come from a lifetime of (sometimes painful) observation. His lyrical sketches are effortlessly 'matter-of-fact,' yet so poetic in their phrasing....The music on the album is every bit as expressive as the lyrics. Ranging from Jazz to Blues to Rockabilly to Texas Swing, Gone Places virtually defines the subgenre of Americana that has come to be known as "Porch Music." You put this album on, grab a pitcher of your favorite beverage and sit back on you porch and let the world go by - and maybe even daydream about the gone places in your own memories.”
- Brian Rock, Country Family Reunion

"Scott Hrabko has been making music for over 25 years now, but only recently released his debut album in late 2013. The singer/songwriter composes thoughtful, reflective tunes with a backing band that provides the soul, swing, and twang that gives his music a classic country feel."
