ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It has been seven years since brother songwriters Teague and Ian Thomas Alexy decided to merge their musical pursuits into roots music project Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank. Their last album, Traveling Show, was recorded in Brooklyn and took them on tour to some of the biggest cities and smallest forgotten towns in the country. Now back home in Minnesota they have recorded Number One Contender - a record manifested through long tours and long sets with songs about an America they’ve seen first hand.
"It was an old Iron Range church-turned-studio in Timberwolf country under a full moon," says Teague Alexy. "My voice felt good, we'd been playing well live, we had plenty of brand new songs and as soon as we walked into that old church we surrendered to it."
The fifteen songs on Number One Contender were recorded live to tape in the north woods of Minnesota in a mere five days. Teague and Ian's New Jersey origins give them a clear understanding of the big-hearted underdog so prevalent in Springsteen's best work. This combined with the patience of rural Northern Minnesota and the tempo of the open road has provided a unique perspective. Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank's emerging strength, however, is the perseverance and know-how to develop an original American sound as platform for two distinct American voices.
