A self described “Jersey Shore Ex-Pat turned West Texas Desert Rat”, for over 20 years, Hank Woji played in some of The Garden State’s most dynamic and innovative bands, performing in clubs and concert halls from Virginia to Ontario, in styles ranging from Blues and R&B to Reggae and Rock & Roll to County Rock and Afrobeat!
In the Spring of 2001 Hank moved to Houston, TX, fell in with a bunch of great Texas songwriters, and found a new musical voice as a Singer Songwriter. But destiny turned a page and it was his chance move, in 2009, to the far West Texas desert town of Terlingua that has most reshaped his life and his music.
Critics have described Hank’s music as “acoustic-wielding, sharply observed, Americana all the way” and being “in the best tradition of the Texas troubadours like Guy Clarke, Townes Van Zandt and Butch Hancock” and that “His troubadour style also comes very close to the style of Woody Guthrie or Pete Seeger, or as we heard on ‘Nebraska’ from Bruce Springsteen.”
Hank has released six self-produced CDs: Medallion in 2005; American Dreams in 2008; There Was A Time in 2010; Holy Ghost Town in 2013; The Working Life in 2014; and Highways, Gamblers, Devils and Dreams in 2023.
Over the last 40 years Woji, and his bands, have shared the stage with, such diverse artists as:
Jonathan Byrd, David Massengill, Amy Speace, Ray Bonneville, The Radiators, Jimmy Cliff, Hot Tuna, Shake Russell, Dana Cooper, Darden Smith, Sara Hickman, Annie Wenz, The Flying A’s, Greg Klyma, West Texas Exiles, Ronnie Elliott, Jimmy Cliff, Spook Handy, Trout Fishing in America, Susan Herndon, Jesse Dayton, Rebekah Pulley, The Wailers, Johnny Winter, Clarence Clemons, The Nighthawks, Bob Livingston, Grant Peeples, Spook Handy, Jaimee Harris, David Amram, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock, Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen.
Hank is a proud member of AFM Local 1000 and tours nationally, performing regularly at festivals, coffeehouses, theaters, clubs and house concerts as a solo singer songwriter, in various duo and trio configurations, and with his full band The Hank Woji Conspiracy.
