about

Hank Woji — Singer/Songwriter, Terlingua, Texas

A self described “Jersey Shore Ex-Pat turned West Texas Desert Rat”, for over 20 years, as a bassist, 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, picked up his acoustic guitar, 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 five self-produced CDs: Medallion 2005; American Dreams 2008; There Was A Time 2010; Holy Ghost Town 2013; and The Working Life 2014. He has also just produced, Just Words, the new CD by Florida based singer-songwriter Eileen Kozloff, in 2017

Over the last 35 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 Gallup, Annie Wenz, Emma’s Revolution, The Flying A’s, David Rovics, Greg Klyma, Bonnie Whitmore, Colin Gilmore, Ronnie Elliott, Spook Handy, Rebekah Pulley, Room Full of Blues, Johnny Winter, Clarence Clemons, Garry Tallent, John Hammond Jr., The Nighthawks, Bob Livingston, Grant Peeples, Spook Handy, Jeff Talmadge, Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Kinky Friedman, Bruce Springsteen, David Amram and Pete Seeger.

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, with his duo partner Eileen Kozloff as Woji & Kozloff, and with his full band The Hank Woji Conspiracy.
