As well, Hank has just released a full-length Gospel-billy album – SINNER YOU BETTER GET READY!!!.

Stay tuned here for details!
Born in Indiana, Hank started out as a busker on the streets of Edmonton and played bass guitar in a bunch of bands, making CDs, touring the country, performing live on nation-wide MuchMusic TV and eventually getting signed to Attic Records in Toronto. Hank fronted the skiffle-billy combo – The Silver Bishops (with Jon Card of D.O.A./ SNFU / The SubHumans and Dove Brown of Jr. Gone Wild) and sang with his hillbilly band – The Hoosier Daddies – in the clubs on Queen Street in Toronto (including The Cadillac Lounge and The Horseshoe Tavern, where he opened for Robert Gordon and Los Straightjackets) before performing on The Rockabilly Hall Of Fame stage, at the largest North American Rockabilly Festival – The Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender.
Hank’s other releases include a 4 song, vinyl, 7 inch 45 rpm record called ‘Crazy Night‘ and his first full-length album – LOUD FAST & OUT OF CONTROL!!! – with those 4 songs and 13 more.
