H.R. Gertner, currently on tour behind his most recent release, “Too Damn Heavy”, spins tales of love lost, found, and lost again at the Acoustic Coffeehouse Wednesday May 31st, 2017.
Writing and performing the kind of songs that makes all them city folks wish they were born in the country, and makes all them country folks wish they were born in the city, H.R.’s unique blend of rock sensibilities, songwriter wordsmith, and folk traditions with take you away from your troubles for the evening. Born in Georgia and bred in the swamps of north Florida, H.R.’s music carries with it a sense of the Deep South steeped in the tradition of southern gothic writing, haunted by back roads with no end, love with no chance, and living just on the edge of “polite society”, all as a means to make it to tomorrow.
H.R. has shared the stage with several of your favorite artists touring today, including: Cory Brannon, American Aquarium, Ben Prestige, Lance Howell (Big Shoals), Ashley Heath, Jimbo Mathis, Roadkill Ghost Choir, Wax Wings, and many more. H.R.Gertner has released 13 records for Rattle Trap Records since 2012: 10 solo folk releases and three with his rock band The Throws. H.R. played over 100 shows per year for both 2013 and 2014; in 2015 he slowed down on the road, but kept busy in the studio. After a few years off the road H.R. will be returning to southern highways in the dog days of summer 2017. Come out Wednesday at 8:00pm to see what Chris Martin with the Atlanta Examiner deemed as #8 out of the Top 20 shows in Georgia in 2012 http://www.examiner.com/article/take-a-look-back-at-the-music-from-2012 Regarding H.R.’s set he stated that, “H.R. Gertner out of Gainesville, FL took the stage and reeled of a collection of original Americana laced tunes. Armed with his acoustic guitar Gertner spun light-hearted tales of love, ladies, and beer. Playing music from his multiple releases it was the songs “Mexican Beer”, “Steal Cars” and “Paid On The 15th” that highlighted his set. His music is worth checking out and If he ever rolls through Atlanta again you need to check him out.” http://www.examiner.com/review/the-bohannons-show-atlanta-how-to-rock.
