Press Info

Rick Woodward and Rick Seale call their music an acoustic gumbo, and rightly so, they are the Hoodoo Papas. This guitar duo from the heart of central Louisiana strut their stuff with a heapin? helpin? of down home music straight from their hearts telegraphed to their six-strings on their new release Past Due. They not only pluck and strum out some licks, they can sing up a storm as well. Their infectious blend of rock-country-blues-folk sounds so full and distinctive you will wonder if you are listening to a four-piece band rather than two papas strumming their guitars and belting out bluesy country fried numbers filled with their with Louisiana soul.

By the third listen, I wasn?t even a tad tired of hearing this album, it?s like a five o?clock shadow that never goes away! I loved every second of this and I say that without an inkling of reservation. . . Okay, can I gush anymore? This music had me comin? back for seconds in a heartbeat. I will bet that it works that way for you too,

Rick Seale and Rick Woodward are just two regular guys, but with guitars in hand, they can turn an entire room into a raging fire of blues and rock. Armed with their own brand of Americana, this award winning, down-home, songwriting duo is a powerhouse of musical soul. With their recordings and live shows, the Hoodoo Papas have made a name for themselves as audiences line up to feast their ears on genuine Hoodoo ?acoustic gumbo,? a spicy blend of rock, folk and country.

The two Ricks have been playing and writing music together for 12 years, and their Americana sound has been pulling in fans and listeners every step of the way. Their first CD, Mojo Hat, earned rave reviews from audiences and critics alike, even catching the ear of blues legend BB King. Pulling inspiration from countless artists, from Jim Croce to Johnny Cash and James Taylor, the Hoodoo Papas simmer out a sound that carries any listener right down to bayou country.

The Hoodoo Papas are currently promoting their new album, Past Due, and they?re bringing the gumbo along with them. With deep-driving riffs and a down-home attitude, the new release brings in the culture of their native Louisiana and sits any fan down for a wild ride of down-home soul. Listening to the burning tunes on the CD, there?s no question that these two love and respect their music, and they turn that love into a real good time for everyone.
