FOGHAT: SONIC MOJO ALBUM

This episode of Big Blend Radio features Scott Holt, lead vocalist and guitarist for FOGHAT, who talks about his music career that includes being Buddy Guy’s guitarist for 10+ years, working with FOGHAT, and their new album, “Sonic Mojo.” Watch there in the YouTube player or download the podcast at Acast.com.


“Sonic Mojo” is exactly what FOGHAT will be bringing to their loyal legion of fans on November 10, 2023, in the form of their highly anticipated and long-awaited 17th studio album—their first in seven years–on the band’s label, Foghat Records, which is distributed by Select-O-Hits (part of the Sun Records family). It will be available as a single CD with 12-tracks and a six-page gatefold cover, as well as an 11-track, limited edition 180gram, purple neon vinyl. Digital pre-orders are now available (including CDs available on Amazon), while CD and vinyl (including autographed copies) and merchandise bundles are available for preorder.

On “Sonic Mojo,” founding member, drummer and leader of the pack Roger Earl is joined by stalwart guitarist, engineer, and co-producer Bryan Bassett (formerly with Wild Cherry and Molly Hatchet), fun-loving bassist Rodney O’Quinn (longtime member of the Pat Travers Band), and on lead vocals and guitar, Scott Holt (who toured and recorded with the legendary Buddy Guy for 10+ years).

The new album absolutely cements Foghat’s title as the undisputed Kings of Boogie Rock as it showcases the band’s trademark crunchy riffs, soaring slide guitar leads, infectious melodies, bluesy influences, and their take-no-prisoners approach to their loud, heavy, blues-rock that fans everywhere can’t get enough of.

The album’s recently released first single, “Drivin’ On,” was co-written by the late Kim Simmonds, Roger’s friend and former Savoy Brown band mate. In fact, three songs on “Sonic Mojo” have special meaning for Roger Earl, as they were co-written by Simmonds, the man who gave Roger his first break back in 1967 as a member of Savoy Brown. Sadly, shortly after writing these songs, Kim passed away in December 2022.

Formed in 1971, when Earl, lead vocalist/guitarist Lonesome Dave Peverett, and bassist Tony Stevens left the British blues-rock band, Savoy Brown, Foghat has earned eight Gold records, one Platinum record and one double-Platinum record.  They continue to release new music every few years, and are in constant motion on the road, maintaining a rigorous touring schedule that has been a staple of the band since its formation.

They sadly lost Lonesome Dave Peverett in 2000, founding lead guitarist Rod Price in 2005, and former bassist Craig MacGregor in 2018, but Roger Earl keeps banging and kicking to keep Foghat’s musical legacy going.

“I will rock until I drop,” is Roger’s favorite saying when it comes to Foghat and his life in general.
