The first thing you should know about the music of Hip Hatchet is that every word in every sentence holds extreme weight if the listener is willing to fully invest. He's a master poet, storyteller, and his vocal emotion proves that the medium of music can elevate the universal unknown to individual understanding.
WLFY is extremely honored to premiere the newest offering from Hip Hatchet, "David's Wolves" from his upcoming LP, Hold You Like A Harness. It's a dark and powerful song that puts all the pressure on these snarling vocals that can transition from beauty to anger on a dime. Unlike a lot of artists who simply propose questions to themes, Hip Hatchet shows his talent to be both personally exposed by the struggle of large life conflicts and at the same time humbly offer up his solutions. Hip Hatchet tells the story of everyone, filtered through one brilliant mind...a beginning, middle, and end...questions and answers...a quest for truth and the calming sanity through song that washes over the stressful thoughts we all hold.
