Royalty Check Hotel
Hoehn sounds as if he sings and writes for his own pleasure above any other consideration. His is a folkie's voice adapting to a myriad of genres, and the overall combination works more times than not. Guitarist/producer John Inmon pulls it all together for an airy, concert-sounding disc. My thought is that Hoehn comes off better in a live setting than in a studio, but albums such as Royalty Check Hotel will prepare showgoers for some of the fun that should ensue.
