16 Horsepower

16 Horsepower were a Denver-based alternative country band that revolved around the unique songwriting and singing of David Eugene Edwards. The band made its name with music that combined rural backwoods kitsch with edgy, off-kilter country-rock. Teaming up with drummer Jean-Yves Tola and bassist Pascal Humbert in the band's original lineup, Edwards lost the latter member when the band relocated to Denver from California, adding Keven Soll to the roster instead. The group's eponymous debut EP was released in 1995 on A&M Records and was followed a year later by the Sackcloth 'n' Ashes full-length, which featured a cameo from Gordon Gano (Violent Femmes) on fiddle.

Although Soll eventually left the band, Humbert returned to the fold in 1997, along with new guitarist Jeffrey Paul Norlander. PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish was drafted to produce the band's newest effort, and Low Estate appeared in early 1998. Secret South arrived two years later and was followed by a well-deserved break from recording. Guitarist Steve Taylor had joined the lineup before this point, his arrival coinciding with Norlander's departure. The live document Hoarse, released in spring 2001, marked the band's first release for the new millennium. One year later, the original trio got back together with Taylor and began writing and recording Folklore, which was released that summer through the New York-based indie label Jet Set.

A year later, Jet Set issued Olden, which collected 12 previously unreleased demo/alternate versions of classic 16HP material; six live tracks culled from a 1994 date in Denver; and two band interviews. It was followed in January 2011 by Yours Truly, a 25-track retrospective that featured a collection of 12 "popular favorites," all of which were chosen by fans via an online survey, as well as a second disc that included 13 B-sides and rarities. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Bradley Torreano, Rovi

Great band
Long be the mile of the toil, the head holds heavy thoughts. Knees must buckle, bones must learn to bend or surely find me swept up in the corners under rug, or given in to drain... then to break "daN"
INTENSE , DEEP , MEANINGFULL AND TALENTED . SO IS WOVEN HAND. LOVE THIS STUFF !!
Powerful stuff here- Phyllis Ruth- WOW. Bummer I didn't know of them when they were together...
crispi03
Wovenhand is the evolution of 16 hp...
crazypete61
First time I have ever heard a Karma to Burn cover, well done
Consistently great Joy Division covers.
There was no mention of Wovenhand, which is Edwards current and ongoing project. He had produced about 4 albums with this name. The music is more worldly, taking celtic, native american and folk influences and blends them into a very beautiful, but haunting sound. Please check them out if you love 16 HP.

It was love at first sound long ago for me with these guys, but I'm a John Hartford fan from way back. The cool thing is that I discover all this other great music through my 16 Horsepower channel. Indeed, thank you Pandora.
Wow, I love this band!!
turleyknives
Best band in history!
sounds like the legendary gun club
fiendish_one
Turned on to them by DevilDriver' s cover of Black Soul Choir. amazing band, so glad to have found them.
yep!
never heard of them. blown away! need to get me some right quick.
Never heard these guys before. I likes. Thank you Pandora.
What !!!!!! Am I missing something here ? No mention of Bob Furbrache at all ? He has produced a handfull of albums and not to mention has recorded alot with 16hp in absinthe studios and not one name drop ,shout out, or anything ? Thats not right . If you all get the chance check out Bobs stuff and the work he does with a great band called slim cessna's auto club . He also has done work recording wovenhand as well.

Yes! Those Poor B**tards are ridiculous good. Saw them open up for Hank III in New Orleans. Very powerful, carnivalesqu e evil. Love it.
sing it DEE - Golden Rope off of the Low Estate album- the most intense thing i think i ever heard- saw this dude live and he was speaking in tongues- so intense and great
one of american's hidden treasures, (like the band X) and yes they do remind me of The Gun Club. however, this band stands on it's own incredible sound and song writing. eye have all their cds and they shall remain a staple in my extremely varied musical collection. i *love* pandora for turning people onto different artists that would otherwise escape our radar. have loved 16HP since sack cloth n ashes days. (and i'm an old punk rocker from the late 70's mind you!) no weak cd's by this band. hig
David Eugene Edwards and 16HP sound like the old punk band The Gun Club, in my opinion.Wiki p e d i a terms The Gun Club "tribal psychobilly blues" which sorta fits 16HP too!

Great stuff...

It really says something that all these folks who don't like country profess love for 16hp. I love classic and "alt" country, whatever you define that as. More bands like 16hp are what the genre needs, not worthless Nashville pop stars. Check out Those Poor B**tards as well for some similar sounds.
another Pandora find for me; i love this.
i'm like the rest of "y'all".. i grew up in hick-ville and always rebelled against anything country or red-neck -- but there's something about this band ... just can't get enough ...
azskidoc
ditto.... I NEVER thought I would be listening to anything "Country" or "fiddle related". I fricken Love this S****..... I've downloaded all their albums
bromide01
Yeah. I know what you mean.
soverignreap e r
Pretty goddamn good, coming from someone who hates anything relating to country.
OMG - I am speechless.. . THANK YOU PANDORA for showing me some awesome new music!! Sinnerman BLEW ME AWAY!!! <3 LOVE LOVE LOVE <3
mattspeck
Take a listen to O' Death
bromide01
I am only going to listen to this band from now on.
I will raise my PBR to theae guys anytime! They are just as depressing and cynical as I am. they put new words to things that I have thought. Damn good!!
ahomer
strawfoot, hayfoot, hayfoot straw. Clog, boy, clog.
Someone beat me to the comment. The song I heard could be Rusted Root.
fear a man with words like these
Sounds a lot like Rusted Root.
d e e's new project is also excellent: wovenhand. takes up where 16hp left off
i have seen 16 horsepower live-- being from denver area-and they have an amazing intensity go see them--buy the records and support your fave artists
For those of you who grew up listening to your dads cassettes and hated them then but love them now.....this band is for you.
