John Oates is best known as half of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame duo, Hall & Oates, but he has had an accomplished solo career since 1999 that includes eight solo albums. His latest, the critically acclaimed Arkansas and the EP, John Oates with The Good Road Band, were both released last year. Arkansas originally began as a tribute to John’s idol, Mississippi John Hurt. During a series of Nashville recording sessions, it evolved organically to become a unique collection drawing from a wide range of John’s musical influences.
“It’s like Dixieland, dipped in bluegrass and salted with Delta blues,” John said about the project.
Recorded at Addiction Studios in Nashville, the album was produced by John and David Kalmusky. John teamed with an amazing group of accomplished and rising stars in the Americana music world, The Good Road Band. The impressive lineup on the record consists of Sam Bush on mandolin, Russ Pahl on pedal steel, Guthrie Trapp on electric guitar, Steve Mackey on bass, Nathaniel Smith on cello, and Josh Day on drums and percussion. With this incredible band, John shines a light on music from America’s past long before the birth of rock ‘n’ roll.
John co-wrote many of Hall & Oates greatest hits with Daryl Hall. They started performing together in the early 1970s, and recorded 21 albums that have sold more than 80 million copies, making them the most successful duo in rock history. They have 10 number one records to their credit and more than 20 Top 40 hits, including “Sara Smile,” “She’s Gone,” “Out of Touch,” “Maneater” and “I Can’t Go for That.”
