Wherever You Go
Hector Qirko is a guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter living in Knoxville, Tennessee. Raised in Latin America, he's played the blues clubs of Chicago with Lonnie Brooks, punk clubs in New York City with Balboa, backed up scores of country music greats on Nashville music television, and performed on the road all over the USA and beyond. These days he records and tours with singer-songwriter R.B. Morris, The Lonesome Coyotes, and his own eponymously named band of over two decades With 'Wherever You Go,' Qirko presents his first solo recording of original acoustic music. Featuring SGMA's Studio Musician of the Year David Johnson, Mark Fain of Ricky Skaggs' Kentucky Thunder, and fellow Lonesome Coyotes Steve Horton and Maggie Longmire, the music spans styles from blues to bluegrass, with fiddle waltzes, folk, gospel, and even a bit of Cuban son thrown in (and one Johnny Cash tune). Recorded by Danny Brown at Southern Sound Studios in Knoxville and designed by Amy Campbell in Maryville, it's what home sounds like to an adopted son of East Tennessee for now almost thirty years, and a home project in the best sense of the word.
