NMM SoundBytes: Doug Henthorn May Be “Forewarned” but He’s Surely Not “Failing”

Indianapolis’s answer to Tom Petty, Doug Henthorn is undoubtedly a heartbreaker. His sound is smothered in that same rootsy rock sauce that Petty and his crew may a hall of fame career out of of and is surely carrying the torch of rock and/or roll that you’d hear blaring at honky-tonks down South, in the Midwest, and beyond.

On his latest single, “Forewarned and Failing”, Doug croons over great riffs, rockin’ piano, and a rhythm section that won’t quit. The track will have fans of acts like rock supergroup Damn Yankees, British rockers with Americana influence Dire Straits, Southern rock royalty ZZ Top, and – of course – The Heartbreakers themselves eager for more, as the throwback sound of Henthorn and his band is familiar in all the best ways.

“Forewarned and Failing” is the lead single from Doug’s new album Three, an album that classic rock fans looking for something fresh yet comforting will flock to. Check out doughenthorn.com for more on the album, concert dates, and all things Doug Henthorn.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
