"Empire's strongest point is with their member's ability to have fun with their songs, providing a sincere amount of musicianship in order keep their songs serious while singing about drunken soldiers, bars and brothels. Confederates everywhere should be proud."
--Cory, Scene Point Blank
"Empire's tale is carved deep, hidden not just in the lyrics, but in the music itself. each chord radiates with a theme, and when all of these effects merge like creeks into rivers, the effect is inspiring."
--Travis Farren, A Visitor's Guide to Empire
"Hi Ho Six Shooter’s tales have the ability to transport the listener back in time. Empire is a captivating journey for the listener and it marks only the beginning for the band."
--Will SAL, Sound As Language
"Empire's tale is carved deep, hidden not just in the lyrics, but in the music itself. each chord radiates with a theme, and when all of these effects merge like creeks into rivers, the effect is inspiring."

Empire

Hi Ho, Six Shooter! was conceived one quiet summer evening in 2002 by Steven MacLauchlan, Patrick Stinnett and Jared “Shirtless” Brown in Patrick’s bedroom in Lynchburg, Va. The side project was meant as a way for these already busy musicians to express their repressed Southern tendencies through the majesty of an acoustic country sing-along.
The project later presented itself as a full-time opportunity. Steven and Patrick took the helm, enlisting the help of Justin Brown and Jeff Carey, to bring the group to their first full-length recording, titled Passing Through Just Like A Ghost. After some line-up changes and new member additions, the full-band version of HH6S then went from there, playing more shows and touring during breaks in their hectic school and work schedules. They have since put out a few small releases, including a civil war themed 7 inch and an EP titled A Brief Discourse on Death and Dying. Their upcoming full-length release, Empire, has found the Hi Ho boys exploring a darker and more developed sound that does not forget the fun-lovin’, whiskey-drinkin’, bar-fightin’ mentality that once defined their existence.
