What people are saying....
Every once in a great while, a recording comes along that shakes up a genre, begs to be trumpeted to the world, and perks up the ears of normally aloof, dispassionate music critics. Account to Me is just such an album, a lovingly crafted, sonically ingenious tribute to legendary blues harmonica player Gary Primich, a friend and musical inspiration to Grand Rapids’ own Hank Mowery. A singer and harp virtuoso, Primich (who was raised in Indiana) left the world way too soon. He also left behind a treasure trove of heartfelt music and some unfinished songs that Mowery – at the request of Primich’s family – completed as part of this brilliant collection of Primich originals, favorite blues covers and Mowery originals. The vintage, analog touch of Grand Rapids’ Goon Lagoon studio gives the project an authentic, retro sheen that perfectly showcases Mowery’s singing and tasteful harmonica explorations, not to mention the masterful musicianship of his Hawktones bandmates and guest guitarist Jimmie Stagger.
- REVUE MAGAZINE (JULY 2013)
"All throughout the disc, Mowery proves that while he may have been a student of Gary's once upon a time, he is now his own man, and he is a dangerous player. Let it be said, Hank Mowery can play harp with the best of them."

DELMARK RECORDING ARTIST
Vintage, rare, unvarnished, heartfelt.
Amid the digital age’s barrage of over-hyped, copycat-obsessed music, unearthing something, anything, truly original that stands out from the pack is a needle-in-the-haystack proposition. Until now.
For blues harp whiz Mowery, whose new “Account to Me” album on Old Pal Records is a brilliant tribute to the late and legendary Gary Primich, Along with powerful Mowery originals, the resulting 10 tracks ooze with authenticity and honor Primich in a way that only a loving pal could manage.
