The Super 92
The Super 92’s music is a blend of roots and rock ‘n’ roll styling. “Roots and roll,” if you will. Six and twelve string electric guitars mix with a woody rhythm section and the occasional keyboard. Lyrics range from ballad to blues, often tinged with humour or a turn of phrase. Some of this material is informed by Robin’s experience as a professional archaeologist. A particular perspective on human behaviour is gained while digging up what we throw away. In 2010 he went to Mississippi to record tracks with Jimbo Mathus, creator of the Squirrel Nut Zippers and former rhythm guitarist for Buddy Guy. The result was the LP The Impossible Address, a record that one reviewer described as sounding “like Lou Reed fronting the Cars if they were a 60s roots rock band.”
The roots and roll juggernaut that is Robin Woywitka and the Super 92 were formed when Robin returned to Edmonton from recording The Impossible Address record. Cousins Craig Kowalchuk (guitar, lap steel, harmonica) and Greg Kolodychuk (bass) bring an inimitable feel that is bred in the bone. Along with drummer Alex Jumpsen’s sturdy and inventive beats, the Super 92 is the perfect medium for Woywitka’s compositions. The group released Roots & Roll in the fall of 2014. This record was recorded in Edmonton with Juno nominated producer Stew Kirkwood and Gavin Dunn of local heroes The Hearts.
S92 loves their audience, and believes that they have to earn your love and attention with every song. They are based out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
