Hank was born in Slaton, Texas and was barely out of high school when his mentor, Red Hayes, recommended him to Country star Faron Young as a replacement for Vassar Clements. Within a few months, Hank had played on his first #1 record - Faron Young's recording of "Four in the Morning." Hank has compiled an impressive list of credits with other top artists on stage and in the studio. He's become a first-call Nashville session player and sideman, touring and recording with Ray Price, Alan Jackson, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Gatlin Brothers, Ricky Van Shelton, Charley Pride, Randy Travis, Hank Williams, Jr., Tracy Lawrence, Roy Clark, Michael Martin Murphey, Suzy Bogguss, Gary Allan, Billy Bob Thornton, Tanya Tucker, Lee Ann Womack, George Jones, Miranda Lambert, and Brooks & Dunn. Back in his native Texas, no less an authority than Johnny Bush acknowledges Hank as the best honky-tonk fiddler of the day, in the tradition of greats like Johnny Gimble, Buddy Spicher, Andy Stein, and Vassar Clements.
"It's this simple, when it's time to call someone to come and play country fiddle on a song, Hank Singer is the man for the job. Hank's a musical genius. His playing is a portrait of touch, tone, taste and style. He is a descendant of the original fiddle masters such as Tommy Jackson and Red Hayes. Hank is the last man standing in Nashville with pure country fiddle in his heart." Marty Stuart
"Not only is Hank Singer One of the Masters when it comes to playing Traditional Music, he is just as talented and innovative when he is playing the Contemporary Music of today. Whether I am in a Recording Studio, or a Television Studio, or Live on Stage, Hank will always be my FIRST CHOICE"
Mike Johnson - Ace steel player and leader on Country Family Reunion shows on RFD TV. Credits: Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Reba McEntire, Willie Nelson...etc.
"Hank is the consummate fiddle player whether it's mournful blues, classic country or Texas swing, Hank has it all covered with the extra soul that is lacking in so much of what I hear today. Hank has a superbly warm tone that draws you in to compliment the best of singers. He tours and records with Lee Ann Womack, enough said. Did I mention he plays mandolin equally fine as well." - Chuck Ainlay - Producer/Engineer for George Strait, Dire Straits, Wynonna, Vince Gill, etc.
"Hank is a brilliant musician - wonderful tone, stellar human being. He can make you feel like you're drinking a sweaty long neck at a Texas honky-tonk fifty years ago on a Saturday night in June or he can fly you to the moon. I've been working with him for 20 years, the only reason I wouldn't be working with him in twenty more years would be if he stopped taking my calls.
Frank Liddell - producer for Lee Ann Womack, Miranda Lambert
"I first met Hank Singer around 1985 at a recording session in Nashville. I was so impressed with his playing back then, that I immediately started asking him to play on my demos, records, and shows when he was available. There's no better fiddle player than Hank, and I'm so proud to call him my friend."
Leona Williams - singer/songwriter recorded by Loretta Lynn, Connie Smith, Merle Haggard, etc.
"Hank Singer is a soulful, skilled musician and always a plus to any session. He's played on many, many of the recordings I've been involved with, and besides all that....he plays IN TUNE." - Kyle Lehning - producer for Randy Travis, Dan Seals, Ronnie Milsap and others.
"Hank is one of the most soulful players I know, and his musicianship on both fiddle and mandolin is outstanding. He always has great ideas, a big, beautiful sound, and wonderful intonation as well as note choices.
Glenn Worf - bass credits include Toby Keith, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Mark Knopfler, Miranda Lambert & more.....
"Hank Singer has been a fiddler hero, friend and mentor of mine for many, many years. He is undoubtedly one of the best fiddle players ever, and it's always a pleasure to hear him play. It just doesn't get any better! His contributions on recordings are immense and his caliber of playing will take any song to the next level. It's no wonder he's on so many major, Country hit records! Hank is in a very elite bracket of fiddle players, at the very top." - Bobby Flores - multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, arranger / producer / composer, Grammy Award Winner & Texas legend.
"When thinking of fiddle players the first one that comes to mind is HANK SINGER. He has been on most of my recordings such as STILL A LOT OF LOVE IN SAN ANTONE, I'LL BREAKOUT AGAIN TONIGHT, AND LILLY DALE, just to mention a few... I've known him since he was a pup. He had a wonderful teacher, BIG RED HAYES.. no wonder he's the best!!!!
