Tore Down House helps out a friend

A strong sense of justice guides Mark Huzar. It’s evident in the music he makes with Tore Down House, the band he formed in 2006 with friend and drummer John Michaud. One Huzar original, “American Farmer,” borrows a riff from the Allman Brothers’ “Every Hungry Woman.” However, the song’s refrain is not about love gone wrong, but about a world turned upside down. Pondering a family farm facing foreclosure, Huzar rails, “Mr. Banker, tell me ain’t you got no soul? Breaking my back in the hot sun trying to dig out of this hole.”

“I get so fed up with the world sometimes, that I have to say what I gotta say,” said Huzar in a recent phone interview. “People are getting thrown by the wayside, losing jobs — it’s terrible.”
