Jim Hayes is inspired primarily by musical outlaws such as Jim Morrison, Bob Marley, R.L. Burnside, The Black Keys. There seems to be a mission in their music: kill conformity in the name of love and sanity. It’s all rooted in the raw heart of blues rock. Unrefined yet rich with melody, this band was formed in New Jersey, but it’s sound comes from the dark history of Mississippi – the birthplace of whiskey blues. This trio is deeply devoted to keeping the original and sometimes radical spirit of blues and rock.
With Tom Parsells on the bass and Bill Van Goor on drums, Jim Hayes is well supported by their gut-felt performance.
