If there were a map of Sean Hayes’ 20-plus career, it would be circuitous. A tangled crisscrossing of back roads and blue highways denoting place, influence, and trajectory. You can hear it in the deep-roots syncopation, in the dusty folk-stomp and in the biorhythmic pulse that ebbs and thumps throughout his soul-tinged songs.
For Hayes, it’s never been about the destination, it’s always been about the journey. Hayes forges songs that, even to the uninitiated, sound like hits. Listening to his songs on recording is one thing, but live is a whole different experience altogether – with his dynamic, yet laid-back stage presence intriguing listeners with every performance.
