    Details

    Hayes Carll Hayes Carll is an odd mix. Wildly literate, utterly slackerly, impossibly romantic, absolutely a slave to the music, the 35-year old Texan is completely committed to the truth and unafraid to skewer pomposity, hypocrisy and small-minded thinking.In a world of shallow and shallower, where its all groove and gloss, that might seem a hopeless proposition. Last year, Another Like You, Carlls stereotypes attract duet of polar opposites, was American Songwriters #1 Song of 2011 and KMAG YOYO was the Americana Music Associations #1 Album, as well as making Best of Lists for Rolling Stone, SPIN and a New York Times Critics Choice.But more importantly than the critical acclaim is the way Carll connects with music lovers across genres lines. Playing rock clubs and honkytonks, Bonnaroo, Stones Fest, SXSW and NXNE, he and his band the Gulf Coast Orchestra merge a truculent singer/songwriter take that combines Ray Wylie Hubbands lean freewheeling squalor with Todd Sniders brazen Gen Y reality and a healthy dose of love amongst unhealthy people.I guess you could say I write degenerate love songs, Carll says. That, and songs about people whore wedged between not much and even less; people who see how hopeless it is and somehow make it work anyway. And the best kind of irony, sometimes, is applying no irony and letting reality do the work.Letting reality do the work has sure worked for the lanky Texan who walks slow and talks slower. Born in Houston, he went to college at Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas getting a degree in History, then heading back to Crystal Beach to play fora wild assortment of people either hiding out, hanging on or getting lost in the bars along Texas Gulf coast.Visit Hayes Carlls Website
