David Hayes / Press

“ David Hayes Out with the New Review by G. W. Hill This second disc from Hayes is great. I really enjoyed the first one, but this seems to have a more cohesive and consistent texture. It feels more mature. Considering the strength of the first disc, and the level of improvement between the two, I really look forward to see where Hayes goes next. However, looking at just this set as the present, it’s a great disc. I’d certainly recommend it to just about anyone. While it’s progressive rock in many ways, it’s also very accessible and quite tasty. ”

“David Hayes Live in Rockford, Illinois, January, 2011 Review by Gary Hill One part progressive rock band, one part power trio, one part jam band and one part guitar hero – all fun, entertaining and powerful, David Hayes and his cohorts put on a killer show that covered all kinds of musical territory, but never failed to gel. The hour they spent on stage was packed with killer sounds. They played several songs from Hayes’ recent album, but also a number of new tunes. In addition they covered Led Zeppelin. You have to love it when someone covers Led Zeppelin and does it well. You have to like it even more when it’s not one of the more obvious pieces, but rather a deep cut like “Over the Hills and Far Away.” They also closed the set with a Van Halen two-fer of “Eruption”/”You Really Got Me.” If you get the chance to see Hayes, don’t pass it up. His album is great, but the live show is even better. ”

“Progressive Rock CD Reviews David Hayes In with the Old David Hayes is a musician from Chicago and this is his debut disc. It features considerable variety and a lot of musical maturity for a first outing. The music, for the most part, fits along the lines of progressive rock, although none of the tracks qualify in terms of being epic in length. This should appeal to progressive rock fans, but also might be of interest to those more interested in classic rock. Overall, it’s an excellent disc that showcases a musician and songwriter with a lot of talent. Hayes is going to be releasing a follow up in the near future and I, for one, am interested in hearing what he does with that one. ”
