“When I first moved out west, I did not feel much culture shock, as they say,” soulful singer-songwriter Sean Hayes said in an interview with Xpress. But at the same time, “There is a certain sincerity toward music I feel the South has that informed me and still plays a big role. By sincerity, I mean a direct kind of experience between the player and the listener.”

Read the full story here. Hayes returned to The Grey Eagle last week, playing a transportive set. He was accompanied by drummer Eric Kuhn. In advance of that show, the musician spoke to Xpress and gave an exclusive performance of “Magic Slim vs. Dynamite.”
