Sean Hayes



Sean Hayes plays Appalachian Ambient Folk music like an Irish rooster channeling Nick Drake... "All night til sunrise music". Born on August 27, 1969 in New York City, a few years later Hayes' family moved to North Carolina. Sean Hayes began playing traditional American and Irish music with a band called the Boys of Bluehill. He traveled the south, from the Black Mountain Music festival (LEAF Festival) in the Blueridge Mountains down to Charleston, South Carolina.

Sean Hayes has lived in San Francisco since 1992, he has released four independent records, appeared on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic, and WFUV's Whole Wide World with Rita Houston, is a frequent guest of the acclaimed Los Angeles Largo (nightclub) and has played with many fine musicians such as Jolie Holland, Ara Anderson, Etienne de Rocher, Todd Roper and Ches Smith. Hayes' Rattlesnake Charm has been re-mixed by Mark Farina and Stephane Pompougnac on Hôtel Costes, Vol. 8.
