(REDWOOD CITY, CA) " Acclaimed Americana ‘n' Blues, singer/songwriter/guitarist Jeffrey Halford & The Healers has been called “the West Coast's Answer to Bruce Springsteen" for his songs about the conditions of the everyday man and woman in America. Among his most memorable: “Cry of Hope," about Americans' need to keep faith in America; and “Louisiana Man," about the 2005 Hurricane Katrina disaster and our government's slow response to it. As validation of Halford's writing prowess, the Bay Area-based musician just won “2009 Songwriter of the Year" at the recent 5th Annual South Bay Music Awards.
Jeffrey Halford and the Healers perform along with Roy Rogers & the Delta Rhythm Kings at the Little Fox Theater, 2215 Broadway, Redwood City, Saturday, June 13, 8 p.m., $10. Info: (650) 369-4119 or log onto www.foxdream.com.
Halford's song “Watching the Trains" is included as part of “ROCKIN ROOTS Singing 12-Pack," recently released by Lyon, Colorado-based Oskars Brews. The CD is included with the purchase of a 12-pack of Oskars, the only micro-brewed beer sold in cans in the U.S. His most recent CD, BROKEN CHORD, reached #8 on the national Americana charts.
