Led by Vincent Hayes on vocals and guitar, and fueled by one of the tightest rhythm sections in modern blues, the Vincent Hayes Project has recently been receiving world wide critical acclaim for their debut CD release of original inspired blues titled, “Reclamation”.
Nominated by The Blues Foundation in Memphis, TN for a prestigious 2011 Blues Music Award for “Best New Artist Debut”, as well as the recipient of three 2011 WYCE Jammie Awards (Best Album, Best Blues Album, Best Group), the West Michigan based ensemble released “Reclamation” in the spring of 2010 on Haye’s own independent label, North 61 Records. By late May the disc had been added to regular rotation on a growing list of over 200 radio stations in ten different countries, including the nationally syndicated program “Blues Deluxe”. In June, “Reclamation” made its own debut on the National Living Blues Top 25 Radio Chart, where it spent two consecutive months during the summer of 2010, and also made the national Roots Radio Chart where it remained on the chart for most of the summer.
Vincent recently appeared on the cover of the March 2012 issue of Blues & Co., France’s most read blues publication, including a full interview. The group has been busy at work in the studio again with producer/engineer Glenn Brown (Kid Rock, Eminem) at Glenn Brown Productions in East Lansing and are planning to release a new disc in late summer.
