Jeffrey Halford and the Healers, Broken Chord

San Francisco-based singer/songwriter/guitar slinger/poet Jeffrey Halford marks his sixth release with this follow-up to the critically acclaimed CD, Railbirds. As a master purveyor of rootsy, bluesy rock with a pop sensibility, Halford and his band, The Healers (featuring Augie Meyers), obliterate the American canvas with tunes that shake the rafters, raise your consciousness, and sanctify your soul. Halford’s is a uniquely American voice, authentic and timeless. These songs transcend the mundane and wade into America’s past, present and future. From a Texas jail to a Las Vegas wedding, then traversing the darker depths of Louisiana’s Ninth Ward, these idiosyncratic songs combine to create a distinctly original vision. Bruce Kaphan, longtime guitarist and producer of American Music Club, co-produced the album with Halford. Jeffrey also brought in the legendary Texas Music Hall of Famer Augie Meyers on keyboard, as well as Louisiana’s own Kirk “Jellyroll” Johnson on harmonica to assure that grooves would be raucous and greasy. “ Among the outstanding and essential voices in Americana today.” L.A Weekly “ This is great rootsy rock music, raw and foreboding. His poetry transcends run-of-the-mill lyrics.” No Depression “ Halford’s storytelling talent is obvious. Hemingway armed with a bluesy guitar.” Dirty Linen
