Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Presents Hadden Sayers Saturday, January 19, 2012 at 8 pm at the Orpheum Theater Center.
Texas blues Troubadour Hadden Sayers has performed with many others including: Kenny Neal, The Neville Brothers, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Susan Tedeschi, Double Trouble, Ian Moore, Marcia Ball, The Doobie Bros., Los Lobos, Bryan Adams and many more.
In 2004, Sayers was a successful musician in Houston. He had a powerful agent and record label executives jostled for space at his gigs. His calendar was full of shows and his albums got attention. After a couple of bad business deals, Sayers plowed on. He released his own records independently and lugged a battered '57 Strat all over the world as he performed 200 shows independently in 2005.
Grammy-nominated vocalist Ruthie Foster called In Search Of a guitarist in 2006 and Sayers was hired for the job. Their duet Back to the Blues became the cornerstone of Sayers' album Hard Dollar, which earned a 2012 Blues Music Awards Nomination for Song of the Year.
Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top quips, "Hadden's pretty much my hero." If a man can live a heroic life with a guitar in his hand, then Hadden Sayers is an exemplary blues warrior with his hard but tender and righteous music. He has done things the right way, not the easy way.
