Hadden Sayers Band
Hadden Sayers was born in Nacogdoches, TX and was raised in Sugar Land. He began playing guitar as a teenager and was immersed in live music while a student at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. Studying took a back seat to all-night jam sessions and performances by Blues and Texas Music legends Gatemouth Brown, Joe Ely, Omar and the Howlers, Eric Johnson and other musicians of different genres. In fact, Sayers once spent an afternoon driving Punk legends "The Ramones" around in his car in search of a proper plate of barbeque! After earning a degree in Journalism Sayers moved to Austin, TX where he began his "blues internship" with legendary BB King rhythm section "Silent Partners". Shortly thereafter he joined Bluesman Lucky Peterson's touring band and spent time learning the finer points of keeping a juke joint band on the road. After his stint with Lucky Peterson, Sayers returned to Houston, TX to concentrate on writing songs. It was there he began a 3 year association with regional sensation Miss Molly and the Whips making his recording and songwriting debut on her first 2 releases: "Miss Molly" (EFM 1992) and "In the Garden" (EFM 1993). Sayers began work on his own album in late 1993 and the Hadden Sayers Band was born...touring the globe and going on to create 4 more albums of searing blues-rock. In 2004 Sayers moved to Columbus, Ohio to re-invent and re-invigorate his musical touring machine. After a two-year hiatus from relentless touring. Sayers has returned to the studio and stage with an armload of new songs that decidedly more 'Texas' than the material he wrote while living in the state. 'It's a classic case of absence making the heart grow fonder.' 'The material I'm writing today is directly linked to the dancehalls and stages I frequented in my first groups.....blurring the line between Country, Rock and Blues'.
