If you were to ask the John D. Hale Band to classify their sound, they’d respond by simply saying “its country.” Charming as this response is, it has the potential to be misleading. Blending together their favorite parts of country, Americana, southern rock, and even bluegrass, the John D. Hale Band have crafted their own edgy and raucous sound.
John D. and the boys began playing in earnest in 2005 in support of their debut album, “One of a Kind” and the record enjoyed widespread radio play domestically as well as in Europe and Australia. The record climbed to 17 on XM Radio’s X-Country channel year end top 50 chart in 2006. Their sophomore effort, Lost, was released in 2008 quickly topping X-Country’s charts and remained a Top Ten favorite for most of the summer in 2008. JDHB also broke into the Texas Country Music charts with their single, “Heartbreaker”. The most recent album, “More Than I can Handle was released in late 2012 and enjoyed wide spread popularity on the Texas Country Music Charts reaching #40.
The John D. Hale Band sets up shop on the family ranch in their hometown of Jackson, Missouri, a true testament to the rural approach, sound, and subject matter of the songs they play. The quintet made up of John D. Hale (vocals, guitar), Chris Brotherton (drums, vocals), Scott McCumber (steel guitar), Bud Whitledge (bass) and Mason Watkins (Lead Guitar) put on a live show that is an energetic and rowdy showcase of great, American music.
