Their love for early rock ’n’ roll, true country, raw blues and pretty much any kind of authentic American music branded them quickly as anomalous — and electrifying. Since that time they’ve barnstormed far beyond their Boston hometown, playing honky-tonks, beer joints and more recently concert venues throughout the U.S. They’ve amassed a loyal legion of fans along the way. The media have noticed too, including Rolling Stone, which heralds them as a “modern-day Buddy Holly plus Dwight Yoakam divided by the Mavericks.”
Ward Hayden and The Outliers are a musical force to be reckoned with. From heart wrenching ballads, to foot-stompin rock and roll, Ward Hayden and the Outliers deliver every time.
Through their harnessed sound of cupboards left ransacked and warm beer on the table, Modern Fools delivers an original blend of indie-rock on the rocks, blues, country-fried soul and a sincere work ethic. With harmony-driven earnest howls and deliberate swells, they capture the egresses of love and tiresome gambles on the American frontier. Formed from the soils of the Northeast, Modern Fools have tapped their circuits to hot-wire their sound.
