Get ready for another bulletproof European tour full of Gospel, Folk, Soul, and Blues music… Yep, some people call his music Americana, Jeffrey Halford and The Healers call it rock ‘n’ roll country soul with a different shade of blue.
To support their sixth European tour Halford and The Healers release on April 21st, 2023 the single Mississippi Flyer. When Bill Wyman, formerly of the Rolling Stones asked Jeffrey Halford to do his song, Mississippi Flyer, Halford replied: “It would be an honor”. They cut the song live and took it musically from California, down to the Mississippi Delta, and ended up in Muscle Shoals. This all resulted in lots of new online fans, streams, and views on all steaming media platforms.
Jeffrey Halford, born in Dallas, migrated to Los Angeles (in the late 60s and 70s) and then stewed in the blues and rock n’ roll in Oakland and San Francisco. Jeffrey Halford and The Healers have played live relentlessly, sharing stages with Etta James, Taj Mahal, Jimmy Cliff, Los Lobos, Guy Clark, John Hammond, and Gregg Allman, just to name a few.
Jeffrey Halford and The Healers sense of reckless musical abandon has been further honed on this European tour with bassist Mike Anderson (Big Blue Hearts, Eric McFadden) and of course, multi-instrumentalist Adam Rossi. Hard to believe for some who never saw this trio kick-ass live on stage. The sophisticated line-up of Jeffrey Halford and the Healers sounds like a mature 5-piece band. This well-oiled machine runs like a diesel engine and is exactly what keeps people coming back to Halford’s live performances repeatedly. Go and experience this trio when they are in your area…
