Bill Hayes

 

 

Bass player, Bill Hayes, is also a best-selling

author and a long-time martial arts instructor

in the beach area of Los Angeles. He began

his musical trip in the “groovy” days of the

mid-1960s—some of which he actually still

remembers!

 

         Debbie Goodman

 

 

With a couple of hard life experiences behind

her, and a head full of songs ready to tell about

it, Debbie Goodman packed up a U-Haul and

headed to Los Angeles with her guitar and her

percussionist.  She left behind a budding 

country career in Nashville to pursue pop and

rock in more progressive California.  In the

song Beautiful Girl - which you can hear at

every major grocery store in the US right now.

Debbie Goodman sings about finding acceptance 

with the untimely loss of her sister, and fans say,

"That's exactly how I feel", and Debbie later said

the same when she heard pop star Grace Potter

sing her song "Stars".  Debbie's rock and country

crossover tunes and that undeniable twang in her

voice reveals an Oklahoma City upbringing with a

nice mix of Tennessee.  Other influences include 

Led Zepplin, who she loves covering with Debbie

and the GoodMan Band, and she looks up to country

star Miranda Lambert for her rebellious feistiness. 

From East Coast to West Coast and right in the

middle, Debbie Goodman has touched the nation

with songs that come straight from her own real life.
