This is a song I want to hearReally nice. I have not been greatly enthused by much of what I have heard on N1M, but I really like your song. Professional production sounds, good lyrics, good melody. I actually listened to the entire song! That is high praise coming from me. I am a tough critic, and I have skipped many song reviews because I do not want to write a harsh review (even if it deserves it). You should know I enjoyed listening to your song very much. I think it is in more of a country genre, which is not what I usually listen to, but like I said, I listened to this entire song. Honestly, that is a first for me doing the few reviews I have done. Best of luck to you, and I hope you find success as singer-songwriter, performer, rockstar, or whatever you hope to be. Keep up the good work.
ANOTHER GREAT SONGGROWING UP IN AND AROUND A SITUATION THAT INVOLVES LIFE'S HARD AND DANGEROUS TIMES OF A MUSIC LIFE AND ARTIST, SOME HAVE IT SOME DO NOT. JEFF HAS IT AND CONTINUES TO PROVE HIMSELF AS A SELF WRITTEN POET OF SONG WRIT-TING AND LEAD MAN SINGER AND GUITAR SLINGER IN HIS OWN RIGHT. HIS MUSIC ENCAPSULATES IT'S OWN MOVEMENT OF STYLE. PALY ON MY FRIEND AND TRIP THE LIFE FANDANGO MR HAYFORD. JEFFRO LANHAM
"Hear Him Sing"Wow, what a cool tune, very heartwarming! Excellent job, i would go to a concert of you, if i had the chance to. Please keep up that awesome work and go your way, you will make it, i'm sure. Stay as strong as you are and you will reach your goals. Send this awesome records to all radio stations, they should play it on heavy rotation! Wish you all the best and as many listeners as possible. You really have deserved that. Btw you're the first person, which song i rated with 5/5 stars!
This is a really good song!I really liked this a lot! Great lyrics, great production, great structure, and great vocals! I don't know if Jeff is trying to be country or contemporary rock, but this song could fall into either category. This is a breath of fresh air as compared to most main stream music today. Jeff Hayford is a good song writer and deserving of a record deal, if some record company doesn't sign this guy, then they're stupid...The music world is in dire need of good song writers and hearing this song by Jeff Hayford has me believing that they still exist!
great songclassic sound with great melody and feeling. Highly recommended to listen anytime and feel back to the good times of good music. Jeff uses all the classic rock elements with elegance and mastery, sounds nostalgic and powerful at the same time, and becomes pleasing to the listener. Good luck and sucess.
Hear Him SingVery nice song Jeff. It's easy going with a great beat. I like this song allot. I think it gets me thinking about country living and not having a care in the world. Reminds me of a simpler time when I was a country boy.
good feel folk bluesGreat rock n roll blues song. Got a slight country feel to it but more like old country and not the newer generic stuff. A lot of soul present too, the way good blues should always be. I really like this song, listened multiple times and it's just simply, good, honesest, meanifull, well written and played, RnR blues.
Hear Him Sing "Jeff Hayford "What a pleasant thing to turn on the puter this morning and discover a nice song by a very talented performer and song writer. Jeff has a nice rambling storytelling style good lyrics and some very nice guitar work on this recording. Kind of brings back to mind that old song about Hank Williams "Midnight in Montgomery", actually thought for a minute it was going in that direction, but it took a bit of a different twist and told a bit about John Hiatt. Wishing you great success with this tune and others Jeff. Tom Wiggins and da boys in da band.
Good to hear him sing indeedThis just the kind of music I really like. Gentle on the ear but with a lovely back beat going on and sounding so good with this singers voice. Very well put together and a great performance.
Nice!Very nice song! What a great melody written up for this song, and love that title you have put up, it definitely carries the meaning behind the song. This is the pure definition of music my friend :)
Listening carefullyJeff Hayford brings us Hear Him Sing... an old school ballad that in a very eery way sounds a lot like the late Jim Croce and I don't mean in just the tone of the song but the arrangement as well as the vocal quality including the back up vocals. It even sounds like it was mastered in the style of the 1970's music. From the recording and mixing standpoint I can't really find anything wrong with the way it was done.... except maybe the vocals could have had a touch more reverb... but really that is about it.... well done!
Nicely doneWas surely nicely surprised with how calm and well balanced tune is. While may not be standing out by many of what could be regularly heard it has it it own flavor which I consider hardest to get, so great work!!!!!
Really ought to "Hear him sing"Jeff has written a good old fashion Singer/Songwriter tune. The recording is very clean and the instrumentation is beautiful. The song builds throughout as it should. Starts off as something that would be at home on a Peter Wolf album. I wish more people would take the time to craft songs like these as opposed to relying on pre-built beats and loops. I can see myself hearing this song in my car driving down the road. You really ought to hear Jeff Sing. Well done Jeff!
The good stuffGentle melody beautifully crafted taking you on a journey like reading the pages of a book, this song has a lot of heart. I could easily kick back and take that long road to Memphis. Great work
Solid AmericanaObvious influences from the great Americana artists that affect everyone in the genre, including a direct reference to John Hiatt (who also appears to be one of the main influences), this song has all the elements that firmly entrench it in the Heartland of America. There's the simple chord progression with no surprises, the rhythmic acoustic guitar groove that could carry the song by itself, the tight interlock of the drums and bass guitar in their positions of doing just was is needed, no more, no less), the working man's Fender strat lead with just a touch of effects, clean lyrics from a clean singer laying off of the tension and semi-sparse background vocals. For those who lean towards American, this is the ticket...a well-done effort.
