Artist Biography by

Alan Hayes is something of a home recording institution in Memphis, TN, a city with quite a reputation for letting the tapes roll and coming up with some darn good rock. His notably professional home studio setup has been used, for example, on the 1996 release by the Oblivians entitled The Sympathy Sessions -- which despite its great sound and superior garage rock seems mostly popular for its pictures of naked women.

Hayes' activities as a musician in his own right include playing keyboards in the Calculated X combo. The latter group, featuring frontman Bobby Bowie, got going on the Memphis rock scene in the early '80s. Bowie, who drowned in the summer of 2003, was also Hayes' bandmate in the more common-sounding Everyman.
