Siblings, David Bingaman and Jennie Hayes Kurtz, grew up in Dallas, Texas listening to Feetwood Mac, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Patsy Cline.
They both fell in love with the art of songwriting while attending the University of Arkansas and began writing songs together. After college, they performed original music and bluegrass covers as The Bingamans. In 2016, they graduated from an acoustic duo to a fully formed Americana rock band, and Brother and The Hayes was born. The band combines thoughtful lyrics with infectious grooves. They are taking country roots music in a new direction, while paying homage to artists like Lightnin' Hopkins, Emmylou Harris, and Guy Clark.
“The result is pure fusion: it’s Creedence Clearwater Revival meets Steve Earle with a touch of Bob Wills. It’s a Texas-influenced burrito, stuffed with goodness as organic as the place where it comes from.”
