Connolly Hayes Live
Live Sessions @ Ex Cellar Surbiton
Connolly - Hayes
Jess Hayes & Frankie Connolly
19th July from 7pm
Jess Hayes is a young blues-fuelled, soulful singer/songwriter with a powerhouse of a voice. She emerged onto the South London scene as a teenager having been raised on the classic sounds of Stevie Nicks, Bad Company, Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat etc etc by her musician parents, tagging along to their gigs every weekend and catching 'the bug'.
Jess quickly gained a reputation amongst the blues and soul cognesenti, as well as being the 'go to' singer of choice for (ex Mud member and noted songwriter, not least for Kylie's mega hit 'Can't Get You Out of My Head'), Rob Davies, with whom she has enjoyed a number of multi million streaming 'hits'. She has also recently enjoyed some prime time exposure on ITV's 'The Voice', turning all 4 chairs. More importantly though, Jess is looking to find her own 'voice' as a songwriter with this new project, with her friend Frankie Connolly, who himself has gaining a stellar reputation as both a great singer and astonishing guitar player, who has wowed crowds wherever he has played, including Ronnie Scotts and a number of festivals, internationally.
Richard Clarke, another noted vocalist/guitarist completes the very special 'trio' line up, especially for their visit to Ex Cellar.
