Halford’s special guest is Victor Krummenacher from seminal rock band, Camper Van Beethoven.

 

“This album is greasy organic with tube amplifier screaming under a low hum shag carpet, with the walls shakin’ behind the words falling down the plaster,” states Halford.

 

Jeffrey Halford is one of the premier purveyors of rootsy, bluesy rock ‘n roll (Americana), with a pop sensibility. RAINMAKER is Halford’s seventh release and is the follow-up to 2008’s critically- acclaimed Broken Chord that climbed to #7 on the Americana charts in the USA and Europe. On RAINMAKER Jeffrey demonstrates that both he and the band have aged like a fine Northern California wine. The recording showcases the best of Halford’s songwriting and his distinctive guitar, complimented by the crafted rumble of his band.

 

Long admired as a singer-songwriter-guitarist, Jeffrey Halford shows a new sensitivity on RAINMAKER. There are multi-dimensional character sketches and storytelling revealing the deep urgency of love, heretofore a new territory for Halford. With songwriting that nods as much towards Sam Shephard and Jack Kerouac as it does to the usual songwriting gods, RAINMAKER captures the multi-faceted soul of America past, present, and maybe future as well. This album is a redemptive journey that just happens to be a collection of songs.

 

RAINMAKER is complemented by an array of notable guest artists, including Bruce Kaphan (Talking Heads, Sheryl Crow, Black Crowes) on guitar and steel, who also co-produced the album. There’s a gospel infusion via Pam Delgado and Jeri Jones (Blame Sally), plus noted drummer Trey Sabatelli (Jefferson Starship, The Tubes, Todd Rundgren), and Tom Heyman (Alejandro Escovedo) on guitar.

 

 

 

“This is great rootsy rock music. Halford’s slide playing is raucous, raw and foreboding. His poetry transcends the run-of-the-mill lyrics.”                            

NO DEPRESSION

 

“…Halford’s storytelling talents are obvious, almost a Hemingway armed with a blues guitar.”
