Compared to John Fogerty, John Prine and even Bob Dylan, Jeffrey Halford with his band, the Healers offer soulful blues-influenced rootsy rock-n-roll. Getting his start on the streets and small clubs in San Francisco, Halford's songs create a uniquely American, and specifically California, landscape. He's played with Taj Mahal, Los Lobos, Dave Alvin, and others — making a name for himself with poetic lyrics, a raw and haunting slide guitar and a band of master players.

"Halford is probably one of the finest slabs of roots rock and country fried blues you'll hear . . . Halford is the total package- an engaging singer with razor-sharp guitar chops who writes catchy songs loaded with storied lyrics-it's almost frightening how good this guy is." Bill Frost, Salt Lake City Weekly
