Jason Haywood, A Thousand Miles Since Yesterday

Jason Haywood’s debut album is dedicated to Gene Clark. I have to admit that the name didn’t register with me, but a quick Google search revealed a treasure cove of material to get into. So, thank you for that Jason!  A Thousand Miles Since Yesterday is quite defiant, taking country music back to it’s simplistic – but no less powerful – roots of honky-tonk, folk and fusing it with some country soul. Like his influences, Haywood pulls out common country themes of heartbreak, hope and redemption – it sometimes get to a point where some of the songs sound the same – but his calm and soulful voice pushes away those negative thoughts and you just lose yourself in the moment. A Thousand Miles is merely reinventing the wheel, but it does gets better with repeated listens. (Independent) ~3 Stars
