Jack Hayter

Dandelion Sessions

BarelyOut Recordings

Released: 18th August 2014 | 6 track urban folk ep

A collection of stripped back sessions for Dandelion Radio from Jack Hayter (Hefner/Dollboy).

Jack started out as a member of twisted country group Spongefinger, who the NME described asDennis Hopper's houseband before coming into promimence as a member of Hefner, Jack Hayter toured the world, playing festivals like Reading, Leeds, Big Chill, V Festival and shared bills with the likes of Flaming Lips, Sebadoh, Life Without Buildings, Elliot Smith, Billy Bragg and more. Hefner also enjoyed a number of charting singles and albums through the Too Pure label and recorded several Peel Sessions and a Maida Vale session for Steve Lamacq at the BBC also.

As well as contributing his trademark Pedal Steel Guitar to countless records (Silver Ginger 5, Darren Hayman, Tram, Mark Mulcahy, TV Smith, Benjamin Shaw, Mark Fry and more), Jack issued his debut LP on US label Absolutely Kosher and shared bills with KT Tunstall, Martin Grech, Wreckless Eric and Mountain Goats.

His recent output on the Audio Antihero label found great acclaim from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, This Fake DIY, The 405 and more, including BBC 6 Music support from Tom Ravenscroft and Tom Robinson.

"Hayter has one of the weariest, most world-beaten voices around...Hefner's just holding you back, Jack."
"It's the twisted chimera, the wobbles and vibrations that give (Hayter) the kudos, the imagination to break from the usually tough (and boring/overdone/tiresome) grasps of folk."
The Line of Best Fit
"Welcome back Mr Hayter - 8/10"
The 405
"Please Mr Hayter, please, please, break your heart some more for us, you loveable, fantastic, exquisite balladeer - 5/5."
"Jack Hayter, of the band Hefner, has a voice like silk, old torn silk that's stinking and slightly rotten."
Impact Press
"Very nice."
Tom Ravenscroft, BBC 6 Music
"Sounds like Tom Waits and his mates running amok in a second-hand music shop."
Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
