Hayes plays from the heart, wherever that might take him. While there are blues hues to satiate longtime fans, Hayes' writing and sincere delivery straddle rock, funk, blues and more with a rootsy sort of charm that grows audiences.
John Luttrell, Full-time Blues Radio
You talk about the reputation this program has developed over the years as THEE program to hear tomorrow's legends today, with the quality of blues that this young man is playing, he is quickly establishing himself as one to watch. I predict there won't be a sophomore slump with this new CD.
Pat St. John, Host at Sirius/XM Ch 70

"I'm digging these tunes of yours! Everything I've heard from it is a winner. It's a smoker!"
Greg Johnson, Cascade Blues Association
Every year there seems to be at least one great guitar album that comes out and just slaps me full in the face and makes me take notice. This year it’s the Vincent Hayes Project. Reclamation just may be one of the most enjoyable albums I have heard all year long.
