Travis Hayes and the Young Daze

Video Premiere: Travis Hayes and the Young Daze - Towns Like These

We're excited to premiere the live music video for Travis Hayes' song, Towns Like These! The video features Hayes' full band, Travis Hayes and the Young Daze and the vocals of Emily Whitehurst.

Anyone who knows about Travis Hayes' contributions to the local music community would find his "Ode to the Bay Area" folk ballad, Towns Like These very consistent with his actions and passion for local live music. If you don't know anything about his work, Hayes has been a booker and live music curator for the local music venue, Neck of the Woods. He's also been great at connecting solo singer/songwriters with opportunities through booking and staying active in songwriter social media groups.

The video was filmed by Jared Swanson at our Great American Music Hall show last month on Saturday, June 27th. The audio was recorded by Seth Lael. The song "Towns Like These" is about traveling around the U.S.A. and constantly hearing people compare San Francisco to places like Austin, TX or Brooklyn, NY. I don't believe that to be true. There's no place like San Francisco. There's no place like home. - Travis Hayes

You can catch an upcoming live performance from Travis Hayes, The Painted Horses and The Wild Reeds on Thursday, August 6th at Leo's in Oakland!
