Rock & Pop

Hunter Hayes/Jackie Popavec

When: Fri., April 21, 7 p.m. 2017

When most kids were still figuring out how to crawl, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist had already embarked on the path that would lead to a successful musical career. His grandmother gave him a toy accordion when he was only 2 and by 4, he had begun making appearances on local and national TV shows. He performed "Jambalaya (On the Bayou)" with Hank Williams Jr. on the Nickelodeon game show Figure It Out. At age 7, he was invited to perform for President Bill Clinton for a White House lawn party. After signing to Atlantic Records, Hayes issued self-titled debut in 2011 and then followed it in 2014 with Storylines. In 2015, he issued The 21 Project, an album divided into three sections. Each song is available as a studio recording, an acoustic recording and a live performance from his Wheels Up Tour. By isolating himself at a studio where he can work 24-7, Hayes has focused on crafting new tunes and “starting from scratch.” Hayes plans to play some of those new tunes when he performs at House of Blues tonight.
