Hadden Sayers: Acoustic Dopamine + Dopamine Machine

To find out out if a guitar player can really play, hand him an acoustic. Blues musician Hadden Sayers did so for Acoustic Dopamine, the companion release for the electric Dopamine Machine. This double whammy is a 101 for budding guitarists who want to explore to the blues in its two guises. Now based in Columbus, OH there is still plenty of the Texas style in his playing: swagger galore topped off by his gravelly voice that can turn into a surprise falsetto to make it funky.

Sayers leads his band two albums worth of good time music. He can turn on the charm (Good Good Girl), write a power ballad that doesn't suck (Gravity), rock hard and mean (Unsatisfied) and add to the canon of great road trip songs (Blood Red Corvette and Hit The Road). Both albums contain the same songs, albeit in a different running order.

Acoustic Dopamine and Dopamine Machine are self-released albums. Buy Acoustic Dopamine and Dopamine Machine from his website.
