As lead guitarist and vocalist of the legendary rock band, The Moody Blues, Hayward is one of the most prolific singer-songwriters in music. Justin’s songs include “Nights In White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon,” “Question,” “The Voice,” “Your Wildest Dreams,” and “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere,” to name just a few of his worldwide hits. Performing and recording for more than 40 years with The Moody Blues, during which the group has sold more than 60 million albums, Justin Hayward has been a driving force in the band’s success.
Spirits Of The Western Sky, recorded in Genoa, Italy and Nashville, is Hayward’s first solo album since 1996’s The View From The Hill. It features his trademark vocals and guitar work on tracks such as “One Day, Someday,” “On The Road To Love,” & album opener “In Your Blue Eyes,” and also highlights orchestrations by Academy Award-winning composer Anne Dudley. Additionally, Hayward moves into new areas with the three country and bluegrass-influenced tracks “What You Resist Persists,” “Broken Dream,” and “It’s Cold Outside Of Your Heart.”
For the last decade, Williams has been quietly and urgently building a following and a career the old-fashioned way, song-by-song, album-by-album. First there was Uphill/Downhill. Then, Another Sailor’s Dream, followed by the breakthrough Cotton Bell. Mapping the trajectory from one to the next, the thing that remains is Williams’ graceful, resigned tone and timeless songwriting, and how he uses both to disguise the profound in the simple.
