After great recognition touring throughout the US, Europe, UK and of course in Ireland they are renowned for their high energy live performances and remain authentically true to a unique combination of music styles described by Chez Draper (Austin Producer) as REDHOT ROOTS-A-BILLY" incorporating "Rockabilly, Country Boogie with a touch of slap back Blue-grassy feel at its best . The natural feel, and tone in Joe s voice once referred to by "James Burton" as "honestly distinctive" is backed by the seriously talented line-up of the "dawg-house big bass, pickin' guitar, swinging rhythm skins and that slidin' pedal steel, along with some wailin harp".

Joe fury & the hayride are defiantly becoming very popular on the festival scene throughout Ireland from the Kilkenny Rhythm and Roots, Electric Picnic and are due to play two gigs at the Cork Jazz Festival 29th October

Hey! Hey! Hey! is the debut album from Joe Fury and the Hayride. It captures Joe s powerful vocals and the bands unique Rootsabilly sound and hits the sweet spot where the roots of country music and blues meet. Tracks include the swinging Shotgun Boogie, bluegrass murder ballad Little Sadie, a Rockabilly take on the Steve Earle tune Graveyard Shift and the swampy/New Orleans feel of original song Miss Lizzy.

"Anyone who claims not to like rockabilly can't be fully right; when it's done with great skill it sounds simple, melodic, and beautiful, it makes you smile and want to move, that's exactly what Joe Fury & The Hayride's album, 'Hey Hey Hey' achieves. You know that apart from being well able to sing the songs, Joe's heart and soul is right in there, as is the passion and expertise of his band, delving into the rich history of rockabilly, country and bluegrass and making it fresh, again and again.
