Simply put, Hillbilly Herald is the working man's band. At the advice of Guns N' Roses guitarist, Slash...they were formed by Indiana native, Jimmy Herald in Los Angeles. Currently they finished a full length album with Gilby Clarke producing and signing a deal with Golden Robot Records who just released their first single on Feb 3rd! No wonder guys like Eddie Trunk continue to support the HH camp!
Hillbilly Herald's sound is a colorful blend of some of their influences such as Guns N' Roses, early Aerosmith, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bob Seger. Their live show can only be explained as "highly energetic". Audiences are sucked in from the moment the lights go up. Raw guitar riffs, lyrical hooks, thundering bass and hard driving drums are the core of their Blue Collar Rock n' Roll Show. Whether they are headlining or opening, they know their job and they always deliver.
"These guys are great; the literally look like they've been swept off of a dive bar floor and piled into a van, then shoved onstage. Wild, raucous and nasty in all the right ways...keep an eye out for them" - LA WEEKLY
"A blend of Bon Scott and Lemmy, with the persona of an old school punk rocker ready to get right in the audience's face...it was energetic...it brought the vibe of the room up for Slash and crew" - LOUDWIRE
