Album Review: Jeffrey Halford & The Healers -- Rainmaker

JEFFREY HALFORD RAINMAKER CD COVER ARTEach song plays like a scene from a movie. The tunes are vivid takes on love, relationships and the human condition. Halford is the writer and has a rich, emotive voice that is an uncanny blend of Petty, Dylan, Knopfler, Robertson, Cooder and the like. From the southwestern landscapes depicted in “Rainmaker,” the love rekindled in “Thunderbird Motel,” to the S.F. street scenes of “North Beach,” the poetic guitarist and his crew deliver the goods with a well-crafted fusion of blues, country, folk and rock. A distinctive Americana sound that is equally fresh and familiar. – Eric A. Harabadian
