THE JAYHAWKS Waiting For The Sun 1993


Artist Biography by

Hollywood Town Hall
Led by the gifted songwriting, impeccable playing, and honeyed harmonies of vocalists/guitarists Mark Olson and Gary Louris, the Jayhawks' shimmering blend of country, folk, and bar band rock made them one of the most widely acclaimed artists to emerge from the alternative country scene of the '80s. Playing an evocative blend of downcast, folk-leaning pop with Neil Young-informed country accents, the band emerged from the Minneapolis music scene in the mid-'80s, and after a pair of early independent releases, the group became critical favorites and cult heroes with the release of their first major-label album, 1992's superb Hollywood Town Hall. After 1995's Tomorrow the Green Grass, Olson left the group, and under Louris' leadership, they went on, displaying a more pop-oriented direction on 2000's Smile. After 2003's Rainy Day Music, the Jayhawks went on hiatus, but Olson and Louris reunited the band for 2011's Mockingbird Time. Olson once again dropped out, but Louris gave the band a third act with 2016's adventurous Paging Mr. Proust
