Biografía

Formed in 1985, The Jayhawks
were an amalgamation of different bands working the Minneapolis club circuit. Their
self-titled 1986 debut album showcased their specific blend of rootsy country
and fiery rock. The group was discovered by Def American producer George
Drakoulias who signed them to the label and released their two best-known
albums Hollywood Town Hall (1992) and Tomorrow the Green Grass
(1995). 1995 saw the departure of founder member Mark Olson, but the band
returned with Sound of Lies (1997) which included the rocker “Big
Star”
.  Smile, produced by Bob
Ezrin, followed in 2000 and then Rainy Day Music in 2003, which enhanced
their reputation as one of the top bands in America. The mid-noughties saw a
period of inactivity, but by 2009 they were playing live shows again and released
the best-of Music from the North Country: The Jayhawks Anthology.
2011’s Mockingbird Time was followed by the Ray Davies collaboration
Americana in 2017. They teamed again with Davies for Our Country -
Americana Act II
and released Back Roads and Abandoned Motels in
2018. 2020’s XOXO marked a shift as longtime band leader Gary Louris
encouraged more input from bandmates during the writing and recording process,
and the resulting album contained a wider variety of musical styles than the
band had previously explored.
