Brother (a.k.a. David Bingaman) and The Hayes (a.k.a. Jennie Hayes Kurtz) grew up in Dallas, Texas fighting over an Epiphone dreadnought and listening to George Strait, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Fleetwood Mac. They both fell in love with songwriting and making music in Fayetteville, Arkansas while attending college and moved to Nashville shortly thereafter.
David and Jennie Hayes formed Brother and The Hayes in 2017, releasing 'The Dead End EP', a sampling of Americana storytelling and blues.
David, who is now based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, can often be found climbing up a rock faces or hiking for days on end throughout America's national and state park systems. When not on the road, Jennie Hayes frequently teaches songwriting programs and mentors young songwriters through the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.
In 2019 Brother and The Hayes produced and released their debut album, 'Tennessee Nights'.
