Gwenyth Hayes

June 16 at 6PM | O&W Grove Stage - Top of the Park (Ingalls Mall)

Genres: Jazz, R&B, Neo Soul

Hailing from Ann Arbor with ties to Detroit, bassist and vocalist Gwenyth Hayes reinvents popular soul, jazz, soft rock, and blues standards with a sensual, contemporary feel. Centered around her sultry voice, groove-oriented bass lines, and tight instrumental arrangements, Hayes’ sound has distinct cross-generational appeal. She has toured with artists such as Murali Coryell (son of legendary jazz guitarist Larry Coryell), Motor City soul band Laura Rain and the Caesars, and Detroit-born guitarist Quintus McCormick, among many others; her ensembles have performed at many festivals and venues throughout Southeastern Michigan, Chicago, and Honolulu. Presently, she is a 2023 fellow for the Amplify Project in Washtenaw and also performs with GWAN, a cover band with Dan Evola. Hayes’ modern approach, imbuing lush interpretations of popular covers with contemporary groove, gives her music diverse appeal. A2SF welcomes her jazzy, neo soul vibes back to Top of the Park this summer!
