That’s what singer, guitarist and songwriter Ward Hayden did as he began mapping out plans for Girls Guns & Glory’s next album, which happens to be called Love and Protest.
“That title sums up this album and it sums me up very well too,” he says. “We’ve done 10 years of touring, living, learning and growing, maturing and developing a broader world view, a view outside of the small town where I grew up.”
That decade began with Hayden and several like-minded musicians getting together. Their love for early rock ’n’ roll, true country, raw blues and pretty much any kind of authentic American music branded them quickly as anomalous — and electrifying. Since that time they’ve barnstormed far beyond their Boston hometown, playing honky-tonks, beer joints and more recently concert venues throughout the U.S. They’ve amassed a loyal legion of fans along the way. The media have noticed too, including Rolling Stone, which heralds them as a “modern-day Buddy Holly plus Dwight Yoakam divided by the Mavericks.”
Now, in this milestone year, with Girls Guns & Glory recording for the first time on its own label, the group has channeled all it’s experienced into its most personal and, paradoxically, hardest-rocking release to date.
“Love and Protest is the name of the album because its songs explore the emotion of love,” Hayden explains. “And when love is faced with opposition, it’s the protest of that emotion. It’s alpha and omega — love and protest. There’s a lot of ground to cover between those two extremes.”

Eric Hisaw is a guitar player and songwriter steeped in his New Mexico roots. From his grandparent’s chili farm in Hatch to his small town upbringing in Las Cruces by tough, regular folks, Hisaw's spare, literary rock'n'roll songs move with working class swagger and simplicity, firmly rooted in country and blues but drawing on the energy and impulse of early punk. After some years of coast to coast (and beyond) touring as lead guitarist for the likes of Zoe Muth and the Lost Highrollers, Ron Flynt, Blue Diamond Shine, Bracken Hale, Mike Beck and the Bohemian Saints, Los Fabulocos and New Mystery Girl, the guitarist/singer/songwriter returned to Austin, TX, home for the past 20 years, to hone a lean and mean three piece traveling band, built of Hisaw’s guitar mastery, his gritty and soulful vocal, bass and drums, to bring his songs to life for the honkytonks and listening rooms alike. Mixing material from his four CDs with new original songs and a few covers ranging from Roger Miller to Johnny Thunders, the band inspires audiences in Texas, across the United States and beyond.
