Hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana, Healing Sixes have become one of today's top US-based independent rock bands. Consisting of members Doug Henthorn (vocals, guitar), Eric Saylors (guitar), Wade Parish (drums), and Jeff Stone (bass), the group have just released their fourth record, 'Blue Jay' - one of the group's most organic and stylistically diverse releases to date.
Since the inception of the band in 1998, Healing Sixes have been recording and touring steadily in support of their four full length releases - "Maple" (1999), "Enormosound" (2001), "One Less Friend to Ignore" (2007), and the aforementioned "Bluejay" (2010).
Healing Sixes have had a number of personnel changes and affiliations throughout it's lifetime. Drummer Jason Bonham was a member for four years, and Joe Bonamassa, Pat Thrall, Tony Levin and Anton Fig have all made guest performances on Healing Sixes recordings. Through all of these incarnations, Doug Henthorn and Eric Saylors have remained at it's core.
Doug Henthorn remarks, "Eric and I have seen lots of ups and downs with this band, but we've always focused on writing and playing the music for ourselves - it's totally self serving - but I think it resonates with true music fans as well as the talented people we've been honored to worked with."
As heard throughout "Bluejay", the band continues to grow and prosper. Healing Sixes are always about emphasizing that their songs create a strong, vibrant - yet never formulated - rock sound. Healing Sixes are just hitting their stride with "Bluejay" and look ahead with the same determination and focus that has brought this band to the top of the heap.

HEALING SIXES COMPLETE WORK ON NEW ALBUM 'BLUEJAY,' PREPPING FALL 2010 TOUR
Healing Sixes are out to prove that blues rock is as healthy and vibrant as ever. And they've done an exceptional job thus far - releasing a handful of outstanding albums, and playing alongside some of the most renowned names in rock royalty.
Hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana, and consisting of band members Doug Henthorn (vocals, guitar), Eric Saylors (guitar), Wade Parish (drums), and Jeff Stone (bass), Healing Sixes has released a total of three studio albums thus far, 1998's 'Maple;' 2002's 'Enormosound;' and 2007's 'One Less Friend to Ignore,' as well as an exceptional live DVD, 2008's 'Live at Harby's,' which captures the band in an intimate, acoustic setting.
Previously, Healing Sixes has played shows alongside the likes of Ted Nugent, Bret Michaels, The Why Store, Todd Rundgren, Night Ranger, Blue Oyster Cult, and Hoobastank (among countless others), and welcomed none other than drummer Jason Bonham into their band for several years. The album on which Bonham appears, 'Enormosound,' was also overseen by much in-demand producer, Kevin Shirley. Additionally, Healing Sixes' new album, 'BLUEJAY' (which comes out Tuesday, September 7th, 2010), marks the first time that the previously released single, "Fine Time," which features blues virtuoso Joe Bonamassa on guitar, has appeared on a full length release. The tune was originally issued as a maxi-single in 2009, and has been played regularly on such respected rock stations as WFBQ, WTTS, WRZX, WKHY, and WLBC.
Currently, Healing Sixes are hard at work in the studio, putting the finishing touches on 'BLUEJAY' (which will be available for purchase via iTunes, Amazon, Napster, Rhapsody, ItsAboutMusic.com, and the band's website on September 7th, 2010) - the follow-up to 'One Less Friend to Ignore.' The quartet has been able to keep their live chops up by playing several shows this summer, and will be hitting the tour trail more thoroughly come the Fall, when the announce a string of US dates to support their forthcoming album. Healing Sixes are always about emphasizing that their songs create a strong, vibrant - yet never formulated - rock sound, which will undoubtedly be on display once more on their forthcoming studio album. Get ready to rock once more with Healing Sixes!
