About

Fronted by Elkhart, IN native Jimmy Herald, Hillbilly Herald is rock ‘n’ roll for those starving for a break from fast-food, radio-repeated, sugar-shock pop. Influenced by the late 70’s rock of AC/DC and Aerosmith, their hard-hitting songs like “Shame on Me” and “Sucker Punch” pull concert-goers into a world of gritty, no-frills, in-your-face attitude that Slash calls “One of the most kickass R&R bands around” and KISS’s Gene Simmons calls “The future of rock and roll.”

True to their hard-working, blue-collar roots, Hillbilly Herald is a working-class band for everyone hungry for an honest, pull-no-punches rock experience that is the genre at its finest. From their initial eponymous release “Hillbilly Herald” in 2009, 2013 EP “Sunday’s Best” to their upcoming 2016 EP release, Jimmy is backed by Adam Wolf on bass, Ben LeRoy  and Tommy Peacock on guitars and Louie “Seabiscuit” Riel on drums.
