BLAZING HIS OWN PATH
Mendon Hale had his humble beginnings in rural Missouri, surrounded by endless cornfields. His passion for music ignited at a young age, as he picked up a guitar and started crafting his own songs at just 12 years old. It wasn't long before Mendon took his talents to the stage, performing live during his college years.
Throughout his extensive music career, Hale has traversed the globe, leaving his mark on the industry. With a diverse musical background, he has lent his songwriting skills and musical expertise to numerous albums across various genres. Mendon's artistic journey weaves together a rich history of experiences, driven by an unwavering passion for authenticity and a relentless pursuit of musical excellence.
In 2020, he took a significant leap forward by independently releasing a self-produced album, setting the stage for a fruitful collaboration with his close friend and accomplished producer Marshall Altman (known for his work with artists such as Aaron Watson, Josh Abbott Band, and Frankie Ballard). This partnership resulted in an EP titled "Hand on the Heartland," which garnered widespread streaming appreciation and saw its music videos in rotation on esteemed channels like CMT and The Country Network.
Currently, Hale has reunited with Altman to embark on his eagerly anticipated second album, which remains untitled. The album's first single, "Girly Drinks" debuted on January 20th to resounding acclaim. Building on this success, his second single, "My Number" was recently released on April 21st, and then "Jack and Coke" on June 16th. His latest offering, "No Problemo" arrived on August 18th, further solidifying his artistic prowess and captivating audiences across the country music landscape.
