BLAZING HIS OWN PATH
Mendon Hale grew up in St. Joseph, Missouri. While he has lived in many different cities and states (including Nashville and Texas), his heart and home were always in Missouri, where he resides once again. Throughout his extensive and diverse music career, Hale has lent his songwriting skills and musical expertise to numerous albums across various genres, including one RIAA Gold album in Japan.
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 (Aaron Watson, Josh Abbott Band, and Frankie Ballard). This partnership resulted in the 2021 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.
Hale reunited with Altman to embark on his eagerly anticipated second EP, “Just Goodbye” which was released on January 19th 2024, further solidifying his artistic prowess while captivating audiences across the country music landscape.
