Edward C. Hayes (b. 1937, Chicago, Illinois) is a journalist and songwriter living in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He wrote several of the songs on this website following the death, in 1998, of singer Frank Sinatra, who had been a favorite of Mr. Hayes throughout the last decades of Sinatra’s long career. Hence the website features Sinatra’s picture on the cover, and three of the songs are directly about him.
Mr. Hayes has written and copyrighted 50 songs over the years.
