Skip Haynes wrote the Classic rock song Lake Shore Drive and was lead vocalist for Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah - popular Chicago based band in the 70's and early 80's. He produced and wrote five albums and several singles with AHJ.

He moved to Los Angeles in the early 80's and continued to write and produce music.

He formed the Laurel Canyon Animal Company with his partner Dana Walden (formerly of the band Champaign and a hit song writer) in 1999. It's the only record label in the world that creates music about, for and with animals.

Skip is a co-founder of CLAW (Citizens For Los Angeles Wildlife) a non-profit dedicated to saving and preserving wildlife and habitat in Los Angeles.

Haynes has been an anti-development political activist for the last fifteen years in Los Angles where he now lives.

Hold Them Accountable is a result of that activism.

Long Time Coming


I've spent half of my life in Chicago and half of my life in Laurel Canyon in the Hollywood Hills.

Laurel Canyon
– ten songs/stories taken directly from the cradle of California folk-rock – the most famous musical canyon in the world nestled high in the Hills above Los Angeles.

Laurel Canyon is based on the history, music and the people who have made the canyon the icon of creativity it is today - from Tom Mix to Joni Mitchell to Frank Zappa to the Doors to Crosby, Stills & Nash to the aliens that live in the caves near Harry Houdini’s place - Laurel Canyon. There’s no other place like it.
