Emerging personality, Hayley Jane and the Primates, have a unique combination, unlike any other. You will notice nods of Americana, soul and rock & roll influences in Hayley’s self-written lyrics. Tonight, eager eyes looked on as Hayley graced the stage. Within moments she captivated the audience with her skillful, delicate movements. The atmosphere, which was just rowdy, transitioned to tranquil in a matter of seconds.
Unlike your average performer, Hayley and her crew could be seen mingling with everyone at the intimate venue, Blind Pig. She is very sweet, pleasant and ever so easy to talk to. I learned that one of her influences is Janis Joplin – check out this iconic photo!
Hayley has extensive training in dance and acting; she once played the role of ‘Annie.”
Hayley Jane & The Primates released their sophomore album ‘We’re Here Now’ 09/29/17.
