On the Move…

Long time, no see!

Heading to Portland, Oregon later this month for the AWP Conference, but first, let me tell you this, which you won’t believe:

#4 From the Archives: Haley Gray ~ Young Avante-Garde Jazz Artist

I featured Haley two years ago and I’m happy to report that she’s still taking her music to the next level from her junior year in college. She’s growing into her voice; spellful, grounded in a youthful wisdom that makes you glad you are listening.
Here’s an update from Haley:

Since starting school at Hampshire College in MA, Haley has studied history and philosophy while continuing to pursue music. After meeting fellow classmate, Hunter Johns in a jazz improvisation class, the two began writing songs together. As the songs developed, the project blossomed into the 5 piece indie jazz band, ‘Grey Heron.’

After performing for several months on Hampshire campus and Brooklyn, NYC, Grey Heron recorded a small EP album made up of songs written by Haley Grey and Hunter Johns. They are on the brink of releasing their debut album and are out with their first single, “Home is an Airplane” available for now on bandcamp and soon Soundcloud and Spotify.
