HAYLEY JANE & THE PRIMATES: ‘We’re Here Now’ Release

HAYLEY JANE & THE PRIMATES: ‘We’re Here Now’ Release
Hayley Jane & The Primates are proud to release their latest album We’re Here Now. 2017 has been a landmark year of touring for the band and this album shows the strength and depth that is blossoming as they become a staple in the national touring scene.


We’re Here Now takes listeners on an emotional roller coaster by mixing high energy dance tracks with songs that warm the soul. Hayley Jane’s lyrics are filled with rich imagery. Her dynamic vocals have a delicacy that touches the heart and also a raw power that can drive one into a frenzy.


The album will drop on Friday, September 29th alongside the band’s CD Release Tour kick off. We’re Here Now was recorded at More Sound Recording Studio in Syracuse, NY. It was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jason “Jocko” Randall, was engineered by Andrew Greacen & Jose Varona and was produced by Craig Brodhead (of Turkuaz).
