Hayley Jane and the Primates on Friendship, Loss and Laughter in Relix Magazine!

Relix magazine has a special treat for Hayley Jane and the Primates fans on page 21 this month! We are so honored to be in included in the Jan/Feb issue of our favorite jamband magazine. This issue even has one of our favorite artists on the cover, Beck! The article is titled “Hayley Jane and the Primates on Friendship, Loss and Laughter.” Relix writer Raffaela Kenny-Cincotta interviewed Hayley, Justin, and Josh over the phone from a greenroom in Denver!

“The Primates’ joy is palpable—Hayley Jane captivates her audiences with the kind of theatrics usually reserved for Mick Jagger or Janis Joplin, and all five band members wear permanent smiles as they jam along genre lines, spinning together influences from the ‘60s to the ‘90s.”


Hayley Jane Featured in the Boston Herald!

Jed Gottlieb of the Boston Herald writes “Plenty of musicians keep busy schedules, but it’s hard to imagine anyone competing with Hayley Jane’s calendar. Jane came up in the Boston scene over the past few years while fronting her funky, soulful band, the Primates, who seem to be permanently on tour. Less than six months ago, Jane and the Primates released the LP “We’re Here Now,” a forceful rock album with detours into folk, r&b and Afro-pop. Currently, she’s finishing up a project with fellow Boston scene alum Ryan Montbleau called Yes Darling. The duo composes humorous and heartfelt songs about love, romance and your partner driving you nuts. And somehow Jane has found time to book a Tuesday night residency at Atwood’s Tavern in February.”

Warren Haynes Xmas Jam was a Blast! Here’s a recap from Jambase.com

We had an incredible time at Warren Haynes 2017 Xmas Jam in Asheville! We can’t wait to come back to NC in March! Scott Bernstein of Jambase.com included us in his Xmas Jam recap! Check out part of the article below.

As the clock approached 3 a.m. on Saturday night (or Sunday morning depending how you look at it) Warren Haynes was on-stage leading Gov’t Mule through a powerful rendition of one of their signature songs, “Mule.” Haynes and his mates showed no sign of weariness despite this being the end of a marathon night and weekend in Asheville, North Carolina.

Up at the Asheville Music Hall, on-the-rise jam act Hayley Jane & The Primates won themselves some new fans with dynamic versions of “Cosmic Katrina” and “Hurricane Jane” as well as a romp through Jefferson Airplane’s “Volunteers.”

Hayley Jane and Ryan Montbleau have been making music for a while. They both release albums and tour heavily with their own groups, but we’re really glad they’ve made time for another project. We’ve been excited to share these sessions for quite some time. Filmed on a hot day in July, Hayley Jane and Ryan perform three songs from their new duo, “Yes Darling”. The two of them bounce seamlessly between lyrics of charming banter, nostalgia, and endearment. They shed light on how we let our past effect our future and how love is a force to be reckoned with.
