Cosmic Katrina Sneak Peek! Kickstarter Update!

Happy New Year! We couldn’t be more excited to usher in 2017 with a brand new album! We’re just a few steps away from being ready to press the record, but before we do, we’d like to update you on all the progress we’ve made! We completed basic tracking in August at More Sound Recording Studios in Syracuse, NY! Since then we have been hard at work adding the finishing touches to the tracks!

We have added horn parts, keyboards, synths, tons of vocal overdubs, and a bunch of cool percussion overdubs! We’ve been so lucky to work with all sorts of special guests such as horn players from West End Blend and Spiritual Rez, vocalist Shira Elias of Turkuaz, vocalist and guitarist Ryan Montbleau, percussionist Jake Huffman of The McLovins, and of course drummer Bill Carbone of Max Creek and Z3. Last weekend, our guitar players Juice and Smitty headed up to Vermont with our producer Craig Brodhead of Turkuaz where they finished up all the guitar overdubs at Madaila’s studio in Burlington.

We’ve been so fortunate to work with so many amazing people at the most wonderful places for this record! As we reflect on this amazing journey and think about mixing, mastering, and album art; we’d like to take this time to thank you once again for all the support! We can’t wait to show you what we’ve accomplished with your help!

Here’s a link to our Kickstarter update that includes a sneak peek of our song Comic Katrina! Cosmic Katrina Sneak Peek!

MSG Phish After-Party!!! B.B. King’s in Times Square! Hayley Jane And The Primates Do BOWIE!

Hayley Jane And The Primates are very excited to host a CEG Present’s Phish After Party at the legendary B.B. King’s Club! We will also be joined on a couple tunes by Shira Elias of Turkuaz and James Casey of Trey Anastasio Band! 2016 was such a sad year for the music world. We lost Prince, Sharon Jones, Leon Russel, Bernie Worrell, Phife Dog and Maurice White (among many others) in what can only be described as a tragic year. Perhaps the biggest loss of 2016 was David Bowie. The beloved rock ‘n’ roll icon spent years cultivating one of the best and most consistent catalogs in music, constantly delivering top-shelf material that continued to blow our minds with his final album, Blackstar, released just two days before his untimely death. On Wednesday, December 28th, Hayley Jane and The Primates will bring a raucous tribute to the “Thin White Duke” to the cozy confines of BB King’s Blues Club, giving fans one more opportunity to celebrate the life and music of the great David Bowie before bringing the awful year that was 2016 to a close on a high note.
