After about 15 years of making low budget records with his past bands, Seattle songwriter Ian Jones finally decided to hire a producer and make a real studio album. With Producer Justin Cronk (Vendetta Red) calling the shots at Seattle's Toy Box Studios, the two went to work whittling away over 50 songs to come up with Piano Songs Vol. 1. Cronk brought in some of Seattle's best studio musicians including Garrett Lunceford on drums, Jacob Hoffman on bass, Jeff Fielder on electric guitar, Kimo Muraki on brass, sax, horns, steel and vocals, and Jordan Vestal on organ.
The result is an 11 song LP with nods to every influence Jones had growing up; The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Bowie, as well as more contemporary artists like Ryan Adams, Radio Head, and Coldplay.
Hayley Lynn's songwriting has been a quiet but profound pursuit. She draws from experience, and it is that which creates her soundscape. Within her playful banter and the sharpness that the wit of her songwriting provides, there lies a deeply personal look at who Hayley Lynn was, is and who she strives to become.
During a snow storm in Portland, December of 2015, Hayley Lynn started recording her debut EP 'Hypnotize' with producer Riley Smith and bassist John Bruner. The work on the EP continued into spring as she recorded in Studio 12 with Adam Green. Hypnotize' was officially released June of 2016 exploring dark themes shrouded in mysticism.
Hayley Lynn and her band recently added another member, Amy Håkansson, who plays the violin, banjo, guitar and the nyckelharpa. She is currently working on a new record at Bungalow 9 Recording Studio with Danny O' Hanlon as producer, the record will be released in 2017.
