Haley Heynderickx – Unpeeled is available now, here!
Please come celebrate the release at our benefit for APANO featuring Haley, Forest Veil, and Black Belt Eagle Scout at Alberta Street Pub on Saturday, March 18th.
We never really thought of Unpeeled as an audio series.
We’d envisioned Unpeeled as a more elemental companion to Live from the Banana Stand, and conceived it with the intent of capturing lightly-produced performances in each artist’s natural environment. It seemed possible that video would be a necessary component of Unpeeled, and we didn’t think to release the recordings in a more traditional manner.
Haley Heynderickx – Unpeeled proves just how wrong we were, and once again ably demonstrates the potential of recording outside of studio environments. With Haley’s seemingly effortless, mesmerizing performances, the natural reverb of her kitchen and living room proved to be more than sufficient. No need to overdo it: press record, let Haley be Haley, and you’re going to get something special. We did.
We feel really fortunate to have teamed up with Haley on this release. She’s one of Portland’s most promising young artists, and we’re hoping for big things for her. Keep an eye out for her stuff and tune in. And, please look for other “Unpeeled” EP releases from Banana Stand in the future.
Haley Heynderickx – Unpeeled was recorded in live sessions at Haley’s house on July 12th, 2016. The session was recorded and mixed by Isaiah H. Brown and mastered by Matt Thomson. Cover art for Haley’s release was designed by Dane Brist and features photography from Darren Hartman.
