My first show at Revolution Hall - Haley Heynderickx along with Mama Bird's Songs-in-the-Round featuring Barna Howard, Matt Dorrien, Faustina Masigat, Ryan Oxford and Taylor Kingman was a sheer delight.
First off Barna Howard, Matt Dorrien, Faustina Masigat, Ryan Oxford and Taylor Kingman played solo songs one after the
other, moving from one artist to the next
all five facing the audience..going around
about three times - They were all very good, i
plan on looking each one of them up!
After that Haley Heynderickx came out to
a sold out "Rev Hall" playing songs from
her only album "I Need To Start A Garden"
and others. It's so cool that Haley came home to Portland to do a show before going
back out on tour in the U.S., Canada and Switzerland.
Heynderickx is a unique and masterful songwriter, i think my faves are "Jo", "The Bug Collector", "Oom Sha La La" and "No Face" wich she closed with, but i love them all! Haley Heynderickx is so sweet telling jokes and stories throughout the show as well as her band who were awesome! At one point Lily Breshears who shared vocals with Haley told
the story of how the trumpet players "butt was possessed by a ghost" and had to exit out his nose. All in all Haley Heynderickx was one of the best shows i have seen, she is a wonderfully cool personality and someone i could definitely hang out with,
