PREMIERE: Hayley Jane Releases Lush Pop Single “Ignite” Co-Written By The Main Squeeze’s Ben “Smiley” Silverstein

first_imgBurlington, VT-based singer, songwriter, artist, and actress Hayley Jane does it all. No matter the setting, Hayley Jane never fails to put on an emotionally-charged performance, whether it’s with her rock-Americana band Hayley Jane & The Primates, her duo Yes, Darling with Ryan Montbleau, her solo endeavors, or sharing the stage with countless of the scene’s favorite live acts.For her latest studio endeavor, she teamed up with The Main Squeeze keyboardist Ben “Smiley” Silverstein on a new pop earworm, “Ignite”. Through his years playing in The Main Squeeze and working as a producer in Los Angeles, Smiley has established a vast network of musical friends and collaborators. For his debut collaborative effort with Hayley Jane, Smiley enlisted the support of percussionist Jason Hann (The String Cheese Incident), guitarist Max Newman (The Main Squeeze), and producer Teddy Roxpin (Mac Miller) to provide their respective expertise in the recording studio.Co-written by Hayley Jane and Smiley, “Ignite” opens up with Hayley Jane’s lush, layered vocals before the song’s bouncing beat filters in. “Ignite” carries a graceful and delicate aura despite Hayley’s thought-provoking lyrics. The track’s winning incorporation of pop elements marks something of a departure from Hayley Jane’s folkier roots but, in doing so, gives listeners a glimpse at her veritable mainstream star potential. The added touch from Hann, Newman, and Roxpin guarantees to evoke the inner pop music lover in anyone who listens.As Hayley Jane shares about the song’s origins, “‘Ignite’ is all about taking action, lighting your fire, and letting nothing put it out. It encourages the listener to let go of the things that no longer serve them and continue to move forward.”You can check out the Live For Live Music premiere of  Hayley Jane’s new single “Ignite” below, and stream it on all platforms here.Hayley Jane – “Ignite”[Audio: Hayley Jane]Hayley Jane & The Primates are currently in the midst of an extensive winter tour.

According to this newspaper, French is on the market. The Barça club, always according to Sport, “could find a way out to try to recover part of the investment made.” However, he later does not rule out its continuation, although he says that it could be transfer meat or enter into barter. Griezmann is having a difficult stay at Barcelona. In the first months, there was speculation of a cold relationship with the team’s star and alma-mater, Leo Messi. Then his contribution on the ground was questioned game, a question that remains on the table. And now this information that puts him on the market, although already last summer a bizarre move was even published by which Griezmann would enter the Neymar operation without having even officially debuted with the Barça club.What is clear, beyond the information from Sport, is that by removing very few players that could be reduced to Messi, and perhaps De Jong and Ter Stegen, Barça in full is on the market. Jordi Cardoner, vice president of the club, already announced a year ago a change in philosophy according to which the fans would have to get used to seeing players come and go as soon as there are good offers. Barça is no longer considered a finalist club but is also willing to move the market and enter with its players.last_img read more
