The band has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the $12,000 needed to fulfill their vision for their new record. As Hayley Jane and company explain in the video on the campaign’s page, Gasoline was completed on a very tight schedule with limited funds, and they are hoping to be able to give their new release the time, effort, and resources it deserves in order to make a high-quality, professional product. With Turkuaz‘s Craig Brodhead handling producing duties, the group plans to head to Syracuse, NY’s More Sound Recording Studios this August to track the as of yet untitled new album.The band is offering an array of fun prizes for different donation levels, including free digital downloads, signed physical copies of both the new album and Gasoline, tickets to an upcoming show of your choice, Primates merch, personal mentions in the “Thank You” section of the new album’s liner notes, personalized thank you songs and videos from the band, an original song about you or a loved one, and even a full live performance at your home!For all the info on the different donation/prize levels, and to donate to the project, visit Hayley Jane and the Primates’ Kickstarter Page.Be sure not to miss Hayley Jane and the Primates when they hit the Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY on Wednesday, July 6th! With Elise Testone and Hayley Jane on the same lineup, you know it’s going to be a party! Tickets are available here. Since the release of their last record, Gasoline, in 2014, Boston-based festival circuit favorites Hayley Jane and the Primates have brought their signature brand of genre-blending, vaudevillian story-centered live shows to audiences all over the country. Now, the band is ready to take their road-tested material to the studio, and they are reaching out to their ever-growing fan base to help fund the project.
KINGSTOWN, St Vincent, (CMC) – Former Windward Islands batsman Donwell Hector saved his best innings for last, as he helped Salt Pond Breakers beat La Soufriere Hikers by 19 runs and lift the inaugural T10 Vincy Premier League title here Sunday.Until Sunday’s final, the 31-year-old Hector had managed just 28 runs from seven innings, with a highest score of 10. In Saturday’s semi-final, he suffered the ignominy of being run out before he had faced a single ball.However, the experienced right-hander put his woes behind him to top score with a crucial 28 off 17 balls as Breakers, sent in at Arnos Vale Stadium, rallied to 100 for six off their allotted 10 overs.Breakers lost Test batsman and leading scorer Sunil Ambris cheaply for 15 to find themselves struggling at 30 for three at the end of the fourth over but Hector arrived to put on 35 for the fourth wicket with Urnel Thomas (13) to rescue the innings.Hector, who played the last of his 26 first class matches three years ago, struck one four and a pair of sixes before perishing at the start of the final over.In reply, Hikers slumped to 42 for seven at the start of the seventh over with Windward Islands Volcanoes batsman Dillon Douglas and Desron Maloney both perishing cheaply for five.Breakers fielded brilliantly to effect four run outs in the innings, leaving Hikers to limp to 81 for nine off their 10 overs.Botanical Gardens Rangers’ Hyron Shallow, who played 13 first class matches for Windwards between 2005 and 2008, was the tournament’s leading scorer with 285 runs.Ambris, poised to tour England with West Indies in July, made 274 runs at an average of 39 and snared 10 wickets with his off-spin.The tournament, the first competitive cricket staged in the Caribbean since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was played behind closed doors with strict social distancing measures and sanitary protocols enforced.
