A living environment will have an impact on a musician. Haley, performing under the banner of Trickster Fox, has used this to her advantage. She recorded an album back east, drawing upon the urban experience to create a cohesive work that ranges from solo a capella
to a full-band acoustic stomp. Piano (both grand and honky-tonk), acoustic guitar, harmonica, cello, choir, and rhythm section mingle with bird songs and sundry sounds to illuminate the story of a woman in love with a gamblin' man. The result is the six-song, 23-minute vinyl record "The Misadventures of, Vol. I", rendered at 45 RPM onto a 12" disc for maximum analog audio fidelity...and a larger canvas for the exquisite artwork. Her label, The Same Ghost Collective, is a small conglomeration of talented friends, supporting one another across the country.
Since Trickster Fox moved from New York to Spokane, the lush Inland Northwest has inspired Haley to take a minimalist approach to her music. She currently uses only a finger-strummed acoustic guitar and harmonica to support her breezy, nonchalant, yet pure voice. Still, she's certainly not above collaboration. During her regular Tuesday night gig at Luxe Coffee House in downtown Spokane, Andy Rumsey
and others occasionally join her. Thus Trickster Fox is more of an open-ended, evolving project than strictly a solo artist name.
