The Harmaleighs [website | Amazon.com] (pronunciation: the har-muh-lees) is composed of Haley Grant (guitar/vocals) and Kaylee Jasperson (bass/vocals). The Harmaleighs honestly craft poetic, passionate, and powerful songs cut from a pastiche of indie, folk, pop and Americana. In January 2015, The Harmaleighs embarked on something of a modern odyssey in support of their independent, full-length debut, Pretty Picture, Dirty Brush. The bandmates and partners got rid of their Nashville apartment, put everything they owned in a storage unit, bought a van, equipped it with a bed, and hit the road with their 8-month-old pug Gus sleeping on the dash for the next nine months. The trials, tribulations, and triumphs of this trek would ultimately inspire their 2017 EP, Hiraeth.
"Hiraeth is a Welsh word that we stumbled upon while we were on tour," says Kaylee. "It basically means, 'Longing for a home.' It's a feeling of rootlessness and homesickness that we started to collectively feel around month six. By the end, we had burned out."
"Even when we visited Nashville, we would be staying in a Walmart parking lot," sighs Haley. "That's where the whole concept came from. It's the basis for this body of work."
"I was sitting at a bar in Portland on month six of our tour," Haley continues. "There was an ashtray full of cigarettes, and I was having this moral dilemma in my head. I thought, 'What if I put all of that in my mouth and swallow the burning cigarettes because there are flames and maybe I won't be burning out anymore?' I thought it might spark the flame again."
The flame has been sparked with Hiraeth and their journey really begins now.
