Sometimes, the phrase “singer-songwriter” can’t begin to capture how many different things a vocalist can do with a guitar in her hands. As a kid, Haley Heynderickx yearned to shred. At age 11, she sought out the only guitar tutor in her tiny hometown, but there was just one problem: her teacher taught only bluegrass. She became a model apprentice, diligent and focused on learning, later developing an infatuation for Bob Dylan. She says, “When I started, I just wanted to be a punk. Now, I love sweet, slow country—enjoying acoustic music for its own sake”. Heynderickx’s music immediately recalls folk music of the ’60s and ’70s mixed with a love of jazz radio. You can catch her on Tuesday (3/27) at Zanzabar appearing with The Low Anthem. Here from her debut album, I Need to Start a Garden, is the lead single, and it’s an ear worm, Oom Sha La La. This is Haley Heynderickx, The Opening Act.
