Hayley Hutchinson - Ghosts In The Trees

I initially checked out this album because I really liked the cover art, I'm really glad I did :)

Hayley Hutchinson is a British singer-songwriter, born in Northumbria in 1981. Much of her childhood was spent living on a croft in Scotland where she taught herself to sing by harmonizing to Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark. As a teenager she moved to York where the likes of Neil Young, Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons inspired her to pick up a guitar and write her own songs.

Since then she's produced a steady amount of independently-released albums and toured extensively.

March 30's Ghosts In The Trees, her third LP has a little more pop influence and a little less blue-grassy feel but it comes together really nicely.

You can check out some tracks from it on her Myspace. The whole thing is only $6.99 on Amazon, and well worth it!
