Album Notes
As the child of a theatrical family, Alycin Hayes grew up backstage at the renowned Stratford Shakespeare Festival of Canada. Duke Ellington introduced her to music on her family's piano when she was just three years old. Ravi Shankar dropped by for tea with his sitar to share his insights on Indian percussion music with her when she was an impressionable 13 years of age. Since then she has spent most of her life exploring and adventuring around the world.

Alycin first splashed into the international press when at 15 she took an impromptu swim with the Prime Minister of Canada, Pierre Elliot Trudeau. She has traveled overland through Europe, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, studied yoga in India with Swami Gitananda, watched the the sunrise over Mt. Everest, canoed through Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil's Amazon basin, danced with fire walkers in Fiji, studied Capoeira in Brazil with Mestre Sombra, researched King Halle Selassie's Barbary lions in Ethiopia and studied Thai temple drumming while designing musical instruments for the elephants that play in the Thailand Elephant Orchestra.

Some of the many percussion instruments that Alycin plays are jazz washboard, bongo cahons, magic keys, ashiko, djembe, log drum, guiro, caxixi, berimbau, wooden spoons, gongs, chimes, singing bowls, hill tribe elephant bells and many other unique instruments she designed and made herself. She has facilitated her workshops at retreats and colleges in Canada and the USA.

Alycin Hayes has performed music in United States, Canada, Iceland, Thailand, Malaysia and France with a wide range of musical groups that have included African, Jazz, Celtic, Latin, Reggae, Folk, Rock and her own Original Music.

In 2007 Alycin recorded a CD with the Canadian drumming group THE RHYTHM SISTERS. In 2008 she released a CD with the Florida Suwannee Folk Rock Band PROGRESSIVE MADNESS. Alycin is now recording some of her own sultry percussive folk songs. Moth Singed Candle is now available at as CD baby single.

Comments from listeners;
"Great work Alycin. You have a bit of the Marianne Faithfull thing going on." Trudy Artman Ontario,Canada

"Moth Singed Candle" has such a wonderful calming effect, and your voice is divine. I am not surprised it is doing well, and I hope may it continue to to well. It's too beautiful not to be heard. " Iris Ramos Costa Rica
