-- New Single PYTHON Out April 17 --
Claire Heywood will release the first single "Python" from her 2020 EP “I Won’t Resign My Love For That Old Dream” on April 17.
The video for this single, made by Nosferatune, was filmed at an architecturally intriguing parking garage in Denver and features backup vocalist Rebecca Hannigan playing and dancing alongside Heywood.
Where her 2019 EP featured dark, soulful songs of longing, the new single sees Heywood turn toward a confident exuberance. Python describes the experience of letting go of inherited stories.
"There are all these prevalent, frequently retold stories around us, and I think a lot of people hit a point where they have to rethink an onslaught of quietly integrated, messed up stories that prevent us from growing.
Python is about learning to let go of ideas that kept me from accepting what I am and what I bring to the table in my corner of the world."
Following a year of live shows promoting her first release, Heywood is excited to release new music that sees her take on new roles as a rhythm guitarist and co-producer. The songwriter's band on the new release includes Wes Barton (drums), Trevor Vader (bass), Duncan Britt (keys) Michael Sandoval (guitar), Becca Hannigan (backup vocals), and Sarah Ault (guest backup vocals.)
Claire’s debut “The Wind It Howls” was released to warm reception in Denver in March 2019. The release was followed by airplay on KTCL 93.3 and a UMS set that earned accolades from local press. In March 2020, Heywood was featured on Indie 102.3's "The Local 303."
The singer-songwriter's second release was recorded with her full band and guitarist / producer Michael Sandoval in his home studio. The group also recorded in part at Avalanche Recording Studio. Though current live show plans are postponed due to public health concerns, Heywood plans to release new music into the Fall 2020 season.
