Here's someone from another town I used to live in, or close to. Nobody really ever lives in Detroit, it's always some town/city on the outskirts.
Don't know why that is.
Enough of that, meet Hayley Jane.
Hayley Jane is a singer / songwriter / burlesque artist / musician / make up artist and all around cool gal.
My first hint of Hayley Jane was from her Bandcamp page and her most recent album, thanks WOF.
Having enjoyed the album I went looking for some video, and was totally blown away with the different sides of Hayley Jane.
How does she get time for them all?
I don't know, but I hope she keeps doing so.
A self-proclaimed burlesque addict, Hayley Jane delights in gorging herself on all the information she can find regarding the history of erotic entertainment. Since her burlesque debut in November 2008, she has stripped up and down the East Coast, and performed alongside 2010 Exotic World Roxi D'Lite as well as Detroit's Lushes LaMoan, New York's Miss Astrid and Julie Atlas Muz, and the Squidling Brothers Circus Sideshow. She doesn't plan on kicking the habit anytime soon.So kick back and enjoy the multifluous stylings of Hayley Jane.

Oops! My bad, in the original post I had three videos of another Hayley Jane. Apparently another singer with the same name out of Boston, not Detroit. So without more ado, let's remedy that with some more of the real Hayley. 6-6-2012
