Vocalist, composer, and producer Haley Fohr has been recording and performing under the Circuit des Yeux moniker since she was just eighteen years old. Born in the year of the Dragon in Indiana's own "Star City" – that's Lafayette, IN – she released records regularly over the past decades; four full-length albums, along with several mini-albums and singles. Meanwhile, she has played shows everywhere, touring all the time. She has been based in Chicago since 2012.
The records and shows have been done in primarily DIY fashion, as a means of navigating the world, genuflecting with Sagittarian energy. Circuit des Yeux reflects from a singular angle, looking deeply, at times unblinkingly, at connections and collisions of the cerebral and the physical, with a sense of colloquial grit and an equally opaque transcendent spirit in her words and her music.
Reaching for Indigo is the fifth album from Circuit des Yeux and is co-produced by Haley Fohr and Cooper Crain. It references a moment that fell down in the life of Fohr on January 22, 2016. Reaching for Indigo adds to the definition of Circuit des Yeux, as she realizes her goal of becoming one of the most distinctive voices of this time.
