She was born down south, lives out west, and has a mind that wanders to wherever a good story lines up with a strong melody. As an artist, Eileen Hemphill-Haley tends to focus on the inevitable effects of human nature, how personalities repel, enhance or enliven one another -- what she calls 'the reactor fuel of relationships.' She then belts out her views in a musical style best described as 'story-oriented folk rock.' What does that mean? It means characters in action in her songs, making themselves seen and heard in the imagination. A perfect example of this is EH-H's folk-rock anthem 'Durango' -- a story about two people traveling around the west, not even knowing how lost they truly are, until they are trapped together in a huge storm. Another example is 'Broken Arrow', a lament of unrequited love, told from the point of view of someone who is unable to return the level of passion received. Another rich story is found in 'Tennessee Peaches', which recounts the horror of a war long ago, told by the ghost of one of the soldiers who perished in the fighting. The fourth daughter of a career Army officer and Irish-American housewife, EH-H was raised in an environment of constant change, moving from one town to another, being inadvertently immersed in different American subcultures with every new assignment. It was a life that helped her develop a keen sense of observation about the world around her, as well as a basic appreciation for everyday people, and the diverse ways Americans live out their lives. And being raised in a large family surrounded by women, she learned the value of speaking up and not being afraid to express original views. With guitar in hand, she has managed to take expression to a new level, and make it an art all her own. Listeners agree that the lyrics and melodies of EH-H's songs are equally compelling, and that the lovely combination of hook and wit is so inviting that it naturally makes people want to sing along. Although the alternate tunings may make the songs a challenge to figure out on guitar, they are no less a hoot to sing along with at home, in the car, or wherever her CDs may be playing. A major theme in her music is the woman as hero, a person who either rises above or does not permit herself to be a victim. But this is sung in the voice of a feminist who clearly loves men. 'Thanks to some incredibly wonderful men in my life, including my husband, son, and close friends, you can certainly detect the respect I feel for most men in my songs. But as a writer I also strive to be a voice for the women and children in our society who have had to suffer the worst of the lot, and have been denied a voice of their own.' This theme as the 'woman as winner' appears in the wised-up narrator of 'Jagged Line' who states she will no longer tolerate someone who insists on breaking the law; and in 'Left Him With a Lie', in which someone prefers to pack up and move out rather than be subjected to one more untruth; and 'Faith in the Ties that Bind', another wise-up tale in which the protagonist discovers the grace and strength necessary to finally let go. In the end, the secret to Eileen Hemphill-Haley's songwriting is that there ARE no real secrets. 'I want my songs to be interesting and original,' she says, 'not obscure. Songs are a form of literature; short stories or prose set to music. Nobody wants to finish reading a story, and then have to wonder what in the world it was about. I want my listeners to understand my message, and feel involved. Otherwise, what's the point of playing for an audience?' It's not that metaphors never appear in her writing, however. 'Oh yeah,' she says, 'Love the metaphor. Just got no use for mystery.' ======= Insights to the songs: DURANGO Here's a story two people out wandering through the west, too focused on their work to even realize how lost they really are. They happen to become trapped in a storm together, and by the time the weather clears, well, everything is different. BROKEN ARROW Ah, 'unrequited love', aka 'why love really sucks sometimes.' Rejection is bruta
