On her full length album, DIORAMA, Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Hailey Wojcik (VOY-chek) explores the many meanings of that word. Part theatre, part museum exhibit, each song is a musically unique and detailed glimpse at a life. The album was produced by Dan Romer

(Ingrid Michaelson, Jenny Owen Youngs) and makes use of a wide range of instrumentation, from Indian banjo to mellotron to recorded samples of animal noises, as well as strumstick, horns, ukulele and guitars.

While attending college in Michigan, Wojcik studied creative writing, a background that is evidenced in her songwriting. She identifies with literary protagonists of Kafka and Salinger in “Samsa Morning” and “Holden Caulfield,” respectively.

The closing song on the album, “Model Aeroplane,” is a duet she cowrote with legendary hardcore punk vocalist and Touch and Go Records founder, Tesco Vee of the Meatmen. The unlikely pair met while neighbors in Michigan, and are currently working on further
collaborations.

Wojcik is the child of zookeepers, an experience she recounts in, “Raised in a Zoo.”

“Amnesia,” a circus‐y song consisting of only ukulele, vocals and hand percussion, deals with the point in a relationship where the best option seems to be taking a blunt object to one another’s craniums to erase the memories of things that have been said, and start over.
