After playing solo sets for small listening audiences alongside poets, comedians, and writers for several years, Heywood released an EP titled "The Wind, It Howls" in March 2019.
In April 2020, Heywood released "Python," the first single from her second EP, I Won't Resign My Love For That Old Dream. The collection was recorded and mixed at the home studio of bandmate/producer Michael Sandoval and sees Heywood take on new roles as a rhythm guitarist and co-producer.
