"Beautiful voice & moving lyrics, infectious pop melodies/country influences"
The Telegraph
"The up and coming apple of the British music industry’s eye"
Elmore Magazine, USA
“Potentially [the North East’s] most significant contribution to the music scene since Sam Fender”
Narc Magazine
Displaying an incredible vocal range with a distinctive all-round style, which can effortlessly leap from earthy and soulful raw emotion to soaring and ethereal angelic tones, Hayley has been likened to Eva Cassidy, Joni Mitchel, LeAnn Rimes and Kate Bush.
An accomplished and insightful songwriter, who effortlessly captures deep emotional sentiment with moving sincerity, she has co-written with twice Grammy-nominated songwriter Jan Buckingham (Whitney Houston) in Nashville, performed in Bob Harris's home studio for his Under the Apple Tree sessions, and supported such major acts as Tom Jones, Albert Lee, Scouting for Girls, Martha Reeves and Hazel O'Connor.
Hayley is releasing new material this year, and is especially looking forward to performing at C2C: Country-to-Country at the O2 Arena in London, at Glastonbury, and at The British Country Festival when they return in 2021.
One of her upcoming songs has just been shortlisted out of 18,000 entrants in the International Song writing Competition.
Hayley is currently recording new material for release in 2020
