"Beautiful voice & moving lyrics, infectious pop melodies/country influences" The Telegraph NE magazine Artist of the year 2021 "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 acts including 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 The British Country Festival 2021 and at C2C: Country-to-Country at the O2 Arena in London and Glastonbury when they return in 2022. Her song Breathe reached the UK Songwriting contest semi finals and was BBC Intro track of the week radio Tees. Thinking About Last Night reached no 1 in the Ignition Country charts and she has had recent features in American Songwriter and Vents magazine. www.hayleymckay.co.uk
