Reardon was named a Bostonian of the Year by the Boston Globe Magazine in 2012 in celebration of not only her music but her work to use it as a vessel for empowerment. With a voice that is distinctively rich and a contemplative sincerity in her songwriting, Reardon has far more in common with Patty Griffin
, Lucinda Williams
, and Tracy Chapman
than many of today’s young pop singer/songwriters, boasting a lyrical and melodic weight far beyond her years.
Performer Magazine describes her music as “brilliantly moving folk/pop with a lyrical depth and soul,” while American Songwriter Magazine refers to Numb and Blue
, the lead single from Wayfindings
, as “a melancholy little masterpiece.”
Her latest album, entitled Good
(Fall 2016 release) was entirely fan-funded by a highly successful Kickstarter campaign. Produced by Lorne Entress (Lori McKenna, Catie Curtis, Erin McKeown), Good
is a dazzling reflection of a period of immense growth and change, as lush arrangements surround the heart felt and humble rawness of Hayley’s writing.
