With a voice that is distinctively rich and a contemplative sincerity in her songwriting, Hayley 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.
Hayley has toured extensively throughout the US sharing the stage with acts like Lori McKenna, Anais Mitchell, Jessica Lea Mayfield and Birds of Chicago. In 2017, she embarked on a unique adventure called “The Handwritten Sessions,” a tour of intimate spaces and non-traditional venues throughout the UK. With the help of with London based production company, Webb Street Studios, she released a live video series and tour documentary that planted the seeds for her raw and deeply reflective upcoming release entitled “Where I Know You” (out early 2019).
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) was entirely fan-funded by a highly successful Kickstarter campaign. No Depression offered its stamp of approval saying “one would be hard pressed to find another set of songs as beguiling as [Good].”
