Hayley Taylor always knew that she wanted to be a performer, it was something she dreamt about since she was a little girl sitting in the back seat of her parent’s car composing lyrics to random songs on the radio. Hard work and dedication to her craft is definitely paying off for this 15 year old singer/songwriter from Gambo, NL. Hayley is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist. Her instruments of choice range from guitar, bass, mandolin, and piano. Emerging on the music scene within the last year, she has been showcasing her singing and playing skills at various local stages, house concerts and open mics. She has been performing regularly at the Citadel House in Lewisporte, NL and in July 2016 during a stay in Northern Canada she participated in the Nunavut’s Got Talent competition and was delighted to win the first place prize at that event.
Hayley’s musical roots are deeply steeped in rich family tradition; from a very early age she was inspired and mentored by a diverse group of musical performers with strong influences spanning from traditional, folk and country genres which she now passes on in her own distinctive musical stylings. Hayley has a unique instinct for music and performance, enriched with her soulful voice and budding songwriting skills, making this old soul a true gem.
Determination to succeed, a powerful ability to connect with the audience and an effervescent personality separates this very special artist. “Realizing that I have the ability to make people feel my music, inspires me to work even harder!” Hayley continually demonstrates that she has what it takes to make her dream of becoming a star a reality.
In March 2017, Hayley signed on with Citadel House Records in Lewisporte, Newfoundland acquiring a multi-year recording contract with producer Dean Stairs. Stairs, who already has a number of emerging artists signed on with him, sees great opportunity for this multi-talented musician. The summer of 2017 will see Hayley release her debut EP, this recording promises to highlight her love of inspirational lyrics and powerful songs.
Hayley is certainly an artist to watch out for as she will surly leave her mark on the East Coast music scene.
