Hey, I'm Haley!
Thank you for taking the time to read this AND support me in the creative music-making process! Whether you're just window shopping or looking to make it rain, you’re a super awesome individual. Thank you for your support, I couldn’t do this without you. :)
So first thing’s first, let me tell you a little about myself. I’ve been writing songs and performing in Nashville for a little over five years. Since putting down roots in Music City, I’ve put out two studio albums, toured the US and Europe and collaborated with a ton of talented and interesting people along the way. I’ve had the chance to grow so much as a musician and songwriter and I’m excited to share everything I’ve been learning with you all.
My fourth album is going to take my first love, classical violin, and my new passion, live-looping handmade sounds, and combine them into one amazing pop experience. If you're unfamiliar with loops, imagine being able to play multiple instruments at once, while performing them live on stage. Sounds awesome doesn’t it?
I’ll also be composing and arranging a string quartet medley for the album. This will be a very special project near and dear to my classical music heart. I'll be recording it at Forty One Fifteen with my dream team producers, Taylor Bray and Dewey Boyd. These guys are going to help me take the looping I do on stage and combine it with my strings and compositions to make an amazing new sound.
The songs I’ve been working on for this album are inspired by my travels on tour and abroad. I had the chance to see some amazing places and meet some outstanding human beings and they’ve all found a place in these ten new songs. I hope this music will inspire you to step out into the world and have an adventure or two!
You guys, we’re going to make a great record and I’m really excited about it.

I've got a bunch of extra goodies in the reward section, so scope out your favorite package! I have a few limited in quantity, so grab those quickly if you're interested - otherwise I just want to thank you so much for everything you do!
Risks and challenges
My previous experiences with 2 successfully funded Kickstarter projects have given me the advantage of hindsight and laser vision! But we’re only going to talk about the hindsight.
In reality, the most common obstacle with music projects is meeting the expected deadline. I've factored in all of the potential thunderstorms, the biggest shipping delays, draft errors, no sleep....you name it. I anticipate shipping all physical goods to you by the first week of December, 2016. Yep, just in time for you to get your goodies ready for the HOLIDAY SEASON! Perfect Chrismukah gifts, right?? Since it will require preparation and time for me to record the bonus items, my deadline for bonus digital goods is February 2016.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
