New Single – ‘Bottom of My Heart'



Hayley McKay's second single comes all the way from Nashville courtesy of writers Bill Diluigi and Kimberly Paige (found via a SongLink lead in 2016). It's a classic country track with a driving rhythm to which producer Matthew Parisi has added an edgy rock vibe. 
It’s undoubtedly Hayley's vocal, delivered with depth and an amazing maturity, that sells the song. The lyrics come to life and you can feel the emotion in every phrase. ‘Finding the right song to follow my debut single, Unspoken, was never going to be easy’, said Hayley. ‘But for me an upbeat, country track was the right way to go. The fact that it’s written by two amazing Nashville songwriters makes it really special - I just love singing this song!’
Hayley has performed in Nashville, played at Glastonbury, Cornbury and Northumberland Live and supported music legends such as Albert Lee, Skip Mcdonald, Tom Jones and Martha Reeves. She has achieved the accolade of having her songs played in Caffé Nero’s chain of coffee stores worldwide and is also a Prince’s Trust Ambassador.

You can see Hayley perform, with her band, at Durham Gala Theatre on May 13th and at Hardwick Live on Aug 19th.
Genre: Singer songwriter, Pop Electro Country

Biography
Hailing from Darlington UK, Hayley McKay is an extraordinarily gifted singer/songwriter with an amazing voice who has immersed herself in music and the performing arts throughout her young life.
In 2011 Hayley won a national competition that funded a scholarship to study vocals at The British and Irish Institute of Modern Music (BIMM) in Brighton. From there she graduated to an artist development course in London with Access to Music - former alumni includes Rita Ora, Jesse Glynne and Ed Sheeran.
In summer 2015 Hayley performed in Nashville where she co-wrote with the legendary Jan Buckingham. On returning to the UK she performed at Glastonbury, opening the Toad Hall stage, before supporting legendary guitarist Albert Lee on his UK tour featuring appearances at Sage (Gateshead) and The Lowry (Manchester). Hayley went on to support Visage, Go West and Hazel O’Connor and also sang on the soundtrack of the feature film ‘Harrigan’ starring Stephen Tompkinson.

At just 25 years old, 2016 was a big year for Hayley. Not only has she started to make a reputation for herself as ‘one to watch’ with outstanding performances at renowned London music venues such as The Troubadour, Ronnie Scott’s, The Half Moon, The Bedford and the O2 Academy Islington, Hayley has played a number of high profile gigs. They include Northumberland Live (June 25th) - as the main support for Scouting For Girls - and Cornbury Festival (July 9th) with Bryan Ferry, Jamie Cullum and Seal.

Hayley also supported Tom Jones at Noble’s Park, Isle of Man (Jul 26th), Martha Reeves & The Vandellas and Tony Christie in Lichfield (Aug 14th) and Scouting For Girls (again!) at the world famous Tan Hill Inn (Nov 18th) for a Children In Need fundraiser. Additionally, Hayley has achieved the accolade of having her songs played in Caffè Nero’s coffee stores worldwide. She is also a Prince’s Trust Ambassador.

2017 promises to be an even more exciting year for Hayley - her debut single Unspoken was released on Dec 9, 2016 (iTunes) and Hayley will soon be recording another album of original songs.
