Touring In April

(28 March 2018)
It’s been a long time coming, but Hayley McKay’s self-titled, debut album, released on the Willow Records label, has been worth the wait. Hayley McKay is back with a bang after capturing audiences through both her live performances and her high quality produced tracks. After the success of her two previous singles, ‘Unspoken’ (Dec 2016) and ‘Bottom Of My Heart’ (iTunes; 5 May 2017), Hayley has been recognised by the likes of MaverickElmore Magazine, throughout BBC Radio including Introducing Tees ‘Artist of the Week’ and Bob Harris’ Under the Apple Tree sessions.

With performances in Nashville, Glastonbury, SummerTyne Americana as well as supporting iconic artists such as Albert Lee, Skip McDonald, Scouting For Girls, Tom Jones and Martha Reeves – it’s clear that Hayley is one to look out for in 2018… 

The majority of the tracks are written or co-written by Hayley proving there’s far more to her than just an amazing voice.

Haunting ballads, such as Ghosted and Don’t Give Up On Me, are supported by gentle acoustic numbers like You’re A Song and Matching Suitcase.

And there’s also an element of folk in another co-write - Following The Sun.

The lead track, Catching Fire - another country/rock track that found its way to her from Nashville - also deserves an honourable mention because it opens the door to what is to come.

The new single, Chance To Change, is a mix of all of these styles. Penned by Irish writers Aoibheann Carey Philpott and Joe Carey Jnr, it’s a mid-tempo, lilting song with a Fleetwood Mac vibe that confirms Hayley to be a true, all-round country artist with a style all of her very own.

“Every song shows off a different element of my voice and my producer, Matt Parisi, has really delivered an amazing sound with Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road adding his own special magic. I’m so proud of this album and I really hope everyone will love it as much as I do”. – Hayley McKay

Renowned writers, Aoibheann Carey Philpott and Joe Carey Jnr have created a distinctive track that compliments Hayley’s emotional vocals and topped off with Matthew Parisi’s high end production that hook you in deeper with every listen.
