Hayley McKay

Displaying an incredible vocal range with a distinctive all-round style, which can effortlessly leap from earthy and soulful raw emotion to soaring and ethereal angelic tones, Hayley has been likened to Eva Cassidy, Joni Mitchel, LeAnn Rimes and Kate Bush. Hayley has co-written with twice Grammy-nominated songwriter Jan Buckingham (Whitney Houston) in Nashville, performed in Bob Harris’s home studio for his Under the Apple Tree sessions, and has supported Tom Jones, Albert Lee, Scouting for Girls, Martha Reeves and Hazel O’Connor. Hayley recently performed at the UK’s biggest Country festival C2C Festival at the 02 Arena London and Glastonbury Festival for the third time running. Her band also headlined the Introducing stage at Hardwick Live ahead of The Stereophonics. Some of Hayley’s other notable festival appearances include The British Country Festival, Folk on the Dock, Lindisfarne Festival, and The Americana Summertyne Festival at The Sage Newcastle where Hayley was selected as featured artist.

In 2022, Hayley was invited to perform at The Hot Country TV Awards in Ireland, in front of 1200 people and was presented UK Entertainer of the Year. Her song, Wild West, won International Single of the Year at The International Singer Songwriter Awards in Atlanta USA in August 2022.

Hayley’s single ‘Wild West’ was shortlisted UK Song of the year at the British Country Music Awards in London in 2021. It also reached no 11 in the UK iTunes Country Charts and is often played on national radio RTE Radio1, Absolute Country Radio, BBC Introducing and BBC Big Country Show.
