"Beautiful voice & moving lyrics, infectious pop melodies/country influences"(The Telegraph)

Hailing from Darlington Hayley McKay is an extraordinarily gifted singer/songwriter with an amazingly pure voice. From studying at BIMM after winning a National competition , to appearing at Glastonbury, Cornbury and Northumberland Live, performing in Nashville and supporting iconic artists such as Tom Jones, Martha Reeves and Scouting For Girls, Hayley McKay is attracting attention wherever she goes:
 Although she hails from Darlington, McKay has been likened to American stars Colbie Caillat, Cassadee Pope and LeAnn Rimes thanks to her hauntingly beautiful voice and moving lyrics.
Hayley has a distinctive style that shows her to be an all-round country artist with flair that is very much her own.
This has led to the singer-songwriter heading to Nashville to co-write with twice Grammy-nominated songwriter Jan Buckingham (Whitney Houston), performing in Whispering Bob Harris's home studio, as well as her sharing the bill with, among others, Tom Jones, Albert Lee, Scouting for Girls, Jamie Cullum and Seal.
