HAYLEY WALLIS BIOGRAPHY
The rich textured tone of singer songwriter Hayley Wallis’ voice has an unmistakable confidence that is immediately recognizable. Hayley delivers a powerful emotional performance that evokes a response as dynamic as her vocal range. She is part of the Kitasoo/Xais’xais Nation, originally from Klemtu, a small isolated island located in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia. Hayley is well on her way to breaking into the scene with her debut single coffee cup, a relatable soulful pop anthem about mental health and reaching out for help.
She began her musical journey at a young age, singing for her family and community, and credits their support for developing the passion she now has. Moving from her home in pursuit of her artistic aspirations, she now resides in Vancouver, BC, balancing work life and family life as a young mother while steadily focused on her musical goals. Hayley has amassed tens of thousands of views on her YouTube cover videos and has worked hard to refine her original songs to release on major platforms. She is working on her highly anticipated EP set for release in spring 2022.
Hayley is passionate about leaving a strong legacy and paving a path along her way. She sings for herself, for her children and for her people and hopes to set an example that will empower the young generation of her community to pursue their dreams.
