Houston native Haley Georgia has wanted to be a songwriter for as long as she can remember. Gaining inspiration from artists like Johnny Cash, Eric Church and Taylor Swift, Haley began writing and performing in local talent competitions from an early age – winning her first title at age 11 with her rendition of Martina McBride’s “When God Fearin’ Women Get the Blues.” Haley made her first trip to Music City a year later to perform at an open mic night at Nashville’s famed The Bluebird Cafe. Traveling back and forth between Houston and Nashville as often as possible over the next few years, Haley forged her path performing at writers’ rounds all over town and writing with new acquaintances. Immediately following high school graduation, Haley, with her parents’ blessing and a handful of songs, officially made the move to Nashville. Flash forward to a few years later and now, this 21-year-old is currently in the studio recording her debut album for EMI Records Nashville.
Fans and critics alike gravitate to Haley’s candid lyrics while Billboard Magazine appreciates Haley’s “youthful inflections” and “wit.” Haley taps into pop influences and Millennial slang, and gives listeners a taste of a new star who is not afraid to take chances.
