Haley debuts in Seattle this weekend

C89 Listener
Appreciation Party
featuring Haley
August 14
Neighbours
Nightclub


Fans of electronic dance music be warned: Haley is coming to town! The up-and-coming singer/songwriter, who got her start singing for American DJ Kaskade, is scheduled to perform at Neighbours Nightclub for the C89 Listener Appreciation Party on August 14. Seattle Gay News caught up with Haley to discuss music, DJ's, and her LGBT fan base.

"I went to Seattle when I was 17, and ever since then, I always wanted to come back," Haley, whose August 14 show will be her musical debut in the Emerald City, told SGN. "I am excited to get the opportunity to come back."

Club kids everywhere will tell you there's no question that electronic music is moving into the mainstream, and Haley is along for the ride. "I love the energy of the music and I love the energy of the fans," she said. "I also love being able to create music that people can relate to or connect with in some way - and you can't help but dance. It's a break from the blah."

Haley says that, although her music sounds different, when she first started writing music she was inspired by Tori Amos, Jewel, and Natalie Imbruglia. "I wanted to tell my story like they were," she said.

Haley's upcoming solo album All This Love is due out in September. "It's really about the lure of the physical and the emotional in a relationship that keeps you coming back for more," she told SGN.

The world first got a glimpse of Haley's vocals when she sang for Kaskade. "I will forever be grateful to Kaskade for seeing something in me and taking a chance on me," she explained. "It's been a blast to be able to sing for a DJ that I am such a huge fan of and have so much respect for. He is not only hugely talented, but he is a great guy. Very down-to-earth. Very real."

Haley told SGN she is appreciative of her LGBT fans. "I feel grateful to all my fans and I am honored that they are listening - they are the driving force behind all the hard work," she said.

"When I perform live, it's so rewarding to actually see people's reaction to my music," she said. "I mean, you spend so much time in the studio working on the album, trying to get it just right, and then you send it out into the world hoping people relate to it and like it. But you aren't with them when they hear the song to see their reaction. I love being able to actually see people's response to a song. I also love the energy from the crowd - it's a rush!"

Haley says that her Neighbours debut is a show you won't want to miss. "You can expect good music and a good show," she promised. "This being my first performance in Seattle, I'm very excited and feel privileged to be able to perform for you."
