Hayley Fahey is a singer-songwriter who captivates audiences with her sparkling range and originality. What sets her apart, in addition to her writing and voice, are her live stage performances and the presence she has, exuding energy, confidence and love for the music. When Hayley is on stage, she’s home.
Fahey draws from the many influences of her Washington, D.C. area home. The soulful sound of R&B translates into her passionate vocal performances. Her writing and sound are versatile and inspiring, from her indie-folk vibe to catchy pop hooks that get stuck in your head.
She performs both solo and with her band of seasoned professionals on impressive stages like the 9:30 Club, State Theatre, Bethesda Blues and Jazz Club, Rams Head Live, Strathmore Music Center, The Hamilton, Takoma Park Folk Festival, Project HERA Female Fronted Music Festival, the Blue Plate Special Live Radio Show on WDVX in Knoxville, Tenn, Nationals Park Fairgrounds as well as many large festivals and concert series. Fahey has played alongside other DC-based pros such as Daryl Davis (keyboard player for Chuck Berry) many times at Bethesda Blues and Jazz, Ronnie Newmyer (Newmyer Flyer tribute shows), and has sung the National Anthem for the University of Maryland and the Bowie Baysox.
Fahey has recorded two full length albums, the second of which to be released April 28th, 2018. Her debut album (released in May 2016) attracted praise from industry professionals. The album was produced by her band member, multi-instrumentalist, John Trupp, an accomplished musician, songwriter and native of the D.C. scene. He performed with a nationally touring group that was signed to RYKOdisc, and sold tens of thousands of CDs, and is now helping Hayley on her musical journey.
