Hayley Beth feels uncomfortable about writing bios. _______________________________________________________________________________________ "Hayley Beth has been smouldering away on the Perth scene for years now, accumulating more buzz than Whitney Houston's nostril hairs. Listening to her EP, it's easy to see why. The diminutive Beth houses an intimidating big, deep voice, and she delivers kitchen sink lyrics with a bluesy honesty that you cold just get lost in. Part Aretha and part Billy Bragg, Hayley Beth has a talent for vocal melody and lyricism that most 50-year-old blues maestros would kill for.
If you could bottle this EP, it'd get you drunker than you've been in years and leave you open to all kinds of unwise suggestions. Mesmerising." - Drum Magazine, Single of the Week "Drink up,, it's a long weekend! A large glass of Jameson Whiskey, gnarly and harsh yet full bodied - a fair comparison to our opening act and admittedly her preferred gargle of choice. Our visitor from WA, Hayley Beth, possesses a powerful voice, one a veteran bluesman would be proud of. Though Etta James springs to mind, her inspiration surely reaches further back - think Bessie Smith or Memphis Minnie.
We are treated a snarlin' bluesy set with some deft acoustic playing highlighted by tracks such as Crooked Spine, A Mouth Shut, El Capitan and Don't Come Home." - InPress, Melbourne "Quite simply, they don't make 'em like Hayley Beth any more. Just a few notes of her powerful, hint-of-whiskey voice reveals an old soul, capable of hinting at something about the universe that the rest of us may not yet have realised." - Xpress Magazine "Soulful, honest and utterly mesmerising, those who dared to take their eyes from her tender solitary frame were ignorant to the fact that this little lady is a complete dynamo. In the most literal sense... Gorgeous and rich, ironically her vocal style sounds more suited to a delicious black songstress straight out of raging eras past - not a fresh-faced girl from the back quarters of this isolated city.
And the stories she spills are most deceiving to her age.." - Fasterlouder.com "You sound old" - Tomás Ford Bookings: email@example.com Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
