Hayley Hutchinson is a British singer-songwriter. She recorded her self-financed debut album ‘Independently Blue' in 2005. The album is a dazzling collection of haunting folk lullabies and rootsy acoustic pop that merited a Guardian Single of the Week, extensive BBC Radio 2 airplay and caused Uncut magazine to herald her as a ‘love-starved Joni Mitchell’. Following this, Hayley toured relentlessly, supporting the likes of Richard Thompson, Ray Davies, Conor Oberst and Kurt Wagner and was handpicked to open the acoustic stage at the Glastonbury festival. In 2006 Hayley returned to the studio to record the bluegrass influenced ‘Held To Ransom’ EP that illustrated her deep musical heritage and coincided with Hayley’s debut appearance at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas. The rest of the year saw Hayley spend an increasing amount of time in America where she recorded the song ‘Pocket Full Of Stars’ with Nine Black Alps for the Oscar nominated film ‘Surf’s Up’ and formed the band The Sorry Kisses with Sam Forrest of Nine Black Alps. The Sorry Kisses further showcased Hayley's diverse songwriting talents by delving into harmony drenched, West Coast rock music on three acclaimed albums which were featured on Nic Harcourt's KCRW radio show in Los Angeles and recently the hit US TV series 'Grey's Anatomy'. Their third album 'Keep Smiling' which was released in 2011 was picked up by 6 Music's Marc Riley who later asked them to do a live session on his show. In 2007, Hayley teamed up with the acclaimed singer-songwriter Iain Archer to co-produce her second album ‘Love Songs For The Enemy’ in the German Black Forest.

The album revealed a much darker and more mature set of songs that reflected the more sombre side of musicians such as Neil Young and Gillian Welch. Following this, Hayley moved to a cottage in rural North Yorkshire. It was here in 2009 that she started work on her next musical project, her third album 'Ghosts In The Trees'. In contrast to her previous work, Hayley decided to sing other peoples' songs and in doing so asked her Sorry Kisses bandmate Sam Forrest to pen her an albums worth of songs. So in their home studio, the pair spent long November nights crafting an intricate and magical world that recalls the likes of Harry Nilsson, Judee Sill, the film soundtracks of Danny Elfman even a note perfect cover of Francoise Hardy's 'Tout Les Garcons Et Les Filles'. Hayley then went on to compose a film soundtrack with Sam Forrest for the independent film 'Crimefighters' which saw it's debut at the 2010 Edinburgh film festival. She has just finished recording and producing what will be her fourth solo album.

Recorded at their home studio 'Hawks To The Wind' is a welcome return to Hayley's solo songwriting and features a talented array of musicians giving it a rootsy, eclectic feel. Hayley also sings on albums by the likes of Keegan Snaize, Sam Forrest and recently, Benjamin Francis Leftwich's debut 'Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm'. www.hayleyhutchinson.info www.myspace.com/hayleyhutchinson Read more on Last.fm.
