Hayley Reardon is a critically acclaimed folk-pop singer and songwriter, and a storyteller in the truest sense of the word. Raised in a coastal Massachusetts town north of Boston, Reardon dove head first into music at the young age of 15, and has dedicated nearly half of her life to writing, recording and performing music around the world. The artist’s songs have been featured on multiple Spotify editorial playlists and Apple Music playlists, with over 7 million streams on Apple Music alone. She has shared the stage with renowned artists including Lori McKenna, Rodney Crowell and Anaïs Mitchell, among others.
Reardon’s creative journey thus far has been distinctly international. Carrying her songs and stories all over the globe, she has performed hundreds upon hundreds of shows in over 13 countries – gathering experiences, inspiration and soulful connections. Reardon’s travels include a six-month artist-in-residency stay in Dachau, Germany in 2021. Her ever-deepening music carries a lyrical and melodic weight beyond her years, being described as “brilliantly moving folk/pop with a lyrical depth and soul” (Performer Magazine) and “a melancholy little masterpiece” (American Songwriter Magazine). No Depression writes “Reardon is truly a treasure.”
The past year has been one of artistic abundance and growth for Reardon. Her EP, Changes, which was recorded in Barcelona with renowned Spanish guitarist Pau Figueres as producer and collaborator, released in July 2023. The title track features an original bilingual duet with Catalan sensation Judit Neddermann, with whom Reardon formed a deep musical bond during her time in Spain and who appears on the EP courtesy of Universal Music Spain. Along with her own releases, Reardon co-wrote and sings on Seth Glier’s haunting new single My Body Remembers. She was also nominated as 2023 Vocalist of the Year by the Boston Music Awards.
At the start of 2024, Reardon released her first live concert album, “Live at Starseed Studios”. The project features 13 tracks from Reardon’s songbook with special acoustic arrangements by Pau Figueres on flamenco guitar and Arnau Figueres on bass. Reardon also recently returned to Spain to record new music with the Figueres brothers at The Sound of Wood studio near Barcelona. According to Reardon, her upcoming seven-song project, to be released in August 2024, takes a more organic approach with vocals and instrumentation tracked live with a five-piece band. Her extensive travels, recent move back to the States, and regrounding in a place close to her roots has given the songwriter much to contemplate. In “The Way I Am”, an upcoming single from the project, Reardon reflects, “I needed all this space just to feel the ache that has always been under everything.” These new songs explore uncharted emotional depths for an artist who is already known for her capacity to access tenderness.
