"...Hayley beat thousands of unsigned hopefuls..." - The BBC news.
"...Hayley Cassidy is a real breath of fresh air to the UK music scene the world needs to hear more of her..." – DJ Ace, BBC 1xtra
London born and raised, Ms. Cassidy learned from the tender ages of her early childhood that she had been blessed with the phenomenal gift of talent. Formally known as Hayley C, her solo career was first established within the genres of Neo Soul and R&B taking inspiration from the likes of Musiq, Angie Stone and Jill Scott to name a few. Hayley C's successes were never scarce as she also released her debut EP entitled 'Real Talk,' in 2009 equipped with an EP launch party, which was independently, funded.
"An amazingly talented Singer/Songwriter for our time and a gem to the UK music business!"
- UK journalist
Currently unsigned, Hayley continues to accentuate musical growth demonstrated through her debut album release in January 2013 entitled ‘Stripped’.
The success of Stripped led Hayley to have her very own headline show at 229 The Venue in Great Portland Street in 2014, and was attended by an extensive list of reputable industry members. Hayley was overwhelmed with the turnout as the night completely sold out and the venue reached capacity. Hayley has also performed at a number of venues which include the renowned Jazz Café, Google HQ and Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club to name a few.
Currently in the studio working on a new project, Hayley’s musical endeavours do not stop there, as earlier this year Hayley supported the Grammy Award winning R&B superstar Ameriie on her UK tour. Hayley was the only support act and wowed the crowd every night, ending the tour with a bang on both of the completely sold out London dates at the Jazz Café. Additionally to this Hayley has also supported Alexandra Burke in Edinburgh, Miguel at London’s very own Love Dough event and Eric Roberson on his headline UK show in Birmingham at The Drum. All of Hayley’s official music videos have been premiered and playlisted on BET’s 106 & Park. Limits are like a foreign language to Ms Cassidy the sky is only the beginning.
"The collaboration between Alexandra Burke and Hayley Cassidy is an investment by Talenthouse, into the future of music..." - Maya Bogle, Talenthouse spokesperson.
