Music is something you either have in your blood or you don’t, regardless if you have been sing all of your life or just a year. Haley Rynn is a person who just started singing about a year ago, but she sounds as if she has been singing her whole life. The voice she has is well-defined and tuned to country. She says music is her passion, and when listening, that passion shines through.
Haley has spent a good part of her life moving from one place to another. She was born in Boston, Massachusetts in December 2001. Then in 2003, her family moved to Texas, then 2011, moved to Lexington, Kentucky and in 2014, back to Texas they went where both of her parents are originally from. Shortly after moving back to Texas, she began singing. In this short time, Haley has come a long way producing great original music.
Singing turned out to be, kind of therapy for Haley. All of the moving around, singing became a coping mechanism to channel all of her emotions. She took up voice lessons and soon after, Haley had an opportunity to start doing live performances. Once the performances began, she was hooked. Haley’s first performance was at Rock 101, which is a restaurant in Little Elm, Texas. Haley has already made her way to Nashville and while there, she was able to perform at Rippys with her favorite Nashville duo, The Steel Blossoms. This was special for Haley.
Without wasting any time, Haley released her first single titled, Mind Of It’s Own. Her second single which just dropped is titled, I’m Alright. I’m Alright is a co-write between Haley, her friend Piper Byers, and her producer Geoff Rockwell. Haley connected well with both songs, with each carrying good messages.
The video for “Mind Of It’s Own” is out now, it was shot in Galveston, Texas. Haley really enjoyed filming the video. “I had a blast being on the beach near the water and then also on the old railroad tracks”, Haley says. Shooting was a lot of work and exhausting, but was fun for Haley. “My uncle shot the video and kept me laughing and upbeat the whole time, even in the Texas summer heat”, Haley said. Soon her second video will be released featuring her song, I’m Alright. Be on the look out for that.
One of the things Haley likes most about performing is, connecting with the audience. “Just watching them sing along with me and smiling is what keeps me going and gets me excited”, says Haley. When performing, besides singing her own songs, Haley enjoys covering Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert and Maddie and Tae. “I just love their music and I can really connect with their songs. I also think they are great role models” Haley says. It is part of Haley’s dream to be as good a role model in her journey and bring happiness to others.
Haley loves the writing process, and now with three songs under her belt, it is her song, I’m Alright that holds a special place in her heart. It is about her move from Kentucky to Texas, and all of the emotions she went through. This is where she gets many of her ideas for songs, through her own experiences.
In February, Haley will be headed back to the studio to record her third single. Haley wrote this single with the duo Steel Blossoms. They will be flying to Dallas to record the song with her. “The song we wrote is a letter to my little sister. Can’t wait to share this new song with the world”, says Haley.
Haley says, “I most want people to know that I am a strong christian and a very down to earth girl. I love to spend time with family and friends”. She is also a dog lover, enjoys cooking, shopping and playing her guitar. Haley is a cool girl, and has been for a longtime, and just how cool? Well back when she was eight years old, she had her own jewelry business along with two friends, they were called the Charming Chicks. Now that is cool.
Haley is a great new artist with a thing for writing some amazing songs. Be sure and keep an eye on her, Haley will be going places in music.
