Haley Dreis | Looping Voice and Instruments
Through musical looping, Haley combines the violin, with guitar, with voice. Be amazed.
Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Haley Dreis, currently resides in Nashville, TN, where she teaches violin, tours, records, and writes music for herself and others. In her hometown of Columbia, SC critics favor her as “one of the scene’s brightest voices” (Otis Taylor, The State newspaper) – and her debut full-length album as “a perfectly realized and surprisingly mature and polished pop gem from the still-young Dreis, who is as promising a pop talent as Columbia’s ever seen” (Patrick Wall, Columbia Free-Times).
At 23, she has recorded and toured throughout the southeast with Jay Clifford (of Jump Little Children) and Josh Kaler (of Slow Runner); and has performed alongside national acts such as We The Kings, Tonic, Edwin McCain, Toby Lightman, & Chris Barron (of Spin Doctors). She has performed at legendary venues such as the Bitter End (NYC), Eddie’s Attic (Decatur, GA), Bluebird Cafe (Nashville), and most recently graced the stage at the Grande Ole Opry where she played violin in the orchestra for Grammy Award-winning gospel artist Kirk Franklin at the Stellar Music Awards.
Dreis is a high school graduate of the North Carolina School of the Arts and a recent cum laude graduate of the University of South Carolina Honors College. Her most recent 3rd full-length album, “Lady With A Rocket” (September 2012) was honored “New and Noteworthy” on iTunes. Her full-length debut album “Beautiful to Me” (July, 2009) and her sophomore release “Taking Time” (March, 2011) are also available on iTunes and other digital retailers. She has collectively fan-funded over $18,000 via Kickstarter to independently release her albums.
