Hayley Cannon shares new video from debut album: ‘Who Are You?’
soaring acoustic folk | ‘Who Are You?’ album out now
Cannon’s ‘Who Are You?’ is an impassioned story of introspective analyses, fulfilling in both depth and lightness. Sometimes choral, sometimes serene and brimming with personal wanderings, ‘Who Are You?’ feels, on occasion, naked: It’s raw yet perfectly produced, touching and intimate yet at the same time wholly sensational.
“I was resolved to redress the balance, and get a piece of me back”, she says of that time. First-written was ‘Blood And Bone’, before Hayley returned to London for more writing and recording, involving the ubiquitous creative overnights in the studio. “During that time music was just pouring out of me,and capturing it in the recording studio was the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done.”
Produced by Nick Trepka, ‘Who Are You?’ was released earlier this year and also features Nick Edward Harris. In addition, Cannon played violin on Speech Debelle’s latest record (also produced by Trepka), which explores similar themes to her own work.
