Hayley McKay Short Info

Some of my achievements up to date include performing solo at Newcastle City Hall, at the event Sunday for Sammy, where I was amongst some fantastic performers such as Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits), Tim Healy and Lindisfarne. The DVD is out now in HMV and local music stores.
I have supported various artists at the 02 Carling Academy (Newcastle), and I have also supported artists including Lauren Pritchard (signed to Island Records), Hazel O Connor, Visage, and blues legend Skip “Little Axe” McDonald.
I have always had a passion for musical theatre, and have performed across the country in many musicals and opera’s, including Her Majesty’s Theatre, starring as a young Marylin Monroe. This was one of my first performing experiences, at the age of only 9yrs.
Recently, I sang on the soundtrack for the film Harrigan, starring Steven Tompkinson.
I won a National Talent competition in 2011, whichfunded me to study for a year at the prestigious Brighton Institute of Modern Music, BIMM. http://www.sundaysun.co.uk/news/north-east-news/2011/06/19/song-based-on-great-grandmother-s-poem-wins-contest-for-north-girl-79310-28901515/

I recently studied at The British Academy of new Music, Access to Music London.
I am also part of an electronic duo, Silent Houses http://www.facebook.com/silenthouses
In 2014 I performed at Glastonbury festival in the Green futures field. It was an amazing experience, and I loved every minute of it!!
