I’m Hayley Mynnette. I’m currently 16 years old, going into my junior year in high school. I’ve been interested in music and performing for as long as I can remember. I used to put on wonderful little shows in front of the fireplace; thank you mom for watching every single one without fail. I was always more into drama and when I was cast into my first musical, it was required I take some vocal lessons. I feel in love instantly and never looked back. My vocal coach used to always call me her “little New Yorker.” In sixth grade I decided to take up guitar, and when my best friend moved away that year, I wrote my first song. I suppose from there you could say the rest is history. I continued pursuing guitar, wrote new songs constantly, and even learned a little piano. I was in a band for around two years, which was a wonderful experience and helped me gain a lot of confidence on stage. I’m now more of a solo performer and occasionally play with Tommy Daly (my producer), or more recently with Kylie Capella (a wonderful pianist).
Besides music, I do have some other interests. I’m still very much into drama and take it at my high school. The past two years I have also been on the tennis team, and during winter I go up skiing almost every weekend. As nerdy as it sounds, I actually do enjoy school to an extent and am especially into math. I’m most definitely an animal person. If I even kill an ant, a burial is a necessity. I’ve recently gotten into collecting and listening to records, as they just sound different, and I find it intriguing. I’ve also recently gotten into the habit of burning incense in my room pretty much 24/7, and the smell has started to spread to the whole house. I guess I should add in one more thing, I’m a total klutz. But I accept it, and it brings others joy, so it could be worse.
That’s me in a nutshell. Every fan matters to me. I play originals as well as covers, so if there are any covers you would like me to play because you think I would do them well, or it’s just plain your favorite song, shoot me an email! Thanks so much guys, I can’t wait to see and hear from you all soon!
