Brighton based Hayley Ross plays a headlines show at Brighton’s The Prince Albert on Weds 16 March, to celebrate the release of her second EP. Following on from her 2015 debut ‘Fierce Love’, the singer-songwriter and multi- instrumentalist releases ‘Barracuda’ on Fri 11 March.
Influenced by the music being played around her when she was growing up, such as Suzanne Vega, Lou Reed, Cyndi Lauper & Paul Simon (and Phil Spector’s Christmas LP!), she could often be found armed with a blank cassette, hijacking her dad’s tape deck and laying down her own songs. Later, Ross went traveling all over Europe in a van and this was where she found the space to hone her song-writing skills.
Live she’s joined by Rory Clarke on drums and percussion. Together they flow in and out of her crystalline songs with a divine and edgy energy. They have been thrilling audiences around the UK with their heady mix of beautiful, intimate songs and bursts of full-on garage rock.
Ross has recently supported Smoke Fairies at the Heavenly Social in London and will be touring with Duke Special on four dates in Ireland next month.
