hayley Ross

On Thursday 18th November our Level 1 Music students were treated to a live intimate performance by British singer and songwriter Hayley Ross.

Hayley performed 5 of her beautiful songs to a small group in our TV studio and after her performance, Hayley delivered a presentation and Q&A session to students about her journey to becoming a professional musician. Students learnt all about how Hayley got to record her own album, the challenges and rewards in the process, what it’s like working with a record label and what it takes to promote your own music. Hayley also showed students the vibrant artwork for her album covers, which she designed herself!

Hayley studied Music at Goldsmiths college in London and had massive success with her debut album ‘The Weight of Hope’ in February 2020. The album went on to be mixed by John Leckie (from Stone Roses and Radiohead) and was mastered at Abbey Road studios.

Hayley has been given air time on Lauren Laverne’s BBC6 music show, talking about lockdown during 2020 with several tracks aired and a number of her songs successfully synced on popular TV shows, including Orange Is The New Black, The Blacklist and Riverdale.

Students were really inspired after meeting and hearing all about Hayley’s journey to the top.
