HAYL is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Not too long ago, she released an honest pop tune, entitled, “The Cynic”.

HAYL – “The Cynic” single

“My friend took me to dinner so I could unload all my emotional baggage. Trust issues, crippling anxiety, and the list go on. Over wine and sh*t talk, I began feeling relieved until the convo flipped to her telling me she was getting ~married~. Without hesitation, an untimely panic attack made its debut. The thought of love made me want to jump out of a moving car. Few see ‘The Cynic’ in me, but I’m realizing I’m allowed to feel everything and be multidimensional, so this song is my jaded side.” – HAYL stated

‘The Cynic’ contains a relatable narrative, pleasing vocals, and emotionally-rich lyrics. Also, the likable tune possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with a commercial pop aroma. Furthermore, “The Cynic” serves as a wonderful presentation to what listeners can expect to hear from HAYL in the near future.  

“I wish I could be happy for them but I stopped believing in love.”

“I love having deep conversations with people, and I want my music to be just that. Everything from love and happiness to hurt, struggle, jealousy, and so much more. Because we’re all human…well most of us.” – HAYL

HAYL grew up in a small Florida beach town with two sisters, one of whom is non-verbal and on the autism spectrum. Therefore, expressing feelings was always a struggle for HAYL because she didn’t want to disrupt the peace within her household. Since a young age, writing songs and playing music became a remedy to that. In 2017, she gave up a corporate job at the PGA TOUR and moved to Nashville, TN to pursue her musical dream as a solo artist, as well as co-writing for other artists.
