Hailey Tuck: Bio

"the Millenial's Louise Brooks" – Marie Claire
"the soul of a Jazz Age libertine" – Entertainment Weekly

Hailey Tuck's story sounds like a far-fetched film script. A teenager from Texas with a bob borrowed from Louise Brooks and a suitcase stuffed full of vintage dresses takes off for Paris with her college fund and a dream of becoming a jazz singer. An Italian countess becomes her benefactor, she wows the crowds in crazy cabaret clubs and finds herself underground jazz venues before her music wins her fans around the world and a legendary producer invites her to L.A. to record her debut album.

Already lauded for her live shows and tipped by Interview, Nylon, People magazine and Marie Claire, Hailey is on a mission to turn jazz on its head. Junk, her spectacular debut album for Sony, is infused with her powerhouse personality, her love of the dark side of life and her carefree approach to convention. Produced by the multi Grammy Award winning Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock, Melody Gardot) and featuring songs by artists as diverse as Leonard Cohen, Pulp, The Kinks and Paul McCartney, Junk is as playful as it is provocative, as witty as it is world-weary, as tailor-made for good times as it is for tears.

Hailey Tuck - Alcohol (Official Video)

Austin born, Paris based 27 year old singer Hailey Tuck is an extraordinary talent. Her debut Silvertone album ‘Junk', produced by the legendary Larry Klein, is a 12 track masterclass in evocative, effortless, totally sublime singing. Hailey joyously rips up the rulebooks turning jazz on its head by putting her own spin on songs by artists as diverse as Leonard Cohen (They Don't Make It Junk), Ray Davies (Alcohol) and Paul McCartney (Junk). Classics from Cabaret and Leonard Bernstein rub shoulders with brand new songs. All are totally and literally addictive.
