HALEY PHARO @ THE HOTEL CAFE

Haley Pharo

At 25 years old, singer-songwriter Haley Pharo has already sang with some of the biggest names in music today - Demi Lovato, Ryan Cabrera and Will.i.Am.  She even sang back up vocals of Michael Jackson.  Now, after collaborating with some of the biggest names in the music industry, Pharo is releasing her debut album.  

With her new record, released on Haywire Records and produced and mixed by multi-Grammy Award winning Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, John Legend, Beyonce), Pharo is ready to step out of the shadows and live the life she dreamed for herself  when she was seven years old.

Last week, Pharo performed at The Hotel Cafe, celebrating  the release of her self-titled debut album. This isn't your typical bubblegum-pop.  She has some of the most sought after producers in the industry backing her.  With  King Logan (Timbaland) and David Palmer (ABC, The The, Rod Stewart)  lending their talents, it's obvious that Haley is swinging for the fences on her debut. 

From the bouncy, Kelly Clarkson-esque "Waiting On You" to her heartfelt ballad "Your Darling," her songs tells a story that doesn't sound like she's pandering to us. You can tell she's lived every single note she sings  - her vocal arsenal seemlesly going from pain and heartbreak ("Prisoner" and "Missing") to lust and conficence ("Con Artist" and "Identity") in a pop beat which is why Pharo's debut is so relatable.   

Check out her first single "Con Artist" below.
