HALLEY GREG – AMERICAN HARLOT is at Top 200 Radio Now!!!

Halley Greg is a Seattle artist who found me via a mutual friend, but then we had to put this campaign we were planning on hold for a few months – because she got onto The Voice! Yeah, the reality singing competition show! She clearly DOES have the pipes to go the distance, so it’s no surprise she landed a spot on Team Kelly, but she’s also full of indie rock bona fides, with this album giving off big burlesque show vibes IMO (sex/queer sexuality positivity, sometimes a bit vampy about it even) among other things, so it’s not time to write her off if you ignore mainstream pop music (which tbh I largely do myself). Her RIYL comparison points are Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, Sharon Van Etten, Sara Bareilles, & Amanda Palmer, all of which I think will make sense to you when you give this thing a spin. How FCC-friendly it is depends a bit on whether your listeners can handle “Damn” and “Goddamn” so keep an eye on that FCC warning where I did carefully spell that out for ya!

HALLEY GREG

AMERICAN HARLOT

Self-Released

Halley Greg is a 29-year-old pop rock singer-songwriter who, since entering the Seattle music scene in 2019, has quickly picked up steam and gained a devoted following, even through the pandemic. After years of suffering from crippling stage fright and hiding herself in choirs and as a backup singer, she eventually built up the confidence to start writing and sharing her own music, and in a mere nine months went from playing at her first open mic to forming a band, recording an album, and selling out her first headlining show. 
 
In January of 2020, she had so much music momentum going that she decided to resign from her day job of teaching high school science (albeit with the plan of finishing out the school year). Of course, two months later COVID-19 hit and the music scene disappeared, but shortly thereafter she was contacted by a recruiter for NBC’s The Voice, and ended up getting a blind audition in Season 20 (currently airing) and landing a spot on Team Kelly.  Greg’s music has been called “the love child of Katy Perry and Joan Jett,” with some songs setting up light-hearted indie pop vibes and others delving much more into deep dark blues rock territory.  Decidedly lyric-driven and intentionally sassy, she paints a picture of feminist empowerment, exploring non-traditional relationship narratives and poking repeatedly at the patriarchal and puritanical roots of American society. 
 
She is currently in the process of recording an EP and a second full studio album, the former set to be released this summer and the latter by the end of 2021.
