Hayley Fahey, musician and singer-songwriter, returns to her hometown roots to celebrate the release of her latest EP with a concert Sunday, August 15, 2021, 6 PM, at Pearl Street Warehouse in Washington, D.C. The EP will be available the same day on all music platforms. At the beginning of 2020, she moved from Rockville, MD to Los Angeles, CA to take her songwriting to the next level. She is now located in Nashville, TN where she has been writing and performing. “This show is close to my heart, returning to the place I was born and grew up, first played shows, and called my home for over 20 years,” Hayley said. Her music is an evolution of her upbeat soulful-pop songs layered with a singer-songwriter twist, and genre-bending blues. She will be joined on-stage by a full band of top-notch musicians. Luke James Shaffer, a singer-songwriter known for his alternative Americana-folk-pop-soul style, and his band will kick off the night.
