"New" Artist of the Month June 2017


recalls singer, songwriter, director, artist, and actress Hayley Kiyoko. “It happened. If you focus and have realistic goals, you can get where you want to be. That’s still what I do to this day. I like to joke that it might be a magic journal though!”

Magic or no magic, Hayley’s diligence, dedication, and dynamic artistry enchanted countless listeners worldwide. She spent the prior year quietly instigating the most wonderful sort of pop disruption via her breakthrough independent single “Girls Like Girls” and critically acclaimed This Side of Paradise EP. 

“Girls Like Girls” resonated in a big way with its different depiction of young love, all-inclusive message, and entrancing, engaging, and ethereal melodies. The music video, written and co-directed by Hayley and Austin S. Winchell, garnered over 40 million YouTube views in just the span of a year and 10 million Spotify streams. Getting behind the camera again and starring this time, its follow-up “Cliff’s Edge” generated 12 million views in under six months. Along the way, she’s received critical praise with Billboard describing her enigmatic style as “Energetic, high-stakes pop music,” and US Magazine claiming she’s “giving a whole new meaning to pop anthems.” Simultaneously, she starred in CSI: Cyber , Insidious: Chapter 3, and the Netflix original movie, XOXO —among other film and television projects.
