I could tell you where Birch, Texas, is but that would also require you to know where the other two towns are that surround it.
Let’s just say it’s not easy to find, which is appropriate because talent like Haley Cole is not easy to find either..
Haley was born into a family full of talent and grew up singing alongside her parents and 3 sisters. By the time she hit 16, she was equipped with a guitar and the determination to make a music career happen for herself. Inspired by the hard work of her blue collar family and instilled with the same ethic, Haley began performing anywhere she could find a microphone. Starting out at local venues, it wasn’t long before she found herself on well-known stages like Hurricane Harry’s, Dosey Doe’s, and the former Texas Hall of Fame; from large county fairs & rodeos, BBQ cook-offs, to upscale venues and restaurants, such as Steiner Ranch Steakhouse the Haley Cole Band has performed in just about every setting.
In her short time on the Texas Music Scene, Haley’s incredible voice and clever lyrics and composition has elevated her into performing with the biggest names in the industry such as Drew Womack, Adam Hood, Bart Crow, Ryan Beaver, Max Stalling, Brandon Rhyder, The Rankin Twins, Bri Bagwell, Jason Eady, Folk Family Revival, Jason Cassidy, and Micky and the Motorcars, Casey Donahew, and Kyle Park, just to name a few.
Haley’s kind heartedness, fun personality, and love for her fans leave a lasting impression on every stage she plays. Haley dreams of being the next Brandi Carlile, and has every ounce of talent needed to do so, but she is also very humble about her career in music. She says “If I make it, great, if not, at least I can say I gave it my all, but either way I will keep creating honest music for the fans I cherish as long as they continue to listen.”
Haley released her first professional project on February 22, 2013. The seven song self-titled EP, all originally written, is a cornucopia of Country, Americana, and folk with a touch of rock, blues and bluegrass flavors. Her album features Drew Womack, one of the biggest songwriters in country music, on the amazing track “Devil in Disguise” and look out for her forthcoming single “Satisfied” on a radio near you next month.
