Each release has charted higher than the previous, with her most recent summer hit ͚Summertime Soundtrack͛ reaching #4 in the KIX Top 20 (Australia͛s Biggest Commercial Country Music Radio Network – 60+ Stations). With her current single still on the rise, Hayley is set to release a new single, an ultimate party track ͚Saturday Night͛ in March 2018.  Along with the growing success of her music, the year has also seen an influx of new fans connecting with Hayley via social media, with online numbers quadrupling across major digital platforms. After stellar performances on the festival circuit, Hayley has just signed a deal with Social Family Records for the release of her brand new album. The record is due for release in May 2018, produced by Grammy Award winning producer Jamie Tate in Nashville (USA).
