Biography Christine Hayley's eclectic songwriting crosses many genres, mixing pop/adult contemporary with hints of blues, country and jazz. She is a versatile singer/songwriter, accompanying herself at the piano, where most of her writing takes place. A dynamic blend of sophistication, humor and style. Her songs evoke many emotions - love, longing, sadness and laughter. Yet, it is her limber, emotion-filled voice that many are drawn to, the way she is able to adapt her singing style to fit the subject. She smoothly moves from a sexy jazz vocal to groovin' blues to a country lilt to an angelic pop sound, all the while connecting with her listeners through personal lyrics. Christine writes and performs primarily at the piano. Her debut album Gone Fishin', produced by Emerald City Publishing and Rocco Blu Productions features stellar performances by numerous industry veterans including Richie Cannata, Peter J. Romano, Schuyler Deale, Bernard Davis, Scott Brown and Gerardo Velez.
