It’s not everyday that you stumble upon a lyrical and musical goddess three hours deep into a Youtube binge, but apparently it does happen. I believe it was her tutorial on how not to cut bangs. Of course she made it look so good that I had to try it. I am still suffering from this decision.
Haley Blais is a Canadian-based musician that has blossomed into my favourite artist and now she will become yours. A marriage of folk, pop and occasional techno, her almost Angelic voice, yet loaded lyrics will have you spit out your morning coffee. Honestly, who would’ve thought a combination of Gen Y problems and an upbeat yet still mellow tempo would work, but thank God Haley did.
Both her lyrics and Youtube channel expose a raw, slightly unhinged girl. Despite the struggles she may be face off camera to be as transparent about her high and lows, Blais still expresses emotions that so many of us choose not to show. Her bravery and sarcastic, one-of-a-kind humour will make you waiting for her next upload, her next tour, and definitely her next EP.
To my absolute joy, her music is available on Spotify under ‘Haley Blais’ (if you didn’t already guess) and below you can find all you need to join her fan club.
