When you listen to 15-year-old folk singer Hayley Reardon, it’s hard to identify what’s more impressive: the fact that she’s already considered a seasoned folk artist or that she’s a national spokesperson for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. In any event, both are laudable facts that dovetail nicely on her debut album Where The Artists Go. Growing up in the fertile and storied folk scene in Cambridge, Massachusetts, it’s obvious that she’s been picking up and applying all of the best tips her elders have to offer. While she has a voice and playing ability that suggest someone much older, she writes about issues that are important to younger people, and recognizes her opportunity to make a difference with her music. The title track offers a nice summary of Reardon’s mature philosophy. “The song is about breaking rules and being passionate, bold, and original,” said Reardon “It’s about being proud of all of those things and letting them shine through.” Where The Artists Go is out October 23 on Kingswood Records.
