A big Texan g’day to you all !

What would you say to going a concert and hearing your song being sung by the artist performing? Well, WeLoveWords is giving you the opportunity today to create your own song by writing the lyrics for Hailey Tuck.

Hailey Tuck :

Born in Austin, Texas, today Hailey Tuck divides her time between London and Paris (when she’s not touring across the world). Hailey Tuck was raised under a strict diet of 1930s jazz, vintage dresses and black & white films. Her love for everything “old-school” spurred her to up sticks and move to Paris at the age of 18 in search of “la vie en rose”. Since her first EP dropped in April 2014, Hailey has toured in Europe and Asia and has completed over 40 concerts included sold-out performances at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, the Juu Jaab festival and the Umea Jazz Festival. Her 4 sold out performances at the legendary Duc des Lombards in Paris were broadcasted both on French jazz radio station TSF and on BBC Radio 2 and 6 in the United Kingdom. The songstress also opened for Jamie Cullum during his Paris show for the launch of his album at the legendary theatre La Cigale.
