-Kayley Hill Live "In The House"  (March 20, 2020)

Singing ever since she could speak, Kayley feels like music chose her and not the other way around. Her scope of musical inspiration starts with Brooks and Dunn, when their music prompted her to dance around the living room as a little girl, and spreads as far as Gershwin dared to venture with those melodies of his that she sang while at The Boston Conservatory. The time spent singing all the harmony lines to Relient K albums, snappping her fingers to Michael Buble, and wondering how Alison Krauss and Union Station could make music sound so good were all precious moments helping her to understand how she wanted to deliver her own sound. When listening to Kayley's music, you'll be able to sense the impact of rootsy bluegrass and rockabilly, you'll gather lyrics reflecting Dolly Parton and Miranda Lambert, and you will expereince a sassy yet inviting vocal that will leave you wanting more. 6:00pm-8:00pm at the Grinder House Coffee Shop on Main Street.
