She has also been involved in various showcases around Perth and has competed in eisteddfods. She has sung in prestigious venues including the Grand Ballroom at Crown Perth and the Perth Concert Hall. Not only has Hayley been involved in productions, but community events also make up her performance experience. She has sung various solo and choir performances at The Vale Christmas carols, has been involved in busking around Fremantle for leisure and to raise money for cancer. Hayley has previously received a vocal scholarship to Swan Valley Anglican Community School and various awards in performing arts. Hayley recently graduated from school and was quickly accepted into Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts to study Contemporary Vocals. Towards the end of 2012, she recorded her first original song, 'I Still,' which is to be released on iTunes on the 7th January, 2013. Accompanying the release of this track, her first official music video is to be released in January 2013.
