THE HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL SOUNDS OF HAYLEY COUPON

If Fiona Apple and Regina Spektor had a lovechild, it would be Hayley Coupon.

Based in Brooklyn, the self-taught pianist’s last EP, Do The Right Thing, Like You Said You Wouldwas a soft, jazzy and beautiful piece of music. Coupon manages to get a melancholy and energetic tone to blend in a very profound way that makes the listener feel something incredible. Although her ingenious mix of sound is definitely one of her strong suits, its the power of her voice that is makes her a force to be reckoned with.

Coupon’s 2013 effort, Remembrance, garnered an initial small following that continues to grow. My personal favorite off of Remembrance is “Let Me Be,” a tender and blue ballad that would be the perfect addition to the 500 Days of Summer Soundtrack, had the song been released in 2009. According to a Facebook post on her page from October, Coupon is currently working on a new album. We will definitely be on the lookout for that this year.

Coupon’s music is quiet and melancholy, perfect for dark winter days spent indoors with a cup of tea and your favorite book.  Her last EP consists of four chill tracks that will appeal to fans of Remembrance, including the mellow “All or Nothing.”  If you’re in the market for some new music to vibe out to, be sure to check out Hayley Coupon.
