With her beguiling vocals and powerful delivery, Haley Reinhart brings both raw passion and soulful sincerity to all her musical output. A 26-year-old singer/songwriter with timeless sensibilities, she began honing her formidable vocal chops by singing with her parents’ band at age seven. In recent years Reinhart earned a gold certification in the U.S. for her breathtaking rendition of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and has emerged as the leading artist on Postmodern Jukebox (a YouTube-based rotating music collective). Also a burgeoning voice actor and co-star of the Netflix original animated series F Is for Family, Reinhart is now set to make her Concord Records debut on September 22, 2017 with What’s That Sound?—an ambitious and masterfully realized album combining original tracks with covers of iconic songs from the late 1960s.
Originally from the Chicago area, Reinhart was born into a musical family with a deep love of rock-and-roll, funk, jazz, classic pop, and the blues. In her early childhood, she started joining her parents’ rock band Midnight onstage and quickly found herself hooked on performing. “One memory that stands out is my golden birthday, when I turned nine on September 9, 1999,” says Reinhart. “My parents were playing a tattoo convention and there were all these tough-looking people and biker dudes there, and I got up to sing a LeAnn Rimes song with my hair in little Princess Leia buns. But then once I started singing it got so quiet and the tattoo machines all went off—everyone was listening to me. I was so overcome by it, I cried right afterward, but they were happy tears. I just thought to myself, ‘This is amazing.’”
Proving the singular scope of her talent, Reinhart also recently wrapped up the second season of F Is for Family. Produced by Bill Burr, Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsly, and Michael Price, the show features Reinhart as a little boy named Bill growing up in the Pennsylvania suburbs in the mid-’70s. “The show completely fell into my lap, but it’s a total timepiece and fits perfectly with everything else I’m doing,” says Reinhart. With its second season premiering on May 30, F Is for Family also stars Laura Dern, Justin Long, and Sam Rockwell.
Thanks to all her eclectic endeavors in music and acting, Reinhart has massively expanded her devoted fanbase (or “Haliens”) and now boasts 383k+ Facebook likes, 204k+ Twitter followers, and 102k+ Instagram followers, as well as over 3.8 million Vevo views and more than 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify. In addition to collaborating with legendary musicians across many genres (including Tony Bennett, Slash, David Foster, and Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra), she’s brought her spirited live performance to festivals such as Lollapalooza and the New Orleans Jazz Fest. Having completed her first solo headlining tour of the U.S. in June 2016, Reinhart recently wrapped up her first solo headlining international tour, visiting seven countries across Europe.
