Hayley Grace & The Bay Collective to bring the 'High Vibes' on EP Tour - playing Solbar June 15
In celebration of the launch of their debut EP, High Vibes, Hayley Grace & The Bay Collective are going on tour.
Hayley Grace is an Australian multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter with an unmistakably soulful sound. She has an incredibly diverse range of global experience under her belt, touring extensively around the world. She has graced the stage of Bluesfest, Splendour in the Grass and toured with icons like UB40, Phil Emmanuel and Darren Middleton (Powderfinger).
After spending the previous eight years touring Australia and internationally, Hayley created The Bay Collective in 2017 during an epic jam session on the back deck of her property overlooking the farmlands behind Byron Bay. The Bay Collective is a raucous six-piece band, featuring some of the region’s most prominent vocalists and multi-instrumental talents.
Led by Hayley, the collective live shows are loud, fun, cheeky and overflowing with energy. You feel this band when they walk on stage. Their energetic performances feature a full horn section, guitar, vocals and percussion, for an eclectic mix of styles that embody the spirit of 60s and 70s funk and soul, with lashings of reggae and hip hop.
After being invited to play at the world famous Byron Bay Bluesfest in 2018, the band clocked up an impressive run of gigs and residencies up and down the east coast of Australia in their first year. They spent the summer of 2019 playing gigs and recording their debut EP, High Vibes, and are ready to hit the road to launch it this winter.
Hayley Grace is a powerhouse performer and with The Bay Collective behind her she shows no signs of slowing down any time soon (or ever). Catch them on the dance floor at the following Sunshine Coast locations with some of the best local bands out -
