Hailey Knox’s “Bittersweet, Poetic Confessional” Gets Cinematic Reimagining in New Music Video“Hardwired” Video Out Today; Debut Headlining Tour Kicks Off Tonight
Coinciding with the first date of her debut headlining tour, today “music sensation” (People) Hailey Knox has dropped the all-too-relatable music video for her song “Hardwired”. Co-starring Cameron Boyce (from Disney’s “Descendants”) and shot at the YouTube Space in NYC, the video for “Hardwired” captures the lyrical content of the song, highlighting the isolated, disconnected growing pains of a young woman trying to find her voice: a somber Hailey sits at a diner with friends and imagines herself breaking out her introversion, finally feeling free to express herself.
Conceptualized in her bedroom and written on a hotel floor, “Hardwired” is one of Hailey’s most personal songs in her already impressive catalog of work. “I feel like I’m singing the notes jotted down in my journal” Hailey shared with Ladygunn who premiered the video today, while Sirius XM’s “The Coffee House” also recently added the song to their rotation. The track will also be a part of an upcoming Acoustic Cafe session.
The “bittersweet, poetic confessional” (Atwood) is the title track off of her recently released ‘Hardwired Mixtape’, a “soulfully infectious” (Brightest Young Things) collection of professionally recorded tracks, short voice memos, and demo-like looping snippets that showcase an artist with songwriting chops wise-beyond-years, and an unforgettable live performance where Hailey has the “ability to create a symphony of sounds with just her voice, a guitar and a looping pedal” (Earmilk).
Her headlining tour, which starts today in Philadelphia, will stop in 14 cities including New York City, Washington, D.C., Boston, Chicago, and Nashville. The tour follows a recent performance at SUNDANCE as part of the BMI “Snowball” showcase. Hailey promoted that appearance by performing on local morning shows Good Day Utah (KSTU) and Salt Lake City Fresh Living (KUTV).
