Songwriter HAYLEY REARDON Finds The “Good” in Herself (The Daily Times)

Acclaimed singer-songwriter Hayley Reardon recently chatted with Steve Wildsmith at The Daily Times in Maryville, TN  to preview her show at Open Chord Music in nearby Knoxville.

Among the things they discussed was the classic novel “East of Eden,” in which John Steinbeck wrote, “And now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good,” a line which resonated so deeply that it inspired the title of the new album, Good.


She also touches on her influences, “My whole life, our parents raised us on singer-songwriters, from Jackson Browne to Van Morrison, and later on I really got into Patty Griffin and Gillian Welch and more contemporary singer-songwriters in the Americana world.”

It’s an engaging glimpse at one of the bright young stars of her generation. Head over to The Daily Times to read the rest.

The first time I saw this painting, it took my breath away. Its vivid color and depth of texture is pure poetry. It’s extraordinary. My niece painted it two years ago when she was 11. She looked at a blank canvas and then effortlessly created everlasting beauty with grace and elegance. She sees the world with boundless enthusiasm and wants to make it a better place. It’s inspiring. She’s so smart and talented, I know she’ll continue to accomplish whatever goals she sets. I’m so proud of her. She’ll always have my support and if I can help her in any way, I will. She never ceases to amaze me and I can’t wait to see what she creates next and I can’t wait to see all of her dreams come true.❤️ L O V E ❤️ A L W A Y S
