Elise Hayes
Elise Hayes has found success writing songs featured on numerous TV shows, such as ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy”, Freeform’s “The Bold Type”, MTV’s “Siesta Key,” and many more.  She has written songs for other prominent artists as well as being known as a backing singer from some of today's largest acts including Carly Pearce on the Blake Shelton tour.
Haunting. Powerful. Uplifting. These are three words that describe Elise Hayes’ music. Combining infectious pop and R&B melodies with heartfelt and meaningful subject matter, Elise’s songs live in a unique space in the palate of today’s popular music.
No stranger to the stage, Elise Hayes has performed since the age of 12. She attended the esteemed Berkeley College of Music as a vocal major, and soon after graduating, relocated to Nashville to pursue a career as an artist and songwriter. “My journey in the music industry hasn’t been a straight line to success,” she says, “I have had to bend and mold and create my own opportunities.” She certainly has done just that.
The talented singer/songwriter has further written songs for other prominent artists (Lucie Silvas “E.G.O”, Jill Andrews “Rust or Gold”), and most recently, toured the country as a background singer and keyboard player for country star, Carly Pearce, opening national tours for Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, and Thomas Rhett.
During her time on the road, Elise felt inspired to find her way back to her own music and career as an artist. “I think I had been in Nashville too long, churning it out behind the scenes in the industry,” she says, “Having the opportunity to get out into the world and see how powerful music is and how it can bring people together in such a moving way made me fall back in love with performing. It lit me up again.”
