Self deprecating humor being my own personal crutch, I can appreciate an artist that refers to herself as wearing ‘homeless lady clothes’. Her wardrobe notwithstanding, Hailey de Almeida, shows a great deal of promise in her first EP. Incredibly young and incredibly raw, there are a number of rough edges in the songwriting and arrangements that will need smoothed out, but there’s potential there. With increased production value to her videos, some added experience crafting her songs, and the right people around her, she’s a solid developmental prospect. But, give her a listen for yourself and see what you think.
