Mikalyn Hay

The Bio:

Mikalyn brings a powerful mix of youthful energy and optimism to her alternative-pop sound, grounded by lyrical flourishes that often bely a depth and maturity rarely found in someone so young. An artist in the truest sense of the word,
Mikayn’s creativity is a form of self-expression pouring over every note and word with the finesse and
attention to detail of a painter. Since she can remember she has desired nothing more than to write
songs and make music that is truly memorable and means something to the listener.

What others say:

“I have spent a little time with Mikalyn and was
immediately very impressed with her young talent
and sense of commitment to the challenges of
both songwriting and performing. She is not a
"copy cat” artist type, she has a very positive vision
about herself, her future and understands the
work ethic needed to grow.” – Don Grierson, A&R
Consultant, Los Angeles, CA

“I've watched Mikalyn perform at several events over the past year, while she was singing at SongStudio
and open-mics around Toronto. She is a natural songwriter and performer and very comfortable on
stage. A hard working artist who I believe has the talent and drive necessary to succeed in the music
industry. I am confident that we will all be hearing a lot more from this young talent from Guelph in the
near future”
Roger Beckett, Songwriter
Coordinator, Toronto Chapter - Nashville Songwriters Association Intl (NSAI),
Coordinator, Toronto Regional Writers Group - Songwriters Association of Canada (SAC)

“I've written songs and recorded vocals with some of the best in the country. Mikalyn is just so beyond
her years talent wise, it's mind boggling. On the spot harmonies, quick to follow producer comments
and adjustments, an amazing pitch and all the while always keeping her natural vocal tone and
incorporating her personal flavour in every take. She's got raw talent you can't teach or learn and she's a
pro. Undoubtedly a songwriter / producer's dream to work with who is bringing real game to the table
every single session.” – Bobby John, Montreal, Singer Songwriter

What Oli says:

Mikalyn sings some really amazing songs. Her songs have this soft nice touch! You can't get enough of listening to her. What really impressive is her numbers of song. At this young age she has already created so many amazing songs! And to be fair you can't just pick out one song as favorite, they are all just amazing! Really looking forward to hear more of Mikalyn!
