Hey there! My name is Haley Klinkhammer. Thank you for visiting my website! Here’s a little about who I am and how I got here.
I am a singer/songwriter from the good ol’ state of Wisconsin. I have been singing ever since I can remember and I’ve been playing the guitar since I was 13 years old. I began uploading videos of myself singing and playing guitar to covers of popular music to YouTube in 2007 when I was 14. I put my first video on YouTube as a way to share my music with friends on MySpace. I didn’t know much about YouTube at that point, but people started commenting and saying that they liked it and that I should upload more covers, so I did, and it turned into something so much more than I ever imagined it would.
Not long after that first video hit the YouTube, I started writing my own songs. After a few years of honing my songwriting skills, I released my first EP, Freedom, in 2011. It consists of four songs I wrote throughout my senior year in high school. In 2013, I released my second EP called Finding Myself and I just released my first full-length album From Where I Stand!
Since starting the guitar back in 7th grade, I have taught myself to play the ukulele and the piano, and one day I’d really love to learn to play the drums.
Here we are eight years since this all began and I still am constantly blown away by the amount of support my music has gotten from people around the world. I love, love, love being able to share covers and my original music with all of you and I love hearing about the impact that it has had on your lives.
Music has this incredible ability to speak to people no matter where you are or what your background is. To have the opportunity to write songs that people can relate to and that can even help people in tough times is such a huge blessing. I want everyone to know that they’re not alone. No matter what situation you’re in, there is someone who’s been there and who is willing to help.
