Artist Biography

Hartley Hall is a modern traditional country songwriter. Her big personality and small town charm are genuinely American. Her unique marriage of humor and hard-knock morality create timeless song-story performances which enamour audiences of all ages and places. Hartley grew up in San Angelo, Texas and is currently based in Austin.

Stylistically her music is classic country with Texas and Hawaiian Swing influences. She's got a couple hours worth of original songs with more on the way all the time. She knows plenty of cover songs from Ernest Tubb and Kitty Wells to Brooks & Dunn and Leann Rimes. Her writing style is inspired by Loretta Lynn and she's got tasteful humor like Garrison Keillor. Her stage presence and vocal delivery are often compared to Dolly Parton.




"Hartley Hall sounds like Loretta Lynn fronting Bob Wills' band, the Texas Playboys, playing lively numbers that drive away drowsiness so you won't fall Asleep at the Wheel."
