In Haley Osier’s first full-length album I Wrote This For You, the singer/songwriter from Grapevine, Texas, is successfully joining the ranks of several Lonestar upstarts who have (to the listening pleasure of music lovers) navigated the waters of pop and country without relinquishing her songwriting gravitas.
Haley’s 10-song debut is filled with her own original tunes exploring the inner workings of what it’s like to be vulnerable and real in this modern age. Youthful trailblazing songstresses such as Ms. Taylor Swift, whose moniker makes a cheeky appearance in her current single, have embedded their influence into Osier’s spirited forthright lyrics. However, with an altogether different perspective and her own stories to yield, Haley is anything but a knockoff.
Some might say for a singer/songwriter who’s merely edging into her twenties, she’s encroaching upon veteran status. With her hooks firmly planted into the Southern belt cinched around the music hubs of Dallas and Nashville, Haley is, after many years in the industry, unveiling herself from behind the musician advocacy curtain to reveal her own formidable skill set. Those skills have been formulated with precision with the help of producer Joseph Price.
I Wrote This For You is a glimpse into Haley’s life where she’s surrounded by friends, family, her deaf pug Pacey, and all of the strangers in between. It’s a peek inside a mind and heart that is incessantly growing with grace and fortitude while the vikings of this broken world pound on the door to enter. From her candor to her quirkiness and on into her love for pickles and all things yellow, Haley is inviting you into her circle. There’s always room for one more. Come as you are and stay awhile.
