Hailey Tuck’s story sounds like a far-fetched film script. A teenager from Texas with a bob borrowed from Louise Brooks and a suitcase stuffed full of vintage dresses takes off for Paris with her college fund and a dream of becoming a jazz singer.
An Italian countess becomes her benefactor, she wows the crowds in crazy cabaret clubs and finds herself at underground jazz venues before her music wins her fans around the world and a legendary producer invites her to L.A. to record her debut album.
As unlikely as that sounds, those are just the bare bones of Hailey’s tale. Throw in a Baptist military boarding school, a brush with a member of Maroon 5 and a chiselled tap dancer doing a Josephine Baker striptease and you’re still only scratching the surface.
Already lauded for her live shows and tipped by Interview, Nylon, People magazine and Marie Claire, Hailey is on a mission to turn jazz on its head. Junk, her spectacular debut album, is infused with her powerhouse personality, her love of the dark side of life and her carefree approach to convention…
