Hailey Knox’s ‘A Little Awkward’ out TODAY on S-Curve

17-year-old Hailey Knox’s debut EP ‘A Little Awkward’ is out today on S-Curve Records, marking a transition from online viral phenom to a bonafide recording artist that Idolator calls “one of 2016’s most exciting newcomers.”

‘A Little Awkward’ is the first look at an artist who balances razor sharp Gen-Z songwriting with serious vocal/guitar-playing chops, an organic charm, and a remarkable live performance that showcases her ability to build a tapestry of sound on-stage with just her voice, six-string and loop pedals.

The new EP candidly touches on topics of body image issues (“My Worst Enemy”), being stalked online by her parents (“Awkward”), and not being a member of the “cool kid group” on first single “Geeks” which Meghan Trainor said she’s “obsessed” with and Idolator called “the new anthem for outsiders and the defiantly uncool.”

Her sharply intelligent yet playful songwriting style shines on tracks like “Loopty Loop” which features Hailey’s slinking vocals and sly pop culture references ranging from DeBarge to Jean-Michel Basquiat to “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
