Hailey Knox’s “Bittersweet, Poetic Confessional” Gets Cinematic Reimagining in New Music Video

Coinciding with the first date of her debut headlining tour, today “music sensation” (People) Hailey Knox has dropped the all-too-relatable music video for her song “Hardwired”. Co-starring Cameron Boyce (from Disney’s “Descendants”) and shot at the YouTube Space in NYC, the video for “Hardwired” captures the lyrical content of the song, highlighting the isolated, disconnected growing pains of a young woman trying to find her voice: a somber Hailey sits at a diner with friends and imagines herself breaking out her introversion, finally feeling free to express herself.


Conceptualized in her bedroom and written on a hotel floor, “Hardwired” is one of Hailey’s most personal songs in her already impressive catalog of work. “I feel like I’m singing the notes jotted down in my journal” Hailey shared with Ladygunn who premiered the video today, while Sirius XM’s “The Coffee House” also recently added the song to their rotation. The track will also be a part of an upcoming Acoustic Cafe session.
