It’s easy to get lost in the motions of our day to day lives, and Hayley Wallis is here to remind us that life is about the little things with an easy-going R&B pop single “Not That Serious” – available now.

Hayley Willis takes the time to remind us that life isn’t as serious as we make it seem, encouraging listeners to practice self-care and forgiveness with ourselves.  Gentle nudges towards “forgetting our exes” and “drinking wine like it’s Friday” are perfect anecdotes for living in the moment, as opposed to worrying about the big picture.

 

“Not That Serious” is the official teaser for Hayley Wallis’ newest EP, Halulu, translating from her native tongue to mean “butterfly.” The project touches on messages of cathartic change and embracing our mental health, much of which “Not That Serious” hints at.

“I dug deep into my ability to be vulnerable in sharing some of these stories,” Hayley Wallis comments.

 

“Not everyone has the same journey – but within everyone’s journey there will be transformation and growth, so I hope that some of these songs resonate with people and make them feel something – whether that’s joy, comfort, or connection.”

 

Working alongside producer David Hodges throughout the Halulu EP, the two come together to create a rich story of stepping outside of one’s comfort zone to see the world from a different perspective. Wallis’ passion for storytelling coupled with a desire to leave a long-lasting positive impression on her listeners has put her in a position to make a powerful impact on those who need it most – all while showcasing her immense talent as an R&B pop singer.

Storytelling is deeply rooted in Wallis’ culture and bloodline, calling on its healing properties not only to tend to her own wounds but to help others. “Storytelling is ceremony; it’s special and it’s powerful,” she explains. “We are taught that words are powerful, so you want to make sure that every lyric you’re writing down carries good intention. With that being said, I really want to make every song and lyric in this upcoming EP count and hold meaning.”

Now based in Vancouver, Wallis began her musical journey at a young age singing for her family and community in a small, isolated island known as Klemtu, located in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia. Being part of the Kitasoo Xais Xais nation has ultimately shaped who Wallis is today, and helped her carve a path for where she is bravely steering her journey with her debut EP. She sings for herself, her children, and her people, and hopes to set an example that will empower the young generation of her community to pursue their dreams.
