Haley Faye Rosenthal
Haley’s sound can best be described as a mix of indie/pop with hints of musical theatre influence. With a range of topics from heart break to mental health struggles, the general theme of Haley’s music revolves around the art of survival. At 16, she nearly died from Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, a rare disease she got due to what is believed to be caused by medical negligence. During her treatment she was told she wouldn’t be able to perform again. Instead of accepting what the doctors said, She looked at them and said, “watch me”. Her disease has never stopped her from working towards her dreams. “When people think of me, I don’t want them to think of me as just an SJS survivor. I want to use my music to raise awareness for chronic illnesses and people like me who were told they can’t achieve their dreams. I want to show them that anything is possible.
