Artist Spotlight: Hayley Kiyoko

11:59:00 AM

Discovering new music is my absolute favorite thing to do. Whether it's from my Discover Weekly playlist on Spotify or the opening performer at a show, finding a new singer or band that I love makes me feel like a kid on Christmas Day. 
To extend the same happy feeling to you, I'm going to be sharing some of my favorite people!
It may seem like the world doesn't need another pop star but when said star is an out and proud lesbian, I say, "keep 'em coming!"I first heard of 27-year-old Hayley Kiyoko when yep you guessed it, she was in the 2011 Disney Channel movie Lemonade Mouth. Now, I was 22 at the time and far too old for Disney but I adored that movie and instantly started crushing on the then 20-year-old.

Fast forward seven years and Hayley is dominating the music scene. She recently released her album Expectations and it's full of amazing pop tunes that I finally don't have to change the pronouns to — hooray!

She's currently on tour and will also be at this year's Shadow of the City festival (which I attend every year) put on by my dude Jack Antonoff and his band Bleachers (one of my favorites!). Not only that, Hayley is also opening for Panic! At The Disco this summer.

I urge you to check out my favorite songs from Hayley, "He'll Never Love You" and "Palm Dreams."
