Before she graduated from West Linn High School in 2008, Hailey Niswanger was already well on her way to a spectacular career as a professional musician.
In fact, Hailey’s gift was apparent to everyone within earshot when she played her first notes on a clarinet at the age of eight.
Now 25, Hailey lives in Brooklyn, New York and already has an extraordinary list of professional accomplishments.
She also is about to release a new album “PDX Soul,” (her third CD) and is a headliner at the Portland Jazz Festival on Friday, February 27, 2015. Hailey will be playing her “favorite club” Jimmy Mak’s at 8:00 p.m.
Hailey stopped by PRP to talk live with Robert Parish and Sarah Billings on Wednesday, February 26, 2015. She also played a new composition and previewed three tracks from her yet-to-be-released album.
