Edwina Hayes

Edwina Hayes' beautifully written songs, charming stage presence and voice of an angel have won her a reputation as a true natural talent of gentle folk-Americana. Hailed as 'the sweetest voice in England' by Nanci Griffith, Edwina has been touring extensively for almost twenty years - including performances at Glastonbury Festival and the Royal Albert Hall.

Whilst the title track of Edwina's second album, Pour Me a Drink, was covered by Griffith, it was Edwina's take on Randy Newman's Feels Like Home - as featured in the 2009 film My Sister's Keeper, starring Cameron Diaz and Alec Baldwin - from the same album that propelled her to wide acclaim, amassing in excess of 10 million YouTube plays.

The independent release followed the success of her Warner Brothers debut, Out on My Own - produced by Clive Gregson and John Wood, who had previously worked with Nick Drake, and featuring Dr Hook's Dennis Locorriere on guest vocals.

Alongside extensive touring throughout the UK, Edwina is often invited to guest on studio albums and support major artists around the world - including Jools Holland, Van Morrison, Fairport Convention, Nanci Griffith, Loudon Wainwright, Roger McGuinn, KT Tunstall and Gretchen Peters.
