If anyone has any leads please message or call me! I really appreciate everyone who has reached out and shared my story so far ❤️ praying these things make their way back to us 🙏🙏🙏”

“This one especially hurts to hear about…Very sentimental”

Distinct looking guitars, if you see them please contact the Iowa City Police, any tips are appreciated.

Haley Reinhart Kicks off her “Off The Ground” Midwest Tour in Minneapolis, celebrates her birthday in Aurora

Haley Reinhart was in full form as she kicked off her long awaited tour in support of her new EP, “Off The Ground” at the Fine Line in Minneapolis MN. It was clear how much returning to the stage and seeing so many friendly faces in the crowd meant so much to an artist who told the crowd she had to cancel 3 tours due to the 2020 pandemic, and she didn’t disappoint. Haley was in fine vocal form, switching from ferocious grit, to elevated vocal heights as she performed songs off her new EP, as well as old favorites from her debut album “Listen Up!” a couple from 2nd album “Better” and her recent 2019 album, “Lo-Fi Soul”, even debuting her cover of a “Screaming Jay” Hawkins classic.

Haley even surprised fans with her rendition of a Jimi Hendrix classic, which she got to sing with her Dad, Harry, at the 2nd show of the tour in Aurora Illinois, where Haley got a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday from her hometown crowd at the Piazza

Haley Reinhart’s long awaited EP to drop on September 2nd ahead of her 2022 Midwest Tour

Haley Reinhart just announced a date for her Co-Vid delayed EP, “Off the Ground”, September 2, 2022. The EP was originally slated to drop in 2020 before those plans and Haley’s Tours of the US and Europe were scrapped due to a global pandemic. Further delays for the EP occurred as the EP’s Swedish producers Tingsek and Haley’s long time song writing partner, tour lead guitarist and friend, Anders Grahn were stuck in Sweden and much of the communication and collaboration had to occur long distance.

Haley has already released two tracks from the album ahead of it’s debut, “Roll the Dice” and “Off the Ground”, the latter track accompanied by a Robert Rodriguez short movie for the song.

Haley has added dates to the original line up to her upcoming 2022 Midwest Tour to support “Off the Ground”. Meet and Greet opportunities were also added to some dates. Check HaleyReinhart.com for updated information
