Leveraging Doing with Hailey Steele

Deb SoholtBlog, Influential She Podcast

This episode features the High Leverage Practice of Doing with Hailey Steele. As a singer/songwriter, she began massive ‘doing’ at a very young age. Sharing “I’m a go-getter, a chaser, a pursuer, a doer and will always stand up for myself”, Hailey talks about how hard and painful it can be to get going when others try to hold you back. This not-to-miss podcast – with a surprise at the end – will inspire you to quiet the “committee in your head”, and get busy doing.

Hailey Steele was raised in a no-stoplight town in South Dakota. She started performing at an early age, sharing stages with country legends like Willie Nelson and Loretta Lynn all before the age of 15. Her melodies are strongly influenced by female country and pop music from the 90’s, and her lyrics tackle daily topics that every girl and woman deals with – love, heartbreak, happiness, reality, and wine.

Steele moved to Nashville at 19 to pursue a serious music career and has never looked back. As an alum of NBC’s The Voice (Team Xtina, season 2), she got to perform on the last season of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno with her duo The LiNE. Steele co-wrote”Boyfriend,” (Raelynn/Nicolle Galyon/ Steele) and “Small Town Soul” released by Gwen Sebastian.

Steele’s first solo single, “Where I Thought I’d Be” was featured on CMT as part of the Artist Discovery Program. Hailey has opened several shows for Kelsea Ballerini and is the youngest member of the South Dakota Country Music Hall of Fame. Most recently she co-wrote and released “Livewire”, a song that tackles mental illness and abuse. She has appeared on the Grand Ole Opry stage with her friend Shelly Fairchild, performing their original “On The Highway”. The music video for her newest release, Raggedy Ann, is the current Next Up Now feature on Country Music Television and is available on CMT.com. www.haileysteele.com
