Australia Day 2007 Concert Comments
“With a voice reminiscent of Sarah Vaughan, Shelley Hayton is passionate, cheeky, humorous and, most of all, adorable on stage.” Linda Wood ~Singer/Songwriter
“I was really impressed by the other night. First of all, what a cozy little venue! I was happy to hear such a great program and some wonderful songs for you. You were able to really put a lot of emotional and musical detail into the songs and make them your own… I had a fabulous time and the singing and the patter was eloquent, classy and warm and friendly. I feel that I could bring all my friends and family along.” Kerry Nicholson ~ Opera Singer
“Your artistry with every song was so natural and every move just right for what you were singing. You have majestic presence. I don’t think you should worry about your “size”- it is all was part of your magnificence. Wow, I’d go anywhere to here you anytime. I keep thinking of other places you could sing. It’s just not right that many, many others don’t get to see you perform. This must change. ~ Barbara Wood
“On Australia Day 2007 I went to Bar Me in Kings Cross and was part of an audience who were witnesses to the most natural, warm, pure voices I have ever heard. That was the voice of Shelley Hayton, a magnificent performance of jazz and cabaret music. I was enchanted by the pure timbre of Shelley’s voice and the interpretation of each song she sang. All I can say is that it left me with spine-tingling experience of the very essence and spirit of music. A song for everyone’s heart.” Vanessa Sue Cottle
“Shelley Hayton is a breath of fresh air, her voice is strong and passionate and her stage presence honest and real allowing her audience to connect to her beautiful journey of both voice and life. Shelley I choked! As soon as I had to write I was like but but… how do I put how I felt about her into words! So… I started writing about how I spent most of the night trying to pick my jaw up off the floor but that didn’t sound very professional…” Jane Wormald.
” It’s the first time I’ve heard you perform. Awesome.” Ian and Fiona Fisher ~ performer and vocal coach.
