From Pembrokeshire, West Wales, The Climb’s lead vocalist Hayley Carlyon (pronounced Car-Lion), has been Bucks based for the last few years. A singer and songwriter who pens some impressive and original material, Hayley weaves a powerful and soaring voice through raw, beautiful lyrics and unusual covers.
She toured the UK extensively as a solo artist, supporting a range of artists from Fyfe Dangerfield to Ben Somers as well as bluegrass favourites 'The Hot Rock Pilgrims', and has been a familiar, smiling face on the London bluegrass and Americana scene for many years. After spending over a decade in the big smoke, she moved to Buckinghamshire in 2018 to raise a family. The Climb is her first full band.
