Haley & Michaels: Shannon Haley and Ryan Michaels, known as Haley & Michaels, are an award winning country duo based in Nashville, TN. Originally from the Bay Area, growing up just three miles apart, the duo met in Nashville through a mutual guitar player. Combining their two unique voices into one complete sound, the well-blended harmonies of Haley & Michaels is catching on fire and captivating music lovers across the country.
“We grew up just miles apart, but never met,” recalls Shannon. “I’m from Los Altos; he’s from Palo Alto. The dividing line—his high school—was in my back yard. We had a mutual friend try and connect us seven years prior, but we never connected until we met here in Nashville at the Frothy Monkey. A guitar player, that was in both of our solo bands, introduced us and thought our voices would work well together.”
Once they began to talk, they realized that the small world they were living in was actually a lot smaller. It turns out their greatest musical influences were identical – Garth Brooks and James Taylor.
Both Shannon and Ryan admit there’s something that is almost electric when the two combine their musical talents. “The first time we ever performed together was at The Roxy Theater in LA and it felt like we had been singing together our whole lives,” says Shannon. “Ryan’s powerful energy on stage was so contagious and I had never had so much fun performing before.”
