POET SONGBIRD MEDIA ARTIST
Heather Haley’s creative nature gives her an explorer’s life. With roots in Quebec and northern New Brunswick, she was drawing, singing and composing songs and stories from a tender age.
Haley pushes boundaries by creatively integrating disciplines, genres and media. She’s directed numerous videopoems, official selections at dozens of international film festivals. Renowned as an engaging performer, Haley has toured Canada, the U.S and Europe in support of two critically acclaimed AURAL Heather CDs of spoken word song, Princess Nut and Surfing Season. Her verse has appeared in a variety of journals and she is the author of poetry collections Sideways (Anvil Press), Three Blocks West of Wonderland, Skookum Raven (Ekstasis Editions) and debut novel, The Town Slut’s Daughter (Howe Sound Publishing), currently being adapted to the stage.
“Haley has the gift of writing to suit her subject in all its raddled variety, from wired and jarring to lyrical and tragic.”-Vancouver Sun
