Heather Haley is a Vancouver writer, singer, and videopoetry pioneer. A member of the punk band, the 45s, and the originator of the all-female group, the Zellots, Haley’s edgy style stems in part, from experiences in the vibrant underground music scene of Los Angeles.

Renowned for her innovative approach, Haley has consistently pushed the boundaries of creativity by seamlessly integrating various disciplines, genres, and media. Notably, she established “The Edgewise Café,” one of Canada’s pioneering electronic literary magazines. As AURAL Heather, she has released critically acclaimed CDs of spoken word songs, including “Princess Nut” and “Surfing Season.”

Haley is the author of several poetry collections, including Sideways, Three Blocks West of Wonderland, and Skookum Raven, as well as the novel, The Town Slut’s Daughter. Her work has been featured in numerous publications and anthologies, and she has toured extensively across Canada, the United States, and Europe.

Committed to craft, authenticity, emotional depth, and a keen sense of the absurd, Haley fearlessly tackles the tough questions that society often shies away from and currently charms audiences as part of the indie folk/rock duo, The Pluviophiles.

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
