Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Haley Blais started developing a community and fanbase as a teenager almost a decade ago with her diaristic YouTube videos and tender ukulele covers. Since then, Blais, who sang classical opera for ten years, traded in the solo ukulele for a guitar and a five-piece band. In 2020, Blais released a debut full-length album of jangly pop anthems, Below the Salt, produced with indie staples Tennis and Louise Burns, featuring the vocally powerful, complex slow-burn favorite "Be Your Own Muse." The self-released Below the Salt amassed millions of streams and avid support from publications like NPR, NYLON, and i-D and led to a North American tour with Peach Pit and headline tours throughout North America, Europe, and the UK.

Now signed to iconic indie label Arts & Crafts, Blais released her sophomore record Wisecrack in the fall of 2023. Conceived as a conceptual piece about the formation of new families amidst the dissolution of her parents' relationship, Wisecrack is more mature, confessional, focused, and darker than anything Blais has yet produced.
