Though still a teen Hawley carries herself with the dignity and professionalism of a long time vocal veteran. You can hear this confidence in every song she produces, as they all radiate with a high-level of self-esteem and self-confidence. This is key because teenagers already have to go through so many hurdles just trying to grow up and be normal. They could use a voice that is singing for them and these songs fit right in to the very popular teen pop music genre. She has a classic yet unique sound which allows her to vocally reach an incredible range of notes that add a certain beauty to every song she puts her heart to.
Hawley is deeply inspired and influenced by Sandra Bullock, Adele, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Meghan Trainor, and Taylor Swift. However, her ultimate driving force is when someone tells her NO. To Hawley, that never means simply giving up, it means one should keep on going and live their dreams regardless of any challenges that come along the way. Both authentic and equally as outgoing, her main mission in life is to make people smile and feel a wide range of powerful emotions through the universal language of acting and music.
During her free time, Hawley Penfold enjoys reading good books, biking, gaming, volleyball and Western & English horse riding. Most of all, she loves spending time in the great outdoors. Hawley is also an avid animal lover.
“Maintaining positive, humble attitudes is a must, so we need to protect our good attitudes no matter what happens to our aspirations. When we are teens, our view is fresh and exciting. We need to preserve some of our youthfulness in our aspirations.”
