ole’s Haley Reinhart Balances Recording Career With Growing Demand As Songwriter [Ole Newsletter]

As ole songwriter Haley Reinhart continues to write for her next album, the follow-up to her critically-acclaimed debut,Listen Up! (19 Entertainment/Interscope), which reached #17 on the Billboard Album chart, she is balancing the creation of her own material with the growing demand for her services as co-writer of songs for other artists. It’s a new but fulfilling experience for Reinhart.

“I’ve always been up for it – I have always said that I want to be a songwriter as much as an artist – but I definitely like to distinguish if a song is going to be for me or for somebody else because those are two different mindsets,” explains Reinhart, who signed a worldwide publishing deal with ole in early 2012. “At the last ole pop+urban songcamp in Los Angeles, we were writing for people like Rihanna and it was pretty much the first full week I have ever spent writing for somebody other than myself, which was really a blast. Thankfully everyone that I have worked with, including producers from my last album and new ones introduced to me by ole, are all very open-minded and give me a lot of creative control. I want to be more and more involved with each session I do. I feel thankful that the people I’m working with are very open to that.”

Reinhart co-wrote all of the songs but one on her first album, Listen Up! Her performance on the record was frequently characterized as “authentic” and “distinctive” by critics. “I had to make the first album very quickly so I had in my head what I wanted it to sound like. Even though I worked with a variety of producers, there was a consistency to it. But this time I have time to go wild so I’m basically letting the producers do what they want creatively for the most part. If I know that they’re in a different niche than I am, I let them do their thing because nothing is set in stone yet, but I write what I want to write.”

Reinhart demonstrated a musical talent from a very early age. By the age of eight, she was writing poetry and singing and, at the age of nine, she entertained a large crowd at a Chicago tattoo convention. By the time she was attending Wheeling High School in Wheeling, Illinois, she had earned herself a place in her parents’ ‘60s/’70s rock song cover band, Midnight. After graduating in 2009, she began studying jazz at nearby Harper College in Palatine, Illinois, singing in the jazz band which performed at festivals in Switzerland (Montreux Jazz Festival) and Italy.

“Growing up with a lot of different genres of music has really paid off for me because I know at least a little bit of everything and like most of it,” says Reinhart. “I certainly think I can put my own spin on whatever genre I work in.”

There is no date-certain for the completion or release of Reinhart’s sophomore album. “It was so strange for me to not put out another record within six months of the last one,” Reinhart states. “My manager told me not to worry about production or about making everything fit together quite yet, just write great songs, so I took that advice. At this point, I’ve written so much that there’s a really solid group of songs that I would love to put on the album. It’s just a matter of tying it all together production-wise. I’m really tapping into a lot of new things, even things like ballads, which I wasn’t too hip on before – emotional type stuff and these epic, motivational songs. I’m really excited to be able to evolve. I think that’s so important for any artist.”

Adds Reinhart, who has been a regular presence at the ole songcamps in places like West Hollywood, California; Santorini, Greece and, most recently, Virginia Beach, Virginia for the ole-bluestone camp at Timbaland’s Thomas Crown studio complex: “It’s really important to know that Chad [Richardson] and Debra [Delshad] and Julie [Moe] – everybody at ole – are behind me. They’ve given me the utmost respect and it just makes me so happy to be with a team like that. Being with them, the writers and producers now, it feels less of just a team but more like a family. ole and I have had a lot of success over the past year and I’m excited to see what happens next.”

The ole-bluestone Songcamp, held last month at Timbaland’s Thomas Crown Studio complex in Virginia Beach, Virginia, produced 13 cuts from the 10 songwriters in attendance. ole-bluestone is the co-venture struck in the summer between iconic super-producer Timbaland and ole. Participating ole writers included Haley Reinhart, Clare Reynolds, Allison Kaplan and Mynority, who were joined by Virginia songwriters David Bollman, Kelly Bollman, Matt Osborn and Stephen Lee of ReKapse, a group signed to Timbaland’s label, along with top-liner Satasha Torres and producer Velly.

Comments Richardson: “It was a fantastic experience and we got 13 new songs from the camp – 12, plus an extra one that Clare Reynolds wrote. With the band ReKapse, we had two of the guys in as producers and the other two guys as top liners and they did really well. With the ole writers, one could have argued that they might have been burnt out after the olepop+urban songcamp in L.A. but it was actually just the opposite. It was like a runner in training. I remember saying on day-one to the writers as we listened to the songs, ‘Wow guys, those are day-three songs!’ Normally it takes a few days for everyone to really get into it. Also, Debra came and she did a Synchronization and Licensing brief, which was invaluable.”

So, perhaps these two become a professional duo? They’re already joined at the hip. He’s a talented creative goofball, she’s just flat out for real. Her voice is over the top good. Of course, they are Casey Abrams and Haley Reinhart.

They turn a song that I typically don’t care for, into something I actually really like! This is really good. That song is “Sail” by Awolnation

This tweet from her former 19e manager Chiara Kramer, who is now with Vector/Boardwalk management working with ZZ Ward among others, generated a lot of interest:

and Haley’s response:

and her response to fans:

A possible speculation is that a song or her long promised EP may be appearing soon.   But it could be just about anything including a label signing, move from 19e, etc.

Also, an allusion to a song from a frequent songwriting collaborator:

Haley got a nice little writeup on the New York Times.

A Hot Duet for Those Cold Nights

But the version I’m featuring is by one of my favorite new artists, Haley Reinhart, who placed third in the 10th season of “American Idol” (performed with Casey Abrams, a finalist that same season). Ms. Reinhart, whose debut album “Listen Up”came out last year, was raised on 1960s and ‘70s rock, played in her parents’ band, studied jazz in college and blew the socks off the crowd at Lollapalooza two years ago (with her dad on guitar). This is one versatile young woman, as you’ll see from this other cover and two originals.
