Born in Western Massachusetts, Hailey Brinnel is now a staple in the Philadelphia jazz scene. A trombonist, vocalist, and educator, she began performing throughout New England with her father Dave Brinnel at age 12.
In 2021, Brinnel was a finalist in the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition and the following year was featured on Spotify's 'Best Vocal Jazz of 2022' editorial playlist. She is a B.A.C. Musical Instruments Performing Artist and a signed artist on the New York based Outside in Music record label. Additionally, she is currently on faculty at The University of the Arts and The Kimmel Center, and works as a guest clinician to bring jazz education to classrooms throughout the city. She was also a featured clinician in the 2020 National Jazz Conference with her workshop A Melodic Approach to Scat Singing.
Brinnel has performed at venues around the world, having played with artists such as The Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, The Philly Pops, Sherrie Maricle and the DIVA Jazz Orchestra, Ingrid Jensen, Anat Cohen, Tony Glausi, Haley Reinhart, Camille Thurman and Pell. In addition, she’s shared the stage with Maurice Hines and The DIVA Jazz Orchestra as part of the national tour of the Hines' off-Broadway production "Tappin' Thru Life". Hailey Brinnel's performance highlights include prestigious venues such as Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, The Kennedy Center, The Kimmel Center and Lincoln Center as well as The North Sea Jazz Festival, XPoNential Music Festival, Lake George Jazz Festival, Springfield Jazz and Roots Festival and Washington Women in Jazz Festival.
Her debut album, I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles peaked at #13 on Amazon's 'Jazz New Release' chart, and #44 on the website's Jazz Best-Seller chart. Brinnel's music is rooted firmly in the original intentions of 1920s-1940s jazz, arranged such that the energy is preserved but new life is undoubtedly breathed into them. Acclaimed trumpeter Terell Stafford praises Brinnel for “honoring the history of this music” and sounding “so pure and soulful” that “I can’t stop listening!” Her sophomore album Beautiful Tomorrow will be released on March 17th, 2023 on Outside in Music, and features trumpeter Terell Stafford.
