Gina Hadley is turning heads and raising eyebrows everywhere she goes with an infectious blend of gritty attitude and alluring musical intelligence. From the moment you first lay eyes on this sun-kissed brick house you know you’re in the presence of a SUPERSTAR.
Born and raised in Miami, FL, Hadley was exposed to a melting pot of people, cultures and musical influences. She grew up listening to country, reggae, calypso, salsa, rock, jazz and rhythm and blues. Each and every genre danced its way to the depths of her soul and helped mold the dynamic singer/songwriter fans have appropriately dubbed the "Rock n' Soul" Diva.
Hadley began her musical journey at the young age of nine-years-old as she was awarded Best Female Singer honors at the Myrtle Grove Gifted Center. Her natural vocal talent paired incredibly with her vast and intimate interest in poetry, which spawned pages upon pages of thoughtful prose that eventually translated into the songs Hadley performs today.
After a number of performances throughout the local Atlanta area and nearly endless songwriting sessions, Hadley dropped her debut record, Slave 2 Love. The first project is a hybrid of grunge rock laced with the sultry textures of a beautiful female vocal tone. While the confidence of her artistry is undeniable, the music on Gina's freshman opens with concrete rock definition, but seductively morphs into an R&B quiet storm. Now, while both styles are complementary of Gina's vocal diversity and writing ability, to know her as an artist is to embrace the raw, raspy metallic heart of her soul. That is all being accomplished on the current project "Freak By Nature".
On "Freak By Nature", Gina has COMPLETELY stepped into her own with every breath and sound. The production of the current music is consistent yet adventurous. Her vocals have been elevated, finding an even more comfortable place within her sound. She is giving no apology to her aggressive approach which explores more elements of Rock than the previous album. Contextually, the material is so bold that it’s sure to ignite a strong decisive reaction amongst the audience. Each song on this album is saturated with heart, passion and dripping with honesty. What more can you ask of an artist?
Keep your eyes and ears open for Gina Hadley. She is an artist that all will behold for years to come!
