HALLEY is a Multicultural Asian Soul band based in Tokyo, Japan. Growing up in international communities of HongKong, South Korea and Japan, the members grew their intricate taste in music and rich understanding in sound from a young age. Heavily influenced by RnB, Gospel, Funk, Hip-Hop and Jazz, HALLEY's composition is unique in that they blend three languages into the mix of a Western R&B and Asian Pop essence.
HALLEY released their 1st EP "Daze" in September (2023) after releasing 3 singles in a row. And the lead track "Sugary" was selected as a heavy rotation by 21 different radio stations all over Japan. And their highly anticipated 1st album "From Dusk Till Dawn" will be released on 8th March 2024. HALLEY will be embarking on their first ever one-man tour (28th March Tokyo; 30th March Osaka) after performing at SXSW 2024 in Austin, Texas, USA.
