Praise is pouring in for Listen Up! with the New York Times declaring it “a taut album full of meaty, thickly arranged pop-soul that suits her booming voice extremely well” and USA Today giving the album 3 stars “..a vivacious bit of post-Adele neo-soul.” Artist Direct said “Haley Reinhart has made one of the best debuts of 2012, and she might just help revive a little old soul in the process.”
Haley celebrated the release of Listen Up! with a FREE performance at the Hard Rock Hollywood last night which THR.com reported on. Next up Haley will return to Chicago for a series of appearances starting Friday morning with a performance on WFLD’s Good Day Chicago. Saturday she will do a cd signing at 2pm at the Walmart in her home town of Wheeling (1455 E. Lake Cook Rd.) and later that evening at 9:30pm will play a free, all-ages concert at the Hard Rock Café in Chicago (63 W. Ontario).
