Career

In 2010, Haley Reinhart auditioned for the ninth season of the talent reality show, ‘American Idol,’ but unfortunately she could not go past the judge’s rounds and was unable to advance to the Hollywood round. However, she came back again for the next season’s audition and was selected. She sang two songs, Alicia Keys's ‘Fallin’ and The Beatles' ‘Oh! Darling’, of which only the latter was broadcast on television.

Throughout her ‘American Idol’ journey, Haley impressed the audiences and often the judges with her singing. She sang many memorable covers including ‘Breathless’ by Corinne Bailey Rae, ‘God Bless the Child’, ‘The Long and Winding Road’ by The Beatles, and ‘House of the Rising Sun’ during her stint on the show.

She earned a lot of praise from both the judges and the audiences for her melodious voice. However, Haley was also criticized several times by the judges for her imperfect stage presence and her choice of songs. Despite the criticism, she stuck with her ‘originality’ and continued performing every week with the same élan.

After her ‘American Idol’ days, Haley signed with the Interscope Records in 2011 and released her debut album. Later that year Haley teamed up with her fellow ‘American Idol’ contestants Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, and James Durbin to release a Walmart Exclusive EP, featuring her highlights from the show.

Some of her most popular tracks like ‘House of the Rising Sun’, ‘Bennie and the Jets’ and the previously unreleased recording of ‘You Oughta Know’ were included on that EP. It debuted at #37 on the ‘Billboard 200’ and sold over 14,000 copies.

In 2015, Haley Reinhart earned her share of fame after performing with Scott Bradlee's band Postmodern Jukebox. She did a Jazz cover of Radiohead's ‘Creep’ with the band which went on to spend 58 consecutive weeks on Billboard's Jazz digital charts. She was widely praised for that cover and was critically acclaimed.

Later she did a cover of Elvis Presley's ‘Can't Help Falling in Love’, which was eventually used in a commercial and quickly became viral. The cover ranked at #16 on the ‘US Adult Contemporary’ chart and was also certified Gold by the ‘Recording Industry Association of America’.

Her second studio album titled ‘Better’ was released on April 29, 2016. The album ranked at #22 on ‘Billboard's Independent Albums’ chart. The title track became the biggest hit from the album.

In September 2017, she released her third studio album titled ‘What's That Sound?’ The album had several popular songs including the lead single ‘Baby It's You’, ‘The Letter’ and ‘For What It's Worth’.

In 2018, Reinhart gained additional notice as a featured vocalist on Jeff Goldblum's debut album The Capitol Studios Sessions and on Vicetone's single "Something Strange", which peaked at number 23 on Billboard's Dance/Mix Show Airplay charts.

On June 1, 2018, she released the standalone single "Last Kiss Goodbye", which charted at number 15 on Billboard's Jazz Digital Songs chart.
