Haley Gowland Music

Performer, Composer, Instructor


 My name is Haley, and I'm more than professionally disguised as a 16 year old (I'm 24); I'm a composer of alternative rock and film music, a solo and full band performer (check out “Food for Bears” on the Music page!), and a passionate instructor. Be sure to contact me on my CONTACT page for inquiries regarding gigs, lessons, or questions of any kind!

Sonically gratifying and musically astute… Just the best EP. Release we’ve heard all year.

“Haley scored my past 2 films. Her musical knowledge is strong by itself, but what set her apart from everyone else was her versatility and ability to score for any situation I threw at her... We shared a belief that scoring can never be random, and the sound track must reflect the deeper meaning of the work. She had a lot of insight to offer during these conversations. The scores enhanced the final product for sure. Great work ethic, great person, and great music! Thanks Haley!”

She was not only an incredible, adaptive musician, but also a very gifted teacher. She was creative and effective in her approach and well loved by all her students, coworkers, and bosses.
