Hayley Reardon

 Recently naming her a 2012 "Bostonian Of The Year", The Boston Globe characterized her as..."a confident, radiant teenage singer/songwriter who is helping to pen the next chapter of the Boston folk scene...while Reardon is rapidly making a name for herself under the stage lights, it could be said that she's having a bigger impact on her peers across the country as a leading spokesperson for bullying prevention.  By pairing her music with a message of collective responsibility, she has become an effective teen-to-teen ambassador, sought after by schools nationwide."
