[News] Hailee announced as iHeartRadio’s “On The Verge” Artist

Hailee Steinfeld embraced her passion for music early-on in her childhood.

“My parents will tell you there’s never a time when I wasn’t singing,” she says.

In realizing how much she enjoyed singing and performing as other forms of expression, Hailee challenged herself as an artist to explore opportunities to grow as an actress and eventually, a singer/songwriter.

At 14 years old, the Coen brothers cast Hailee in her breakout role in True Grit, which earned her an Oscar® nomination for Best Supporting Actress; a Screen Actors Guild nomination for “Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role”; and a BAFTA nomination in the category of “Best Actress in a Leading Role.” Subsequent major roles followed in Ender’s Game, Romeo and Juliet, Three Days to Kill, and Begin Again, all the while as Hailee continued to privately hone her vocal skills. In 2015, we discovered just how versatile Hailee is when she shared with the world her musical talent in Pitch Perfect 2. It not only set the stage for her to blossom as an artist but established a platform for Hailee to launch her musical career.

“I wanted everything to happen exactly the way it’s happening now. After True Grit, I was looking and waiting for a role in which I could segue into making music. When Pitch Perfect 2 came along, it was the perfect opportunity to begin that transition. Part of the role involved being in the studio, recording, and performing. That’s when I realized, ‘I have to do this!’”

In early 2015, Hailee hit the studio with producers Mattman & Robin, Julia Michaels, and Justin Tranter to record her debut single “Love Myself.” The track heralds Hailee’s arrival with a soulfully seductive verse, entrancing production, a danceable bounce, and an unforgettable chorus.

Music provides a creative and personal platform for the real Hailee for the very first time. “I’m able to be really honest and candid through these songs,” she affirms. “When I’m doing a movie, it’s a character I’m playing—it’s not me. I feel like everybody will finally get to know me through this music. The experience of opening myself up has been awesome.”
