Have to regain my manliness after Mr. Dreamy’s song yesterday, so I’m going back to the cute girl well.
Hayley Legg is an Australian with a ton of YouTube videos and her own Web site, which is a great testament to the possibilities afforded a musician in the new technological landscape. She’s unsigned and plays in bars and clubs like aspiring musicians have for eons, but she has a level of exposure unheard of a decade ago.
Whether or not her online efforts have resulted in any CD sales, who knows. But this cover of Outkast’s ‘Hey Ya’ has been viewed more than 54,000 times and it’s one of 70 videos she has posted on YouTube. Impressive.
