About Aubrey Haddard

Stemming from the idea of the “blue part” being the hottest and most intense part of a flame, singer/songwriter Aubrey Haddard has assembled a concept album that is an unapologetic testament steeped in concepts of love and passion. Though thematically centered, Blue Part is a fearless musical venture that balances between challenging and accessible. Some say indie-soul, some say power trio, some say jazz infused alt rock, but ultimately Blue Part simmers within its own flame. 

Born and raised in the Hudson River Valley of New York, AH now performs consistently throughout the North East. After placing second in the Hudson Valley Voice competition in 2013, and founding her stylistic “Rock & Soul” group Breakfast for the Boys, she continued her path as a richly diverse performer to the prestigious Berklee College of Music. Once relocating to Boston, Haddard was awarded ‘Massachusetts Solo Artist of the Year’ Bridging the Music Productions, and has become the front woman of the Boston-based original funk group The New Review, heralding recognition from the illustrious NPR Tiny Desk Competition stating “it sounds like she’s about to catch fire.” AH, currently joined by drummer Josh Strmic and bassist Charley Ruddell, is one of New England’s most eccentric and dynamic performers on the touring circuit. In May of 2017, the Aubrey Haddard trio began working on a full length studio album called Blue Part, a concept album steeped in the concepts of love, relationships, and passion. Now, over a year later, the trio is proud to present its debut album in tandem with Very Jazzed of French Kiss Label Group
