Watch List: Hailey Knox, Repping the "Geeks"
Hailey Knox is a 17-year-old YouNow sensation making her way from the fame of the interwebs to the status of an album-ed artist. Last year she was uploading her covers of popular songs - the most viewed of which being "Ex's and Oh's" by Elle King. This year she is releasing her first EP.
Knox's impressive mastery over her bluesy riffs is what makes us want to listen. Her youthful vigor and consistent work ethic are what keep her fresh on the ever-changing music scene.
The music video for "Awkward", Knox's 2016 take on an anthem for teenage independence, was released two days ago. Her use of an iPad and spunky, unrelenting eye-contact with the camera illustrate her affinity for not only technology, but a direct sense of humor. Her self-proclaimed awkwardness is in fact an attribute of her charm.
