Editorial Reviews

Hayley Sings is the debut album from American Dad! star Rachael MacFarlane. MacFarlane voices the beloved animated character of Hayley Smith on the Emmy nominated television show, American Dad!, currently in its seventh season. The 14-track playlist is inspired by music from the 60s and 70s. "When I was growing up, my dad introduced me to groups like Simon and Garfunkel and The Beatles and Crosby, Stills and Nash. So we decided to run with the idea of re-imagining music from my childhood, which would be appropriate for Hayley to sing.

Two of the album s fourteen songs will be included on that season-opening episode of American Dad!. First is Someone to Watch Over Me, which introduces Hayley s vocal skills. It s a song I ve been singing since high school, says MacFarlane, We wanted to strip it down and create a quiet, introspective version with the small group. Second is Makin Whoopee, the album opener. The show s producers, says MacFarlane, were going for a Fabulous Baker Boys feel, which was perfect for the storyline. Out of This World, is also on the album. The classic Harold Arlen/Johnny Mercer song is a tongue-in-cheek nod to the fact that Hayley is becoming romantically involved with an alien, and would be a great addition to a future episode s soundtrack.

A few additional standards found their way onto the album. I m Glad There Is You is, says MacFarlane, my father s favorite. It is really stripped down just me with George Doering on guitar and it s a love letter to all the musicians, and everyone else, who made [the album] possible.

The remaining tracks are all drawn from the 1960s and 70s. Paul Simon s Feelin Groovy , Tedd Firth of the Chiffons 1963 hit, One Fine Day, written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. A second Goffin-King composition, Up On the Roof, also made the cut. To close the album, MacFarlane chose Lennon and McCartney s All My Loving, arranged and conducted by Matt Catingub with just Doering s guitar and a bank of strings.

You probably know the songs, but I bet you didn't know Seth MacFarlane's sister has a transcendental voice. Seriously, I couldn't believe how amazing she sounds on this record. Check out some of the samples below to hear what I'm saying...I couldn't help wanting to hear more.

Get a glass of wine, shack up with your mate, and enjoy this wonderful music.

I have become a belated fan of American Dad, & mistook this for a novelty album.
NO WAY!

Rachel MacFarlane has a sweet, wonderful voice, that charms the socks off me!
Absolutely beautiful voice, a wonderful CD Album, and fully worth the money! Many more songs than were on TV.

SECRET EXTRA TRACK--on track #14, there is an extra song, not listed on the cover, nor on Amazon.

"Secret Agent Man"--a tribute to Stan Smith, one might say.

The Hipster gives this a Thumbs Up Rating. Well worth your money!

PS--after hearing her sing, I know why Roger had a crush on her.

The CD was in great shape and arrived very promptly. I hope that both MacFarlanes continue to do many more albums,

I'm not super big into modern Jazz so this throw back style of music really calls to me.

The album is perfect lounge, or for sitting around with a great bottle of wine. (or box in my case)

I love Rachael's voice and it's what attracted me to the show American dad. They did a wonderful job when she sang Making Woopie at Roger's bar. I kept playing that segment over and over. With the sad disappointment that the song ended much too soon. That's why I was so glad she made this CD. This is not the same version in the program and I was a little disappointed when I played it. However, when I played the CD on better sound equipment, the big band music and Rachael's voice made the arrangements come alive!!! The only thing better is real live music. I still love Hayley and Rachael and wish them luck. While the masses may flock to Taylor Swift and the likes, my choice is a small bar with Rachael at the mic with a real back up swing band playing lyrics of life and love!! Love you Rachael/Hayley!!!

If you like the smoothness of fine scotch, bourbon or brandy, you'll enjoy the smooth, classic jazz vocals by Rachel MacFarlane. Some of the tracks are slow and dreamy. Others are more lively and upbeat. Baby boomers are most likely to relish the familiar tunes on this release.

Ms. MacFarlane is at her best when things are slowed down and intimate. "Someone To Watch Over Me" and "Feelin' Groovy" are the highlights. Anyone who has ever experienced depression will identify with the Paul Williams song. Since I've officially given up on Diana Krall, I'll listen to Rachel now.

The story goes that in the wake of the release of Seth MacFarlane's big band album "Music is Better Than Words", sister Rachel was inspired to make and forge her way in the jazz world by recording "Hayley Sings." The rest, as they say, is history.

Just when you thought one talented MacFarlane kid was enough, here comes Rachel with her smooth mezzo-soprano voice. Her interpretations of the selected songs are just lovely, the arrangements are well-done, and the instrumentalists/soloist performances are top-notch.

Harkening to her childhood love of the "hippie sound" of 60's/70's, almost half the album showcases this genre. This might scare away those wanting an entire album of big band (like Seth's), and the second half of the CD drags somewhat. But overall, this solid album should be welcomed with open arms into the easy listening/smooth jazz community.
