American Idol season 10 chanteuse, Haley Reinhart has just dropped what she calls her “first original EP.” The singer co-wrote all 7 songs on Off The Ground. Magnus Tingsek and Anders Grahn produced the set released on Haley’s own independent imprint Reinhart Records.
“My very first original EP #OffTheGround is officially available NOW on all digital/streaming platforms!!!,” Haley wrote on Instagram. “First and foremost, I have to thank @tingsek & @grahna for writing and producing this body of work with me. I enjoyed our process, communicating from LA to Sweden, even our 3am phone calls.
Haley continues, “The work was always filled with passion and dedication and I am forever grateful for the finished product! I have plenty to thank and more gushing to do, so look out for more posts to follow!”
“These photos represent my journey throughout this EP,” Haley writes alongside a slide show of photographs representing her musical journey. “I can’t tell you what a dream and wild ride it’s been role-playing all of these different characters in these songs and videos (who as I’m sure you can tell, are all a piece of me)!”

Haley looks to push boundaries
“If I can do anything with this EP or my music in general, it’s to constantly push the boundaries and show people and artists everywhere that there is ALWAYS room to show every side of who you are, not just fit into some tiny box that hinders your full creative capacity..!” Haley shares, “I love you all and thank you so much for listening.”
Two songs off the EP, “Roll the Dice” and “Off the Ground” were released as singles in 2021, alongside creative music videos. The music is slinky, retro yet fresh and contemporary. Check out all 7 tracks below.
