Independent Gem Tray Haggerty Can’t Be A “Walking Lick” On His Catchy New Single



(Friday, August 27th 2021) Today, Tray Haggerty released a brand new single, “Walking Lick” – a track his supporters (which he calls “family”) have been eagerly awaiting.

Originally from Dallas before taking his talents to the west coast where he’s now based in LA, Tray Haggerty is a talented and accomplished independent hip hop artist, singer, and songwriter with a well-developed style of his own – not to mention hugely excited to be bringing new music to his supporters this week. His first drop since February this year, his hugely catchy new single “Walking Lick” and its accompanying high-flying diamond heist themed visual are well worth the wait.

Tray Haggerty is bringing all the energy on the upbeat, incredibly catchy “Walking Lick” – contrasting the booming, bouncy production with his signature, confident style and a unique command over a wide range of vocal styles. Tray’s signature style makes use of his dynamic vocal to effortlessly switch between punching bars, intricate melodic flows, catchy hooks, and a third high-pitched affected-vocal gear that comes and goes at just the right times.

In the accompanying music video (soon to follow), we follow along as Tray and his team plot and carry out a lick of their own – disabling alarms, immobilizing security, and avoiding lasers as they carry out their mission. But be sure to remember Rule #1 (“Don’t Be A Walking Lick”) … so make sure you aren’t the next mission!

Tray Haggerty is a talented LA-based, Dallas-born independent hip hop artist and award-winning songwriter with a wide range, loyal following, and a distinct polished style with broad appeal that draws on the best elements of hip hop, R&B, and his deep southern roots. 

As an artist, his catchy, authentic style and magnetic personality has helped him independently build a large, growing community of loyal supporters (“family” he calls them) reflected by his hugely engaged following, his very impressive 200K+ Monthly Spotify Listeners, and over 10M+ overall streams.  Some of Tray’s most popular songs to date are from his most recent project, ‘Blossom’ released in 2020 – tracks like “2 Sides” and “Bodies”, the video for which has over 850K views on Youtube. Another fan favorite is “Brokn Roses”, the title track off his 2018 album, ‘Brokn Roses’ – as well as his appearance on “Mona Lisa” alongside Valtntn and Peter Fenn which has over 12M streams on Spotify alone. 

As a songwriter, Tray has worked with major labels, recording artists, and television shows – building an impressive resume that includes multiple writing credits on Lecrae’s 2020 project, ‘Restoration’ (#1 Christian Rap Album), Sho Madjozi’s viral Tik Tok hit “Spirits Up” (50M+ views), and Dove Award nomination for his writing on Gawvi’s “Sin.” 

If we’re lucky, “Walking Lick” signals the return of Tray, so expect to see more from him going forward! Keep an eye out for the music “Walking Lick” music video, and more new music dropping this fall.
