Hayley's Manager Steve Abbott confirmed to me at Cadogan Hall that Hayley has sold over one million albums in the UK alone - based on albums sold by the record company to shops (shipments) as this kind of information is most readily available to them. So once again, it's time for...
and roll on the next million!
The situation with over the counter sales is not quite clear, the total must be very close to one million and may have passed it but I don't yet have confirmation. But what Steve told me, measured the same way that all record companies do... is definitely good enough for a celebration!!!
Well done Hayley. That really is something as a classical artist in Britain. I think you have paved the way for more classical crossover artists in this country. Thank you for bringing your music here, we are forever grateful to you!
