CHRISTY HAYS – SUNDAY, 6/7 @ 2:00pm
Raised in small farm town in Illinois, Christy Hays likes a wide sky. A writer since the age of 14, she has cultivated many stories. After college Christy spent the bulk of her 20’s in a small fishing community in rural Alaska. The solitude of the wilderness was a perfect catalyst to a deepening love for songwriting. In 2009 Hays moved to Nashville, TN where she released her first self titled collection of songs. Ever restless, she uprooted and two years later and landed in Austin, TX. In 2012 Hays record her second full length album ‘Drought’ with the help of producer, Roy Taylor. Time passed and after substantial touring and local live performance, Hays teamed up with local Austin analog lover, Doug Walseth of Cats Eye Studio in the summer of 2014. In December of 2014 Hays’ acclaimed solo effort, ‘O’ Montana’ was released.
