This week’s artist is one that I hold near and dear to my heart because of the songs and because of the person that she is.
Her songs are raw and the writing is as real as rain. She takes seemingly everyday happenings and crafts them into song in a way that leaves you hanging on every word.
Christy Hays is an artist that I have had the immeasurable pleasure to play with nearly every summer since roughly 2014. Christy is a crafty songwriter and her vocals are seriously scrumptious.
She is a mix between the unique quality of Emmylou Harris and her own mixture of grit and heartfelt expression. Her writing effortlessly paints pictures of landscapes and curious characters all of which create the pulse of everyday life.
Christy has released a whole slew of albums from full band performances to her by her lonesome, and her newest album River Swimmer is due out April 27, 2018. Christy is one of the hardest working musicians I know and this album is for sure going to be tops. Make sure to check out her site for the older albums that are available and of course if you like what you hear pre order River Swimmer… and guess what?!?! You can even get that one on vinyl!!!
