Truth be told, songwriter Christy Hays never set out to become a musician. But it came quite naturally, being surrounded by music while growing up, and ever since her father showed her how to play the major chords on an old Gibson, the spirit was awakened.
After what felt like a crash course in the business end of the music industry during a brief and daunting stint in Nashville, a move to Austin led Hays to an entire community of artists to collaborate with, and a more welcoming atmosphere. These days, she spends her summers in Montana and on the road, and she returns to Austin for more collaborative projects and a show or two. Speaking of which, don’t miss Hays when she performs this Wednesday night at Hole In the Wall, 2538 Guadalupe, on a bill with San Antonio artist Noah Harris, and dynamic duo Blake Whitmire & Beth Chrisman.
Hays starts out the evening at 9 p.m. Very recommended.
