Born and raised on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Aubrey Hays comes from the tradition of bold, fearless singer-songwriters like Joni Mitchell, Janis Joplin, Fiona Apple, and Regina Spektor. A master of songs that contain untold depths and unexpected instrumental twists, Hays showcases their technical skills without sacrificing the immediacy of pop music. Hays’s versatility shows them to be equally at home on an electric guitar, piano, ukulele, or vocal looper, and their command of their instruments allow them to be a dominating yet vulnerable presence on any stage.
In their coverage of her 2018 Tiny Desk Contest entry, NPR stated Hays’s “tone and emotion is rich and unguarded” and that unique characteristic of Hays’s voice and playing has helped them develop into one of Austin’s most impressive artists. Hays was selected to be part of the Austin Music Foundation’s Artist Development Program in 2020, leading to her working with legendary Austin producer Frenchie Smith at his renowned studio The Bubble. Hays’s newest single “Statue” came from those sessions at The Bubble and promises to propel them to even more widespread acclaim.
“…[Hays’s] tone and emotion is rich and unguarded, backed by the quiet support of a soothing guitar.” – NPR
“…‘Parachute,’ has a dreamy, romantic lilt that floats across your chest, effortlessly capturing the twinkly-eyed, rose-colored tenderness of falling in love.” – NPR
“…you can gather how gifted this singer-guitarist is just from the skills heard on her sole Spotify single, “Isn’t It Enough”. – KUTX
