“I have had very positive experiences working with The House of Songs. I was able to do a three week tour in Scandinavia during May 2013. I enjoy being a part of the local showcases that are held around Austin. It’s an amazing way to become connected to artists around the world. The opportunities that come from the program are endless.”

There’s nothing traditional about the path that led musician Christy Hays from her hometown in the fertile farmlands of the Midwest to the “Live Music Capital of the World.” But her unlikely journey, which took Hays from tiny Tuscola, Illinois to the seclusion of the Alaskan wilderness, from Southeast Asia to El Salvador in Central America, from the edge of civilization to the big city, and from depression and isolation to the stage and the limelight, is in some ways what makes this singer-songwriter’s songs so rich and powerful. In many ways, her story is your story. Her themes are timeless, yet her songs are very much of this time.” -Travis Truitt 2012
