Aubrey Hays is an Austin-based musician who is set to release her debut album very soon this summer of 2019. Following the success of her 2018 NPR Tiny Desk submission, Aubrey started a band with drummer, Conner Ingle, and together, they currently perform all around the live music venues of the Austin, TX area and hopefully soon, across the country. Check out the 2019 Tiny Desk submission that they made together!

In this episode, Aubrey talks about growing up watching her mom make theater and eventually getting a theater degree herself. Aubrey shares the struggle to find her own way as a performer. She tells Amy about how music is her way to connect to an audience, especially her song, “Mean to Me.”
