Re: Claude Hay

His new cd Rollercoaster is really good.A must check out.
I guess this his first cd with an actual band .
What I think makes it so good is the quality of the songs.Just great songs with some groove.Definately has his own unique sound within a blues rock framework.

Your rock candy baby
Your hard sweet and sticky

Re: Claude Hay

Trust Curby to beat me to this one......

Caught Claude last night as the tour guest of Wille & The Bandits. What a great vibe this guy has and the tone he gets from his home-made Resonator, "Loretta" is amazing. Not too sure about his kick-drum set up - last time I saw something like that it was chasing Patrick Troughton's Dr Who..... A master though at looping but I'd I've liked a little more just man & guitar; great vocal range though.

So impressed I bought 3 of his albums, including Rollercoaster....then I find out there's a 4th and a live DVD out there....

If you're thinking of catching any of the WATB shows in the UK and Australia, get early and check this guy out.

Re: Claude Hay

After giving them a good playing, can give Claude's earlier (solo) albums, Deep Fried Satisfied & I Love Hate You solid recommendations.

His debut album, Kiss The Sky (2007) and a 2014 Live CD/DVD - Live At The Clarendon are both reasonably priced at CDBaby. (Reads like the DVD is Region (0) Free.)

Re: Claude Hay

Got hold of a copy of Claude's Live At The Clarendon DVD/CD from 2014.

First thing that hits is the audience; looks like a 1920's themed Rocky Horror Night, probably an interesting back story there.... Anyway, main thing is Claude's performance and does he ever lift the "one-man-band" thing to a new level, a master of the looper. That, and 3 of his unique, home-made guitars combined with his original material as well as particular takes on We Will Rock You and Come Together; there are worse ways to spend an hour +.
