Hailing from the Blue Mountains, award winning Australian solo artist Claude Hay blends slide guitar, sitar, bass and drums to create music that invokes the best of stomping traditional blues, hard rock and booty-shaking funk, all delivered with chops to burn and a vocal range to match.
Claude is perhaps the world’s ultimate do-it-yourself musician – forging his live sound on the back of looping technology which allows him to create a band vibe without the band. This approach has seen this fiercely independent artist build an audience for his music globally, with the release of three award-winning home-made albums.
Taking DIY a step further than most, Claude has built all his own equipment, including ‘Betty’, his double-necked guitar, made out of a kitchen benchtop, and Stella, his new cigar box’ guitar, which started life as a $6 baking tin.
