Aubrey Hays at Far Out Lounge

By: Laurie Gallardo

It’s a distinctive voice, as gentle as it is powerful. Aubrey Hays wields their power with the warmest, richest tones, from dramatic sweeps taking you to climactic moments in “Statue,” to the bright and hopeful shimmer of “I Wanna See This Through,” with only a slight quiver of uncertainty as they present a question from within, “Wouldn’t it be nice to believe in yourself? / Wouldn’t it be nice to believe?”

Aubrey Hays is one of the next featured guests at The Far Out Lounge and Stage‘s Far Out and Proud music series for Pride month, wrapping up with a show tonight, Wednesday June 29. Joining them on the bill is singer and producer Boy Sim (who produced the “I Wanna See This Through” remix on today’s AMM), and Houston-based songwriter Dillon Biggs. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the music starts at 7 p.m.
