Matt Hay is a New Zealand based singer-songwriter whose quietly astute songs, and unique blend of country, blues and roots rock, often draw comparison to the likes of John Hiatt and JJ Cale.

He was also a member of roots rock outfit Surge, whose album ‘Then Again’ received critical acclaim, and has featured as a side man for New Zealand blues legends Darren Watson, Dave Murphy and Marg Layton.
Hay began performing as a solo artist in 2006 and has three releases to his name - Inside Stories released in 2007, Where do we go from here? released in 2012 and now his brand new album Something Blue released Oct 2017.
