Releasing April 2015 on Sunnyside Records
Recorded during the summer of 2014, New Day features 9 new original compositions and several vocal performances, including an arresting rendition of Jimmy Webb’s classic ‘Highwayman’. The record marks Hays’s return to the studio and first release in over 3 years. Produced by Matt Pierson (Brad Mehldau, Joshua Redman, Mark Turner), the new album also features special guests Gregoire Maret (harmonica) and Tony Scherr (guitar), and the core trio of Rob Jost (bass) and Greg Joseph (drums). The record will be released in April 2015 on Sunnyside Records.
