Steph Hayes is a singer and songwriter who spent several years in pop/rock group Stargazer Lily.
She signed with Arista Records in 2000, has written with Billy Steinberg (Madonna, Roy Orbison),
John Shanks (Ashlee Simpson, Melissa Etheridge) and Shelley Peiken (Meredith Brooks) and many other
top industry songwriters. She has also recorded with Nelly Furtado, The John Lennon REMIX project, and
Ben Arnold. This year, Steph Hayes shared stages with Bitch, Erin McKewon, Namoli Brennet, Wayne Fishell, Jenny Owen-Youngs, Michelle Malone, Nicole Reynolds and gregory Douglass. Following the 2006 release of the album "Dirty Beauty" she now performs solo or with her band
The Good Problems.
Hayes’ current writing is a return to her more lyrical roots. At times solemn and at times mischeivious,
she now tours to support an exhilarating notebook addiction. "The goal of my career, and of my life is to be
a better songwriter. Touring has taught me how to accomplish that goal. To keep moving, to come and go,
to watch people, to visit places and submerge myself in them. And most importantly, to write it all down."
"Am I moving Forward or Running Away" is an epic saga of live on the road, love on the road, roads to nowhere towns and runnin...and wondering why you''re doing any of it!
"Silverspur Motel" is the story of a late night detour to a scary prairie town.....
"Out of Time" is Steph''s attempt to write a Johnny Cash song.....
"Ballerina" is about the one you want because you can''t have.....
