    Chris Lay’s love for such a variety of genres leads to a writing process that often borders on identity crisis. The result, though, is a sound that borrows from each; a window into his world and the way he experiences those styles. Like a lover of food who finds inspiration in the local and the exotic, his sound is a product of both wide influences and the musicians around him. That sound is based in pop, raised on jazz, rooted in folk, and a student of soul.On his long-awaited debut album, “Point Her to the Sun,” Chris offers up a collection of those musings, describing the familiar, pondering the indescribable, and sharing his own humble wisdom through organic instrumentation and plain honesty.
