ASHEVILLE, NC – Ingot Rock announces the signing of Australian blues/roots guitarist Claude Hay and the September 21 release of his label debut CD, Deep Fried Satisfied, distributed in the U.S. by Burnside Distribution.

Hailing from Australia’s Blue Mountains, Claude Hay is a prime example of the Do-It-Yourself work ethic, having hand-built his own twin-neck guitar, lovingly called “Betty,” and customized his tour van with a kitchen and a recording studio. In addition to building his own instruments, Hay also built his own house, too. And his musical approach is no different – he’s literally a one-man band, constructing layer-upon-layer of instruments live and in the studio until he has listeners guessing where the rest of the band is hiding.
