Both are true for Oklahoma singer-songwriter Kalyn Fay. The Cherokee songstress grew up neck-deep in the Bible Belt, but found her unique voice after venturing beyond religious music. While finishing her undergrad degree in 2012, she began writing her own music and by 2013, she was performing and touring.
Fay was working on her master’s degree while writing and recording for her debut album throughout 2014-2016. An album said to be “capable of inducing tears with it’s harsh truths,” Bible Belt was released on June 10, 2016 through Horton Records.
Questions of faith and tumultuous love, deeply-rooted in Oklahoma, were the raw building blocks Fay used to develop her intimate, breathtaking songs. Somewhere between vulnerable, brash, and beautiful lives this Okie starlet and a poetic soul wise beyond her years. She’s more than the Tulsa Sound. She’s how Tulsa sounds.
