Wagner & Hays

WAGNER & HAYS have been called the Jekyll & Hyde of the corporate world by many schmucks within cubical hell. You see by day Chuck and Chad can be found in opposite corners of Johnson County, Kansas in khakis and button up shirts. It’s when the sun goes down that the computers and countless meetings get replaced with guitars, microphones and new tune ideas. As it has been proven time after time … the freaks do come out at night, and the WAGNER & HAYS freak flag flies loud and proud. They can always be found in the shadows creating new tunes in the hopes of stepping into a brighter light.

CHAD began his musical career playing drums and singing lead in high school bands. After recording various studio projects and collaborating with other musicians it was clear that music was his true passion. His voice has earned him hundreds of gigs including sharing the stage with Puddle of Mudd, I Mother Earth, Shooting Star, and Grand Funk Railroad. Chad lends his voice as a session vocalist to songwriters all over the world in hopes of helping them get their songs off the ground.

CHUCK, like Chad, started off playing drums. After a couple of decades behind the drum kit in countless projects he needed a new challenge and started teaching him self guitar and music production as the drums no longer fulfilled him musically. Chad explains “I have never met anyone with more drive and commitment in learning and mastering new skills. Chuck and I have partnered on many projects over the years and he’s one of those guys that seems to always just figure things out. Whatever he sets his mind too he gets it done with perfection and I feel very lucky to have such a driven professional partner, as that is not how my brain works.”

WAGNER & HAYS wrote and recorded a previous collection of songs under C2 - She’s into me. Currently they are finishing up a brand new batch of songs and figuring out the best way to release them for both placement opportunities and commercially for everyone to hear.
