Brentwood, 8.49am: 19°C, broken clouds

Chay Appleyard

I've been at Phoenix FM since February 2014. I'm a local singer/songwriter who plays in a couple of bands - and I also host 50 Shades of Chay on Thursdays evening at 8pm.

I normally play music that I love and interests me whilst having other local artists in the studio with me. Often they are friends who I have met in my decade of being in the local music scene.
