Guest Biography

Piper Hays is an Americana-soul singer/songwriter from Los Angeles.

She began her musical journey overseas while on various adventures through Africa and Europe.  Piper realized the traditional path was not for her, so she packed a backpack and her guitar and started playing on the streets of Spain, Germany, and England to survive while so far away from home.

Her music can be described as soulful Americana music, but Piper herself refers to it as “Astro-Soul” which is a mix of all her various influences including Billie Holiday & Norah Jones to Lead Belly & Led Zeppelin, Shakey Graves and Florence and the Machine and many more.

Her producer Matt Ross-Spang explains that “Piper’s music has moments of cool darkness with a real grown-up groove”. During the pandemic, Piper redirected her path from helping others through music to working directly with people struggling with mental health and substance use disorders which she has been doing for the past 4 years. She is excited to dedicate more time to music and continue helping people wherever she can.

Life Changes Show

Life Changes Show with Filippo Voltaggio
Show Host
Filippo Voltaggio

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
