Vanessa Briscoe Hay is Athens Georgia music royalty. Her “first-wave” band PYLON helped create the Athens music scene and heavily influenced the 80’s & 90’s American pop underground. AllMusic wrote that Pylon's "role as elder statesmen of the alternative rock explosion is unassailable”.
Along with R.E.M. and the B-52’s, Pylon is part of the “Big Three of Athens Music” and were among the first artists to be enshrined on the new Athens Music Walk of Fame.
And Vanessa keeps the heart and soul of PYLON music moving into the future with her new band, the Pylon Reenactment Society. From their new debut album "Magnet Factory”, to her definitive PYLON collection simply titled “BOX”, to a scorching track on the upcoming Kevn Kinney Tribute Album - Hay is keeping her foundational music in a leadership role.
She’s still an Athens resident who never misses a Dawgs game and is a life-long Braves fan, too! And it’s an incredible honor to have her join us today - Vanessa Briscoe Hay, welcome to Braves Country!
