“Years before Nick and I started making electronic music together, a brilliant and troubled friend of mine came up with the band name, Host Bodies. It stuck in my head and when I started making beats at age 19, I called the project Host Bodies. There’s layers to it. I don’t want to say it has any one meaning, but it feels like a magic word for me. It empowers me, humbles me, reminds me that I’m more than a body, but also that having a body is a profound gift.”

Music Update Central reviews Rändi Fay’s new holiday single “Joy Whispered.” Check it out here.
“The inspiration for ‘Joy Whispered’ came in a songwriting challenge where I had to choose five words from a list of ten and write a Christmas song using them. Two words really stuck out to me: ‘silent’ and ‘light.’ I don’t think I had considered those two words together before, giving me a fresh image of the familiar manger scene. There must have been the feeling of ‘hush’ among the people gathered under quiet starlight in awe of the new born baby, whispering excitement – so human and so divine!”
