Jay is an original singer/songwriter made out of the same mold as Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, or Neil Young. Encompassing blues, folk, country, and beyond, Jay is a real craftsman in the art of songwriting. Peter Stone Brown(songwriter, music journalist whose work has appeared on Bob Dylan.com) has referred to Jay as his favorite songwriter/artist from Canada. Another champion of Jay's music is Rick Beresford, talented singer/songwriter and writer of If The Drinking Don't Kill Me( Her Memory Will) which was a hit for George Jones, among other hits. As an artist who never plays the same way twice on purpose, Jay is poised to become a real singer/songwriter's singer/songwriter. Artists like this come around only once or twice every generation. So have a listen, and drop by and see a show sometime!
