"Jay Brown"

'Heartfelt tales of road-weary americana.' The Guardian 28/7/07 - The Guardian


Jay made, and self released his first six song ep 'Above the Restaurant' in Feb 05'. Since getting together with the band, a further six track ep was made and sold mainly at gigs. This summer a twelve track album was recorded, and has distribution plans with 'Byte Music'. Four of these tracks are available on Myspace.



The songs are inspired by love, romance, loss and friendship. Often reminicsent of Ryan Adams, often Ray Lamontagne, the songs are performed by the band with the energy of early Springsteen. The romance found in the playing of the piano and guitars/strings are a perfect foil for the quietly powerful vocals. The band met by chance in a recording studio and have since achieved a large amount in a fairly small time. Jay was recently the main support for 'Duke Special' on the Edinburgh leg of his latest UK Tour. Other support slots have been with the highly respected Kevin McDermott, and Stephanie Dosen. The pinnacle so far was a week spent in New York City with the band, where Jay met with representatives of 'Arc Music' and signed a three year representation deal with the company. The band were also showcased at 'Arlenes Grocery' NY.
