"Bluejays Make 10 Best List"

Bluejay's debut "A Hundred Songs" named one of the best local releases of 2006 by Southeast music magazine Stomp & Stammer. - Stomp & Stammer

"Revered Online Source For Americana Loves The Bluejays"

Miles Of Music thought so much of The Bluejays' debut, they're even iffering for sale with a money-back guarantee. Now that's confidence!

"Songwriter/bassist/lead vocalist Jay Murphree is the key figure in Atlanta, GA`s "Country Rock `n` Roll Hitmakers" The Bluejays. Murphree`s voice combines the smoothness and charm of Chris Isaak with the honky-tonk flair of Buck Owens. The tunes fit somewhere in that bit of comparative signposting as well as the band offer up a healthy 15-track (presumably culled from a hundred) set of smooth rockin` twang. Hints of rockabilly, desert rock `n` roll and Tex-Mex emerge from these fine tunes, which, in fairness, include a few written and performed by the other talented members of the quartet. Their understated retro quality is rounded out with classic country songwriting, ensuring a good time - and a few heartbroken ones too - from start to finish." -- Robinson, Miles Of Music -


"A Hundred Songs" 2006
Recieving airplay on numerous independent radio shows and genre-specific programs around the world.
The release was named one of the top ten local releases by the always-tough-to-please Stomp & Stammer.



The problem with mouch of the Americana music featured in the alt-country bible "No Depression"? It's depressing. With jangly-guitars, tamborines and on-going back-up harmonies from every member, The Bluejays' take on the genre owes as much to power-pop, roots-rock and toe-tapping rockabilly as it does to Hank Williams or Gram Parsons. While their music is just as earnest and sincere as those particular forebearers, The Bluejays would rather fill the dancefloor than cry in their collective beer. Perhaps it's this original take on the genre that's had them twice named "Atlanta's Best Country/Rockabilly Band" by Creative Loafing.
